Obama’s speech in Cairo

At least some good words from Obama in his recent speech in Cairo:

Quoting the region’s three holy books, the Holy Quran, the Torah and the Bible, he evoked a future of ‘mutual interest and mutual respect,’ examining all sources of tension between America and the Muslim world.

‘America and Islam are not exclusive and need not be in competition — in fact, they overlap and share several principles,’ he said.

He said extremists have exploited the denied rights of Muslims, adding that change cannot happen overnight.

However, the interests that the Muslims and the United States seek are more powerful and shared than the differences that exist between us, Obama said.

Islam is so clearly a part of America that there is a mosque in every state, he said, adding that nearly seven million Muslims are living in the United States.

‘America is not and will never be at war with Islam,’ he said.
