WASHINGTON President Barack Obama will Friday join an evening meal to break the daily fast observed by Muslims during the holy month of Ramadan, the White House said.
The hosting of Iftar will be held in a dining room at the White House, his spokesman said.
Obama participated in a traditional Ramadan meal in September 2009, where he praised Islam as an integral part of the United States.

Pentagon Denies Flyover of Patriotic God and Country Rally in Nampa Idaho Because of its Christian Content
July 4, 2009
NAMPA, ID (MetroCatholic) This marks the first time in the 42 year history of the event that a flyover request was denied by the Pentagon.
The event is held ever year to honor the spiritual foundations of our country with a special emphasis on the men and women who serve in the armed forces.
In past years, the God and Country Rally has focused on honoring and paying tribute to those veterans who have served our nation in the past and those who are currently on active duty.
At the rally this year, all five branches of the armed services were featured with over 60 new recruits sworn into the military at the event.
After a phone conversation and an e-mail response from the Pentagon, Rally Director Patti Syme says they were denied the request for a flyover this year because of the Christian nature of the event.
The e-mail from the Pentagon can be seen here.
The Christian Defense Coalition says this is a slap in the face to all those who have proudly served or are currently on active duty in the armed services.
The group is concerned that this new policy may indicate an open hostility toward public expressions of faith by the Obama Administration.
There. Fixed it.
Ramadan is when Muslims go nuts starving themselves during the day and pigging out at sundown. In fact they gain weight during Ramadan due to the starvation/pigout cycle they go through for 30 days
It is not a holy month. It is a loony month with tempers on edge during the day time especially the cigarette smokers who are supposed to abstain during daylight hours
Guest list, please
does anyone know if he ever hosts a Sedar at the WH???
what do you expect from a Muzzie? next the white house will have a minaret installed on it so the muzzie can pray to the east 5 times a day and call out allah akubar. he never converted to christianity - just a fake. like everything else about the muzzie piece of crap
Just you watch!!! You know for sure it's coming. Oh boy, look out 0!
Do I need < /sarcasm >?
It’s going to be tough squeezing this in between his trip to Florida and his vacation in New England.
It’s not easy squeezing all of his vacations into his schedule.
A lie from 0bama. Muslims have been in America only in the last 30-40 years or so. We had loony black Muslims before that since 1920 or so but its a joke to count them. They aren't real Muslims
Any Muslims fight in the Civil War or Revolutionary war? How about World War one and Two? The answer is no
Last year’s list.
Ramadan Dinner at the White House: The Guest List
Updated 7:38 p.m.
By Michael A. Fletcher
President Obama will host a White House dinner Tuesday night celebrating Ramadan, the Muslim holy month during which the faithful fast from dawn to sunset each day.
Obama will be joined at the dinner by three Cabinet members, five members of Congress, nearly two dozen foreign diplomats, and 33 community leaders. Among the invited diplomats are the Israeli ambassador and the chief of mission for the Palestinian Liberation Organization, as well as the Indian and Pakistani ambassadors to the United States.
Asked about the unusual step of inviting the Israeli ambassador to the dinner, the White House described it as a small part of the event. “Tonight was an opportunity to continue the tradition of hosting iftars at the White House, while celebrating Muslim Americans, and tonight’s dinner is made up of a diverse group of individuals from business leaders to members of the US military,” White House spokesman Thomas Vietor said. “Additionally, we thought it was an opportunity to reach out to ambassadors of nations with sizable Muslim populations, including the ambassadors of France, the [United Kingdom], India, and Israel.”
Obama intends to highlight one story in particular: that of Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir, a young woman who broke high school basketball records in Massachusetts before heading to the University of Memphis — while wearing a traditional hijab.
Obama, who held an intimate Passover Seder at the White House in April, will host the dinner beginning at 8 p.m. tonight. Ramadan, which started on Aug. 22, will end on Sept. 20.
On Aug. 21, the president released a Ramadan video message to Muslims around the world.

