KEY POINTS From a Presidential Greeting, November 5, 2002
Ramadan is a time for fasting, prayer, worship, and
contemplation. Muslims observe this month by renewing their dedication
to caring for those in need, doing good deeds, and strengthening family
and community ties.
Islam is a peace-loving faith practiced by
more than one billion people, including millions of American Muslims.
The United States is grateful for the friendship and support of
many Muslim Nations that are vital partners in the global coalition to
fight against terrorism.
America remains committed to freedom,
justice, and opportunity for all people and we continue to work
together for a future of peace, tolerance, and understanding.
