US Embassy moves Fourth of July Celebration to June 4 ‘out of respect for Ramadan’

Submission. Dhimmitude. Surrender. Why not just shut them down? via Blog: US Embassy moves Fourth of July Celebration to June 4 ‘out of respect for Ramadan’.

In a mind-boggling gesture of official US Government dhimmitude, the US Embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia celebrated our sacred Independence Day holiday on June 4, so as to avoid any conflict with the month-long Ramadan celebration. If you think any Islamic countries – there are 57 of them (not counting ISIS) that count themselves officially Islamic – will move their DC embassy’s celebration of Ramadan to accommodate our Independence holiday, I have some bridges to sell you.

“US Embassy celebrates 4th of July earlier out of respect for Ramadhan,” by Dylan Amirio

The United States Embassy enjoyed its annual 4th of July celebration on Thursday, June 4, one month early, in order to respect the upcoming Ramadhan month, which will begin on June 17 and last for one month.

US Ambassador to Indonesia Robert O. Blake and US Ambassador to ASEAN Nina Hachigian presided over the festivities, which involved brass band renditions of the Star-Spangled Banner and the Indonesian national anthem, Indonesia Raya.

Blake explained that the theme of the event leaned toward “green” development, which supported the US’ focus on building and promoting a green economy and more environmentally sustainable development.

He also praised Indonesia’s performance as a fully functioning democracy, aiming for further collaboration between the two countries in the years to come.

“The US will continue to support Indonesia in the future through its democratic achievements. Democracy is an American value which we have championed since [the country’s birth in] 1776,” Blake told the crowd during the festivities at his residence near Taman Suropati, Central Jakarta, on Thursday.

He added that moving the 4th of July celebrations to June 4 was one done out of respect for the upcoming Ramadhan month, which will last from June 17 to July 17.

The event also showcased a number of American products and businesses, including the Zero FX Electric Motorcycles, which Blake explained were an environmentally friendly vehicle used by the California Highway Patrol.

Officially, embassies are the national territory* of the country being represented, not of the host country. So there is no need to accommodate local sensibilities in celebrating our most sacred national holiday. Perhaps the pipe dream of peddling electric motorcycles to one of the world’s biggest petroleum exporters that happens to have a pretty large conventional motorcycle industry of its own took precedence over our national dignity?

It is a bedrock of Islamic scripture that infidels must bow down in submission to Islam and Muslims, being tolerated so long as they endure humiliations and pay a special tax. Muslims have no obligations at all to infidels, which is why you will never see an counterpart to the submission just demonstrated by the US Embassy in Jakarta.

This is a moment of national dhimmitude and deep shame. I hope someone will ask Marie Harf to explain if any Muslim countries plan on moving their embassy’s Ramadan celebrations to accommodate our Independence Day. That would allow for some great Harfing.

The State Department website says:

“While diplomatic spaces remain the territory of the host state, an embassy or consulate represents a sovereign state.”

    • Can anyone who claims to be “American” stand up to these muzzslimes? Every time we kowtow to their evil wishes, no matter how slight, we reinforce their determination to KILL us!!!!!  

      • USA citizens are for the most part in denial or totally ignorant concerning Islamic agenda. If folks would share the reality of shariah law, the results of political correctness, our gradual loss of free speech, etc. on Facebook instead of the usual inconsequential crap maybe the tide could turn….

  1. Dear friend,
    It’s very stupid to move the oficial national day of USA to June 4th. July 4 is July 4th, don’t care who they are ,what they are .Forget religion.

  2. WHY are we hearing about this five days afterwards? When did they announce this decision?
    Denigrates our sacred freedoms and disrespects American citizens. Typical King Barry.

  3. Things like this are to be expected with the lying idiot Kerry misrunning the State department and his lying buddy Obumma. Have they put training wheels back on Kerry’ bike yet?

  4. The Islamic calendar is 11 days shorter than the solar year, so events based on the solar year “move” around the calendar every 33 years. This is because the Quran decreed in Surah 9:37 — “The postponement of sacred months is a grossly impious practice, in which the unbelievers are misguided.” Sometimes Muslims must plant or harvest their crops at night during Ramadan when they are not required to fast. Thus, true-to-the-Quran Muslims would never “postpone” or advance a holiday like the Fourth of July to avoid Ramadan — they would accept it where it is as Allah’s will.

  5. f islam; and the president and those who follow the butts of these muzzies to give them whatever they want; you idiots need to wake up; READ THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD PROJECT FOR THE USA AND OTHER COUNTRIES; it is moving along quite well thanks to our idiotic leaders. no such thing as multiculturism; islam NEVER GIVES IN OR COMPROMISES, remember that in your daily activities; keep awake to what is actually going on around you; and do all in your power to stop islam proliferation.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
