President Obama’s highly anticipated speech Thursday morning in Cairo has received a variety of responses from communities in the Middle East.
Obama began his speech with the Arabic greeting “As-Salamu Alaykum” and attempted to balance competing interests throughout the region in his address. How successful he was at doing that remains to be seen.
But all of this preparation for the big Mideast speech seems to have put the White House in “America <3 Muslims” mode. In the run-up to the speech, the White House thought it would “share with you a few stories of Muslim Americans who are proudly serving the nation in the federal government.”
