Arab group urges boycott of Obama’s iftar dinner

The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) calls on Muslim invitees to boycott US President Barack Obama’s iftar dinner on Monday, for what they say is the president’s support for Israeli strikes on Gaza, the Washington Post reports.

“We ask that all government iftar invitees stand together on behalf the community and reject the normalization of the continuous breach of our fundamental rights,” a statement from the organization said. “Political engagement is important and having a seat at the table is crucial — but only when that seat is intended to amplify our voice as a community, not tokenize or subdue it.”
