    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."

    Looks like he also held passover at the White House as well, so this is just political pandering rather than insight.