Thanks but the exact traditions of whatever religion are not my concern. It is the fact that Obama stumps out Christianity (the minority downtrodden religion of this country) under SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE; yet he can celebrate his religion on OUR DIME?
Obama should celebrate this in his home in Chicago privately since he denounced GOD AND COUNTRY at the white house.
He can’t have it both ways. He can’t have his prayer rug and bow on it too on our dime!
Someone send pork to Obama in memory of his pork spending bills.
GO TO GOOGLE type Obama, then click NEWS. You will not believe how many looney bills he has passed while we were sleeping.
I seriously doubt it. He wanted the nativity set removed from the WH at Christmas but Rahmie or someone told him his polls may go down.
I want to know what he is doing this afternoon??
See his calendar for today on the right hand side. Is he playing golf, or taking a snooze, or what??
**Islam had no influence on the origins and development of the United States. It contributed nothing to early American political culture, art, literature, music or any other aspect of the early nation.**
Who is writing the stuff this usurper reads?
will rahmbo and axelrod join him for some sheeps’ eyes? Pass the platter- right hands only please.
How about a toast to Iran’s nuclear cooperation with Russia? Mazel tov!
oh c’mon, let’s be fair.
he hosts a passover seder, along with a chance to lecture Israel about peace. Yom Kippur so congress has a long weekend holiday. St Patrick’s day with green beer fountains. Then there is the WH holiday tree with Mao ornaments and the “easter egg roll”. What more could religious people ask for?
When the US Marines hit the shores of Tripoli, did they pause to celebrate ramadan?
Thanks for list. I bet there are some “watch list” folks on there. What about Farakan? Rev. Wright? Muhammad Ali? Ayers?
And this is why the muslim family went partying last week. They had to get it all out so they can sacrifice for Ramadan. Just more proof for those with open minds.
Hasn’t he cleared his afternoon schedule since Ramadan started?
He doesn’t celebrate Christmas yet celebrates ramalamadingdong. How can anyone still believe he’s not a muslim.

I don’t think they have green beer fountains on St Paddys day :)
But the nativity set at Christmas is covered with Obama’s prayer rug
His middle name is Hussein for a reason, people. We've never had a more Islam friendly government - ever. In fact, it's more like a surrender than a friendship.
Look around. NASA is an Islam outreach program. The State dept. is sending the 9/11 mosque owner overseas (on our dime) to collect funds to pay for the NYC abomination! Public schools now have to remove all American history, the constitution, and American economics from their classrooms. Even the banks, if you open your eyes, have been put under sharia law by the new banking bill. Under Oboma. the tax payers have paid a fortune to build new Muslim schools, mosques, and community outreach programs. The public schools have been converted to meet the needs of the Islamic religion (but Christianity is not allowed in any form).
Look around you, for gosh sakes. Oboma has surrendered the U.S. to Islam. Hellooooo!
I know past Presidents have hosted various religions suck up GET MONEY EVENTS. This is not the point.
Bush did not scream separation of Church and State and deny God and Country flyover of taxpayers money like Obama did.
This is taxpayer money in OUR White House.
Bush used taxpayer money on all religious protocol and affairs.
Obama picked his religion only.
Gosh, I’d hate to see a bunch of Islamists getting all testy.
Bush Courts Muslims with Ramadan Dinner, Messages
Posted on Thursday, November 07, 2002 12:44:12 PM by RCW2001
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Thirteen months after the U.S.-led military campaign began in Afghanistan and on the eve of a U.N. vote on a tough resolution to disarm Iraq, President Bush is planning to mark the Muslim holy month of Ramadan with Islamic leaders at the White House.
Diplomats and community leaders have been invited to the State Dining Room on Thursday evening to share the traditional Iftaar meal, which ends each day of fasting.
The event is just one of several ways in which the Bush administration will mark Ramadan in an effort to reach out to Muslims in America and throughout the world.
Bush Praises Islam at White House Ramadan Dinner

U.S. President George W. Bush met with Muslim leaders living in the United States and a group of diplomatic representatives from Muslim countries on Tuesday for a Ramadan fast-breaking dinner, known as iftar, at the White House.
Bush started his iftar speech with the traditional Ramadan greeting of Ramadan Karim when he praised Islam as a religion that brought hope and peace to more than a billion people worldwide.
Different day, same stuff, same beast, beast has two heads - democrat and republican head.
I'll bring a side...
It's a shame we have to wish away 2 years of our lives in hopeful anticipation that his reign will end. And THEN, spend most, if not all, of the remainder of our lives trying to clean up the mess he (and his minions) have created.
Can’t find a church to go to in almost two years, but manages to observe Ramadan every year? Hmmm...
Remember the news article before he was elected that the MSM made sure stayed quiet that Obama recited some muslim call to prayer in perfect Arabic?
I am shocked Obama did not give this ramadan message in perfect arabic. (I could only stomache watching a minute of it though...)
Aren’t muslims not supposed to eat with infidels?
