President Bush told a dinner honoring American Muslims that his administration has partnered with those practicing Islam around the world to promote tolerance and spread freedom to millions.

"We reject bigotry in all its forms," the president said before sitting down for dinner Wednesday with about 110 guests in the White House State Dining Room.

During the past eight years, the Bush administration has held an Iftaar dinner, a meal served at the end of the day during the holy month of Ramadan when Muslims fast from sunrise to sunset.
