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.

A muslim friend of mine told me that when they break fast during Ramadan they're not really supposed to overly indulge. She said they usually just have a little rice and some water, maybe a few vegatables.

I invited her to go to the buffet with us. Just messing with her. She has a good humor.

Hope they didn't get too fancy with the meal.

That and they're crabby because they're hungry. I wouldn't engage or provoke at this time. :D

let's just agree that it'd better if a president never gets involved in religion in an official capacity.

If Islam were truly a religion that would be acceptable. But the Constitution guarantees us the freedom of religion. That in itself says the President can practice what ever religion he subscribes to, just as the rest of us have the right.

Islam is more of a political machine. Their precepts are not in accordance with virtually every religion in the world, religion is just a term they use to obfuscate the reality of what their desire is, the domination of the whole globe and to impress their laws on every person on the earth.

no, what i said was IN AN OFFICIAL CAPACITY the president should just avoid all things pertaining to religion. if he wants to go light candles at the catholic church or go bow in a mosque, whatever. but while he is doing things on my dime, stay away from religion.

how the hell is Islam more of a political machine than xtianity? hell, the entire GOP is run by fundamentalist bigots. you don't think that every evangelical xtian would love the opportunity to dominate the globe and impress their laws and beliefs on every person on earth? really?

Got a spelling problem?

Christianity does not kill you if you reject their offers. Islam considers you an infidel if you reject Islam. Christianity does not interfere with the laws of the land in which you live, it says render unto Caesar what is Caesar's. What I get from that is that you pay your taxes of the country in which you live and you are under the laws of that country, or land if you would. Islam does not follow the same precedent.

It's not just your dime, it's all of our dimes and I don't mind if it's shared across the board.
