Abdullah brothers head to White House
The two will attend the annual Iftar Dinner on Wednesday night celebrating the Islamic holy month of Ramadan.
Arizona's Abdullah says he was stunned and initially thought the invitation was a fake. He called it a "humbling experience" and looked forward to shaking the president's hand.
He called Obama "a stand-up guy" who is "for equality, regardless of ethnicity, religious background or class."
Abdullah will be in Oakland in time for Arizona's preseason opener Thursday night against the Raiders.
