Dinner Date*

It appears that President Obama will host tonight, as he did last year, an iftar, the meal that breaks the fast observed by Muslims during the season of Ramadan. The public purpose of the meal is, no doubt, to convince the world at large and Muslims everywhere that, you see, we're good, tolerant people after all. You shouldn't hate us and needn't fear us. To be fair, Ihear President Bush participated in the meal in a similar fashion during his time in office. (Sigh)

In any thing like a just or sane world, it would be Saudis and Iranians hosting Jewish Seders and Christmas feasts, rather than the other way around. But such is the power of political correctness and Western liberal self-loathing. God help us.

* Traditionally, a date is the first thing to be consumed when the fast is broken.
