As Muslims around the world celebrate the beginning of Ramadan, some are taking to social media to criticize Obama’s Ramadan greeting.
"I wish Muslims across America & around the world a month blessed with the joys of family, peace & understanding." —President Obama #Ramadan
— Barack Obama (@BarackObama) July 9, 2013
At issue is the forced feeding of Guantanamo Bay detainees during Ramadan fasting, as well as drone strikes in the Middle East that continue to erode the supposed good will that this president was supposed to inspire in the Muslim world.
Getting happy cause Obama wished us a blessed Ramadan? Lool. No. What about all the Muslims in Guantanamo Bay? What about their Ramadan?

I am assuming Obama's greetings to Muslims wrt Ramadan are also directed at Muslims he will be force feeding at #GTMO during that month.

Barack Obama wishing "Muslims around the world a peaceful Ramadan with their family" IS THE MOST HYPOCRITICAL TWEET IN TWITTER HISTORY
