Ramadan Tent Dinner At Payrow Plaza


As the sun sank into the horizon, a group of hungry people began eating dinner inside a tent pitched at Payrow Plaza. Unlike most Musikfest revelers, this group is observing Ramadan, a month of fasting and prayers for Muslims around the world. The Lehigh Dialogue Center and Peace Islands Institute offered a meal, completely free of charge, to anyone interested in interfaith and intercultural dialogue. Another meal will be offered tonight.

Among those I saw at last night's meal was Lehigh County Judge Edward Reibman.

Ramadan ends on July 17.

Alahu Akbar!

You are an infidel Bernie and the way you behaved on the latest WFMZ show shows you are an enemy of Islam with a big mouth not only for gluttonous eating but barbarous comments about Riswan and his faith.

Give Bernie a break. He learned from a master, Ron Angle.

I'm heartened to see moderate Muslim voices. I wish they'd speak out clearly and forcefully against the subjugation of women, rapes, clitorodectomies, honor killings, Muslim slavery, etc. Attempting to show us they're peaceful and loving falls a bit flat when they maintain their silence on these horrors.

Interfaith dialogue? That;s fantastic. How about rational, science based dialogue absent all of this make believe nonsense about gods, an after life, and fancy miracles? Think and stop being like a child who believes in Santa.

I love people like 7:36 who think that moderate Muslims not speaking out every time some radical nutcase does something in the name of Islam makes them complicit. I don't see conservatives crying out for every Christian leader to apologize when some asshole white Christian does something crazy.

I could never be one of them, I have to feed my face all day long and prefer my women naked vs covered in garb.

I am not going to allow anyone to post generalizations unless he or she has the courage to identify themselves so we all know who is a BIGOT.

Somebody should not have allowed you to steal from clients and make excuses for your evil actions. You're a special brand of asshole, asshole.
