We are a nation of Christians and Muslims, Jews and Hindus, and
nonbelievers. We are shaped by every language and culture, drawn from
every end of this Earth.
And because we have tasted the bitter
swill of civil war and segregation and emerged from that dark chapter
stronger and more united, we cannot help but believe that the old
hatreds shall someday pass; that the lines of tribe shall soon
dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall
reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new
era of peace.
To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect.
those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict or blame their
society’s ills on the West, know that your people will judge you on
what you can build, not what you destroy.
To those who cling to
power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know
that you are on the wrong side of history, but that we will extend a
hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.
