"My job is to communicate the fact that the United States has a stake in the well-being of the Muslim world, that the language we use has to be a language of respect," Obama said in a January interview with Al-Arabiya television network. "I have Muslim members of my family. I have lived in Muslim countries."
In a speech to the Turkish Parliament, Obama tried to make a clean break from the rhetoric of the Bush era.
"So let me say this as clearly as I can: The United States is not, and will never be, at war with Islam," he said.
"There are misapprehensions about the West on the part of the Muslim world. And, obviously, there are some big misapprehensions about the Muslim world when it comes to those of us in the West," Obama said in a recent interview with the BBC. "And it is my firm belief that no one speech is going to solve every problem. There are no silver bullets. There are very real policy issues that have to be worked through that are difficult."
All you have to do is bow to me.

To hell with Muslim opinion. Fix our own ship first, and that way the Chinese STUDENTS won't be laughing at out Treasury Secretary when he starts spouting utter BS that any student of economics knows are lies.
The Chinese students know more than our own students. God, that's pitiful.
