Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

I think these 2 quotes from the Jakarta Post, from August 2010 show that Pres. Obama is a practicing Muslim:

"The president [Obama] made his remarks at an Iftar dinner at the White House celebrating the beginning of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan."

"Obama during a breaking of the fast with Muslim leaders at the White House on Friday defended the right of Muslims to build mosques."
