Obama din­ner marks Ramadan

Los Angeles Times - - THE NATION -

Pres­i­dent Obama said Amer­i­cans stand united in re­ject­ing the tar­get­ing of any re­li­gious or eth­nic group, as he marked Is­lam’s holy month of Ramadan.

Obama opened the White House to Mus­lim Amer­i­cans for a tra­di­tional if­tar din­ner, which fol­lows daily fast­ing from dawn to sunset. Ramadan ends with the Is­lamic hol­i­day of Eid al- Fitr.

“We af­firm that what­ever our faith, we’re all one fam­ily,” Obama said at the East Room din­ner at­tended by about 40 mem­bers of the diplo­matic com­mu­nity and a few mem­bers of Congress.
