Obama Backs NYC Mosque

Obama made his remarks at a Ramadan dinner at the White House:
This evening, the President will continue a White House tradition of hosting an Iftar celebrating Ramadan in the State Dining Room. This is the second Iftar hosted by the President. The Iftar is the meal that breaks the day of fasting, when Muslim families and communities eat together after sunset. See the list of dinner attendees here.
