Al-Khatahtbeh Reaffirms ADC’s Position on
2014 Government Iftars in The Huffington Post
Washington, DC | www.adc.org | July 24, 2014 – The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee’s Media Relations Specialist Amani Al-Khatahtbeh reaffirms the organization’s position on this year’s government iftars in a blog on The Huffington Post.
In light of recent publications justifying attendance of the 2014 White House Iftar, Al-Khatahtbeh writes, “I respect and reaffirm the desire of Muslim- and Arab-Americans to engage in a productive dialogue with the government, but I also recognize that an iftar is not the venue for such dialogues to take place.”
Al-Khatahtbeh voices ADC’s concerns with President Obama’s remarks in support of Israel’s massacre in Gaza as well as his invitation to Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer to attend the event. “President Obama used a religious event to make a political statement — one that was simultaneously an insult to the entire Muslim- and Arab-American community,” she writes.
