Obama Grants Al Arabiya TV Excluxive Interview

Al Arabiya Interview, Part 1

Obama discusses peace and mutual respect in this interview aired last night on Al Arabiya Muslim TV. Yet another powerful move by Obama to show the Arab world we are serious about a solution to the conflict in Palestine and Israel.

Obama discusses a new era of mutual respect and how the region is interrelated. This sends a message to Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, and Iran to name a few, that he is indeed interested in listening.

As a mattter of fact, he says in his interview that he has advised his ME envoy, George Mithcell, to listen and come back with a report on what was said. Mitchell leaves today to talk with leaders in Egypt, Palestine, and Israel.
