Obama to host Ramadan meal
By Elise Viebeck - 08/13/10 08:36 AM ET

President Obama will host an iftar — the special evening meal observed during Ramadan — on Friday night in the White House dining room.

Obama participated in a similar gathering last year.

Celebrations like iftar dinners "remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam's role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings," Obama wrote in a statement Wednesday.

"Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality ... a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country."

The dinner comes amid a growing controversy over the proposed construction of an Islamic cultural center in downtown Manhattan, near the site of the World Trade Center. A CNN poll released Wednesday found that 68 percent of the public opposes the project.

Meanwhile, the White House — which has made great efforts to reach out to the Muslim community — has been silent on the issue.

"This is rightly a matter for New York City and the local community to decide," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs told reporters on Aug. 3.

Ramadan began on Wednesday and will end around Sept. 10.

Celebrations like iftar dinners "remind us of the principles that we hold in common, and Islam's role in advancing justice, progress, tolerance and the dignity of all human beings," Obama wrote in a statement Wednesday. Is this the same religion that in Arab Countries advances justice with honor killings, shows progress with relegating women to 3rd class (maybe lower) citizenship, demonstrates tolerance and dignity of all human beings by killing Christians in their country and calling for the elimination of Isreal and all Jewish populations elsewhere. This is the kind of truths we all have seen as commonplace utterings from King Obama's lips where he personally can't tell when he speaks the truth or shovels the dung on the rest of us stupid people.

If Obummer wanted to host such a meal in his own home, at his own expense, it would not matter. The fact that he's a liar and a thief is the problem, not the kind of dinner he gives.

 
Let's get our priorities straight here.

Look at this picture and Tell the World just how STUPID AMERICANS ARE....What in hell is it going to take for you DUMB ASSES to get the message?

Sleep another day you so called "Home of the Brave",'Land of the Free"...A good example of just how corrupt you people are,and how you work together like McCain,and Hayworth,as a team...you people are sooooo stupid.If "Hayworth" was an honest man the would ask Juan some serious question...like the "Navajo",the "POW" papers...unless Hayworth and McCain have some kind of Honor among Thief`s agreement going on...he could eliminate McCain with some of these questions..but he don`t ask them...so he`s on Juan`s side working to a bitter end for America....A Disk Jockey    ha ha ha ha   can`t you do any better then that?
