Obama's Cairo University Speech

The whole Muslim world was eagerly waited for Obama’s speech in  Cairo University. Because he is not dumb like Bush rather he is smart.

The entire text version of Obama’s speech at Cairo University can be found in Andrew Sullivan’s Blog. Here is some excerpts from that speech.

This truth transcends nations and peoples – a belief that isn’t new; that isn’t black or white or brown; that isn’t Christian, or Muslim or Jew. It’s a belief that pulsed in the cradle of civilization, and that still beats in the heart of billions. It’s a faith in other people, and it’s what brought me here today…
