SAYLORSBURG — Folks in one part of Monroe County feasted to celebrate the end of Ramadan.

The Iftar dinner, which means “breakfast’ in Arabic, was hosted at the Golden Generation Retreat and Worship Center in Saylorsburg.

Ramadan is an Islamic holy month observed by Muslims worldwide by a month-long fast.

This year, Ramadan began on May 26th and will end Sunday at midnight.

Iftar is the evening meal during which the faithful break their fast at sunset together as a community.

    This holy month didnt stop all those terrorists. When will the muslim community start protesting these acts of violence instead of remaining silent?

        If you are “christian” (having accepting JC as your saviour) then by definition *all* of your acts are “in the name of jesus.” Sooooo.. where do you want to begin? — the numbers are in the hundreds of millions. Let me clear about one thing: All religions are equally dangerous as they put the “words” of imaginary beings above logic and reason.

        Words of imaginary beings. You mean like, don’t kill other people? Honoring your parents? Love your neighbor? Treat others as you would be treated? Respect your elders? Yeah, you’re right – these instructions are old, outdated, and dangerous. They should be done away with, we would be a lot better off without them. Some day you will meet your so-called imaginary being – he’ll have some questions for you. Make sure you use logic and reason.

        If “the numbers are in the hundreds of millions”, then why haven’t you provided at least one example? Trying to make excuses for islam, the PROVEN most violent religion (actually it’s a theocracy) in the written history of mankind via equivocation is a pathetic joke, just like your argument is. I suppose you’ll bring up the Crusades, which was an armed, defensive response to almost 500 years of muslim aggression and conquest of Christian countries.

    Such an odd thing…. people who are silent as radical terrorists strike, as female genital mutilation is practiced, as Gays are persecuted, and as women’s rights are oppressed…. and yet, the press fawns all over them. Well, at least they aren’t those evil Christians, right?

      yes—- i don’t understand it——- they are brutal savages when it comes to the treatment of gays and women, yet are liberal press can’t kiss up enough

        When they outbreed any population of a host country they’ll treat any non-muslim that way. Look up the term “hijrah”.

    Ah, the religion of peace, coming out of their camp down the road, where police aren’t allowed.

      • Silverfish Imperetrix

        People that make pierogis don’t kill other people, that’s why. This year’s worldwide death total from ramalamadingdong ‘festivities’ is 1,627.
