Obama to Troops: Bibles And Xmas Cards Are Out – But This Is Ok?


It may come as a shock to some but the United States military has ordered troops serving in Muslim countries overseas to observe the Muslim holy month of Ramadan – as required by Sharia Law.

The order comes at a time when military regulations ban Bibles, the wearing of crosses or other religiously theme jewelry and even Christmas cards from home. If these items appear in parcels or packages sent to U.S. military personnel, they will be confiscated.

The Ramadan order, which appeared in a statement on U.S. Central Command website that has since been scrubbed, said soldiers are expected to:

“…be familiar with host-nation customs and courtesies to help facilitate a long-lasting mutual respect with local communities.” “U.S. military members serving in countries that observe Ramadan are required to adhere to certain practices while outside U.S. installations.”

“Members should be respectful of local customs and be patient with host nation personnel,” said Capt. Dan Sickles, host nation officer in-charge.”

“Ramadan is a countrywide religious celebration. Members should not make light of local customs and should also expect that during daylight hours host nation customer service will be abbreviated and less accommodating.”

Sickles said most stores off base would be closed during daylight hours and that Ramadan observances include fasting from dawn until sunset.
