Via White House website:

As Muslims throughout the United States and around the world celebrate Eid-al-Fitr, Michelle and I extend our warmest wishes to them and their families. This last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy. That is why we stand with people of all faiths, here at home and around the world, to protect and advance their rights to prosper, and we welcome their commitment to giving back to their communities.

On behalf of the Administration, we wish Muslims in the United States and around the world a blessed and joyous celebration. Eid Mubarak.

We were at war with Muslims at the time America was being built. Because they were raping, looting, and killing everyone they happen to come across. Just like they still do today.

Do you refer to "the shores of Tripoli?"

Yes, sort of. They were just one amongst many groups. America was at war with Muslims globally. That is why there is NO Muslim footprint in America. Americans of that era, simply did not tolerate them, and wanted nothing to do with them.
 
They were just too barbaric, even for the privateers and soldiers of the time. And these guys themselves were no boy scouts or saints. But the Muslims just went way of the top of anything that could be considered normal human behavior, even for violent thugs. For a time, they were shot on sight.

This is not the first time he made such a statement.  I'm guessing The Barbary Wars  was not a topic taught in the madrasa he attended, or by his leftist college professors.

Maybe, but back then when an American killed a Muslim, the Muslim had his pecker cut off and was buried inside of a pig, just to make sure that they would go straight to Muzzie Hell itself. This got their attention.
 
You cannot deal with 7th century barabarians by treating them as if they are real civilized people. They will just kill you. That is what they do. That is what they always do. They are animals. And they will kill you if you give them a chance at it.

They did invent the concept of Zero.

A Zero in the White House
A Zero in the State Sec seat.
Zero idea on foreign policy.
Zero idea on domestic policy.
Zero idea how to fix things.


I'd say the Muslims had a distinct impact on the USA.
