WASHINGTON, Aug. 11 (Xinhua) — U.S. Muslim POTUS Hussein Obama on Wednesday extended his best wishes to Muslims around the world as Ramadan, the month of Islamic fasting, starts.
“Ramadan is a celebration of a faith known for great diversity and racial equality. And here in the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been part of America and that American Muslims have made extraordinary contributions to our country,” Obama said.
America’s first (and hopefully last) Muslim POTUS did not mention which “extraordinary contributions” American Muslims made……. more>>>
He also said he will host a dinner celebrating Ramadan at the White House later this week.
Since he took office, Obama has been reaching out to the Muslims, in an effort to improve America’s negative image in the Muslim world.
(Not that the “Muslim world” would have a ‘negative image’ in America, God forbid!)
