>Speech’s reactions: impressive


Washington, DC.- President Obama gave yesterday in Cairo one of his most impressive speech since he took the oath. Listed below is a sample of the reaction to it:

TIME’s Scott McLeod: “President Obama’s Speech In Cairo Today Is The Most Important Address Ever Given By An American Leader About The Middle East…He Didn’t Arrive Or Depart As A Prophet, But For An American President Treading Into Territory Inhospitable To U.S. Policies, He Won Some New Adherents.”
Hisham Melhelm, Washington Bureau Chief Of Al-Arabiya TV: “On The Whole, He Was Excellent. And I Think People Needed To Hear What The President Articulated Forcefully And Eloquently.”

AP: Obama’s Approach Was Sweeping And Evenhanded Throughout The Speech. “

Newsweek: “Barack Obama’s Long Awaited Speech To The Muslim World Delivered On The Promises Of His Advisers. It Was Neither Dramatic Nor Filled With Romantic Pledges.”

Former U.S. Ambassador To Israel Martin Indyk: “The Speech Represented A Dramatic And Persuasive American Manifesto For A New Relationship With The Muslim World. President Obama Stood His Ground On American Values And Interests But Presented Them In A Package That Should Be Attractive To His Muslim Audience.”

Bruce Riedel: “The President Is Right To Take On The Enemies Narrative As That Is Key To Its Defeat.”

George Mason Prof. Michael Fauntroy: Obama’s Speech “Was An Outstanding First Step In Attempting To Bridge The Gulf That Exists Between The U.S. And Muslims Around The World.”

Harvard Prof. Joseph Nye: The Speech Was “A Great Investment In Our Soft Power…I Am Reminded Of JFK And Reagan’s Capacity To Project American Ideals.

Princeton Prof. Melissa Harris-Lacewell: Obama’s Speech “Offered A Sweeping Vision Of America, Of The World, And Of The Possibilities For Equality

Harvard Prof. Stephen Walt: Obama’s “Willingness To Confront A Set Of Complex And Challenging Issues Head-On And To Speak Plainly And Eloquently Was Remarkable.”

Spelman History Professor Jelani Cobb: “This May Well Be The Most Important Foreign Policy Speech Of The Post-Cold War Era.”

Michael Crowley Called Obama’s Address In Cairo: “His Most Elegant Speech Yet…To See Him Unfold His Biography, To Cut Such An Unfamiliar Profile On The World Stage, Is To Appreciate How Much America Will Benefit From Presenting This New Face to The World.”

Director Of The Israeli Government Press Office: “I Don’t Think There’s Anything We Disagree With Here.”
