President Obama late Thursday celebrated Ramadan with a traditional dinner in the State Dining Room, saying that throughout the nation's history, “Islam has contributed to the character of our country.”

“Every day, Muslim-Americans are helping to shape the way that we think and the way that we work and the way that we do business," he said. "And that’s the spirit that we celebrate tonight — the dreamers, the creators whose ideas are pioneering new industries, creating new jobs and unleashing new opportunities for all of us.”

From "Obama: ‘Throughout Our History, Islam Has Contributed to the Character of Our Country’" by Bridget Johnson, PJ Media 7/26/13

President Obama welcomed dozens of ambassadors and a handful of lawmakers to last night’s iftar dinner at the White House to break the day’s Ramadan fast by saying “throughout our history, Islam has contributed to the character of our country.”

Members of Congress invited included Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.) and Reps. André Carson (D-Ind.), John Dingell (D-Mich.), Keith Ellison (D-Minn.), Eliot Engel (D-N.Y.) and Dan Kildee (D-Mich.). Carson and Ellison are the two Muslims in Congress.

“When I look around the room tonight, beyond the communities you represent, I see all the profound good that’s been accomplished. So all of us are seeing the results of your good work — the opportunities to create for your colleagues and your communities and for our country. So I want to thank you for what you do, and for reminding us that our nation is stronger and more successful when we harness the talents of all Americans — no matter where we come from, or what we look like, what our last names are, or how we pray.”
