John Kerry will again turn the Ben Franklin Room into a mini-mosque in 2016 to celebrate the end of the month of jihad, aka Ramadan. 2016 was one of the deadliest Ramadan’s in recent history including more than 50 Americans killed by Muslims and many more injured, mostly IN THE UNITED STATES.

Taxpayer funded Islamophilia runs rampant in DC. And unlike voting in a presidential election you will need to show a photo ID to participate. How many Muslim Brothers and Sisters (aka Ikhwan) will be in attendance?

Muslim communities are the ONLY communities around the world that Obama reaches out to…with your tax dollars.
An Iftar is a celebratory dinner breaking the fast during the Islamic month of Ramadan, the month of the Islamic calendar during which Muslims fast from dawn to sunset. Ramadan is the month Muslims believe the Qu’ran was revealed to the Prophet Mohamed; it is a month of reflection, generosity, and compassion for nearly 1.7 billion Muslims worldwide.
Secretary Kerry will make remarks at approximately 8:50 p.m.
Open Press for remarks only. Final access for all press, video cameras, still photographers, and writers is 7:30 p.m. from the C Street lobby.
