I have just been reading what Obama had to say to the Muslim world via his keynote speech in Cairo. I have also been watching some of the Israeli and Palistinian and fundamentalist Christian reactions. You can read the full transcript of Obama’s speech and view some video highlights here. Photos here. I hope it is a new beginning, but somehow I think reconciliation is going to take more than speeches don’t you? I agree violence is not the answer, I just wonder how Obama plans to model that. Overall though, I see this Obama Cairo speech as a constructive step. So I ask, what stood out for you? What bits got you thinking?
