Passover is a Jewish holiday that recalls the bondage of the Jewish people in Egypt and the miracle of the Exodus. To celebrate the occasion this year Barack Obama released a statement praising the Muslim Spring in the Middle East.
Via Israel Survival Updates and Arutz Sheva:
Passover recalls the bondage and suffering of Jews in Egypt and the miracle of the Exodus, but U.S. President Barack Obama says its message is reflected in Muslim uprisings.
In his annual message, prior to his third straight participation in the Passover Seder, President Obama stated, “The story of Passover…instructs each generation to remember its past, while appreciating the beauty of freedom and the responsibility it entails. This year that ancient instruction is reflected in the daily headlines as we see modern stories of social transformation and liberation unfolding in the Middle East and North Africa.”
