I've Been Thinking:
The word is that during Obama's June trip to Europe he will stop in the Middle East.
We already knew that the president was going to pass through Israel and meet with Palestinian leadership.
Now the inside word is that he will also visit Egypt and from there he will deliver his much anticipated speech about new US relations with the Muslim world.
This speech will be the Obama vision of a new US/Muslim nexus.
He will lay out his perspective for the future and delineate what it means to work together.
I could write the speech for him today.
There is very little that will change between now and then. It will not be a speech about immediate events, it will be about tone and about the past. Most importantly this speech will be about the future.
Obama will condemn past American administrations.
He will emphasize the importance of Islam. He will embrace Islam for being a world leader in culture and civilization. He will underscore the need for everyone to confront extremism. He will assert the need to put down the terrorists and the need to stand up against the murder of innocent people. He will say that this is not about politics, that it is about doing what God demands. He will clearly explain that a better world requires us to work together.
Barack Obama will be very well received.
The masses will be happy but skeptical of him and of his message.
The extremists will not be convinced.
The rest of us will be left wait and watch and determine the real impact of his words.
