Obama is 1st American President to give interview directly to Muslim world. Video: Al-Arabiaya TV.

Via on Jan 26, 2009

It’s a whole new world when the Muslim world sees America represented with intelligence, knowledge, strength and straightforwardness.

Saw snippets of the below video of Obama on Al-Arabiya on CNN tonight. Worth a watch as our new President navigates the tough history and politics of the issues surrounding Israelis, Palestinians and the rest of the Middle East.

    Way to be on top of this, Way. I saw the same program and am so thrilled about his desire to build a bridge and heal the wounds of the “War on Terror”

    Waylon….thanks for jumping on this…getting a good youTube of the interview…the one I got had some Obama business kisch thrown in at the front. I am just so pleased to see our new President at work this week. It is stunning, but truly gratifying to see a true leader at work…after so many years in the desert of political leadership we have dragged through the last 8 years.
