President Sends Ramadan Greetings To Muslims In U.S. and Around the World

Yesterday the White House released a statement (full text) extending Ramadan greetings from the President and First Lady to Muslim communities in the U.S. and around the world. Ramadan begins today.  The President said in part:
In the United States, Ramadan is a reminder that millions of Muslim Americans enrich our nation each day—serving in our government, leading scientific breakthroughs, generating jobs and caring for our neighbors in need.  I have been honored to host an iftar dinner at the White House each of the past four years, and this year I look forward to welcoming Muslim Americans who are contributing to our country as entrepreneurs, activists and artists.
