Obama decries anti-Muslim discrimination
by Jordan Fabian
President Obama on Thursday bemoaned discrimination faced by Muslim Americans, calling on people in the U.S. to practice tolerance toward their fellow citizens.
"Let's be clear: Muslim Americans are as patriotic, as integrated, as American as any other member of the American family," Obama said during a White House reception celebrating Eid al-Fitr, the Islamic holiday that marks the end of Ramadan.
Obama urged people around the country to ensure that Muslim Americans do not feel as if they're "second-class citizens."
