What in Allah's name are you talking about?

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. 

In whole: Presidents Statement on Eid al-Fitr

It's not Muslim achievements or contributions that I dispute but the qualifier "the very fabric of our nation" and "the core of our democracy".  It's not that I don't recognize Islamic contributions to science, literature, or philosophy to name a few, I just can't seem to tie any of those to the fabric of our nation or the core of our democracy.

What am I missing?
