A veiled Muslim woman at the US White House

Dalia Mogahed is a member of the advisory panel for Obama 


Religiously veiled, Dalia Mogahed is indeed the first American Muslim of Arab descent to enter the White House every morning with an Islamic headscarf to advise a United States President.

Expressing her joy, Dalia Mogahed said she is "proud to be the first Muslim to enter the White House". She is now a full member of the advisory panel of religions, known as the Faith Based and Neighbourhood Partnerships. The committee is composed of 25 other people from different faiths.

She is senior analyst and executive director of the Gallup Center for Muslim Studies. The young woman commands respect by virtue of her talent, which she generously exposes in the pages of the Gallup Institute’s publication.

Her book: Who speaks for Islam, re-edited and published by the prestigious Harvard University’s Harvard International Review, appears to have caught President Obama’s eye.

According to the open minded and talented Dalia Mogahed, "My job is to assist the President of the United States to better understand Muslims beyond the distorting prism of violence".
