    Obama in good standing as Ramadan begins

    Egyptian fruit sellers name best dates in tribute to U.S. president

    updated 1:48 p.m. MT, Fri., Aug 21, 2009

    CAIRO - For the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, Egyptian fruit sellers have named their best dates of the year after President Barack Obama in a sweet tribute to the American leader for his outreach to the Muslim world.

    Dates are a traditional food for Ramadan — which begins Saturday in most of the Islamic world — since the Prophet Muhammad is said to have used them to break the month's sunrise-to-sunset fast each evening.

    During the lunar month of Ramadan, observant Muslims refrain from eating, drinking, smoking and sex from sunrise to sunset. It is believed that God began revealing the Quran to Muhammad during Ramadan, and the faithful are supposed to spend the month in religious reflection, prayer and remembrance of the poor.

    peace...

    Yeah, I fail to see how someone would actually get paid for such an irrelevant news story or why someone would take the time to investigate the practices of Egyptian fruit sellers.

    We should all be glad that Obama has reached out to parts of the Islamic world.

    Dialogue and mutual understanding can go along way toward healing the past administrations blunders.
