Rewriting History: Obama Spreads False Claim That Thomas Jefferson Hosted First Ramadan Iftar Dinner at White House

“The State Department retails the PC myth in this article, ‘Thomas Jefferson’s Iftar,’ July 29. Nor is this the first time this falsehood has gone around: the State announcement quotes Barack Obama saying last year: ‘Ramadan is a reminder that Islam has always been a part of America. The first Muslim ambassador to the United States, from Tunisia, was hosted by President Jefferson, who arranged a sunset dinner for his guest because it was Ramadan — making it the first known iftar at the White House, more than 200 years ago.’

    The first article illustrates what I said in a comment elsewhere–Islam spreads itself by violence, fear and ‘respect’, i.e., you ‘respect’ me or I’ll whack you. The first White House Iftar dinner, which apparently has been a regular occurrence ever since, was in 2001 following 9/11.
