President Obama Speaks to the Muslim World in Cairo

This is an hour long clip so you may need to set some time aside to watch. I hear some Muslims were disappointed that he chose to speak at Cairo and not another city, such as Jakarta, that has a higher Muslim population. Pakistan comes in second in regards to the number of Muslims and there was NO WAY he was about to speak there. We have a long way to go as far as rebuilding the relationship between Muslims and Christians, but speeches like this give me confidence that it can be done. Let's hope that this is the first in a string of attempts to repair that relationship.
