Obama dinner marks Ramadan
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.
