Rex Tillerson Ramadan Denier

By Douglas V. Gibbs

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has declined a request to host an event to mark Islam's holy month of Ramadan, two U.S. officials said, apparently breaking with a bipartisan tradition in place with few exceptions for nearly 20 years.

Question:  Should the United States Government have hosted a celebration of Nazi, Italian Fascist or Japanese holidays during World War II?

Tillerson turned down a request from the State Department's Office of Religion and Global Affairs to host an Eid al-Fitr reception as part of Ramadan celebrations, said two U.S. officials who declined to be identified because they were not authorized to speak publicly.

An appropriate move.  Now, let's ignore the federal court's illegal and unconstitutional blocking of Trump's travel bans, and realize we are at war with an enemy who wants us destroyed.

Muslim activists have accused President Donald Trump's administration of having an unfriendly attitude towards Islam.

Islam has had an unfriendly attitude towards The West.  Or, did you not notice the terror attacks, and the chants of "Death to America"?
