I asked a friend of mine who is a blogger in Egypt what he thought of Obama's much-lauded "Muslim world" speech. He said that he he attended the speech, but Obama only met with seven journalists (not he). I told him that it seemed that the speech was universally loved, but he responded:
It was bad... He was playing with Muslim emotions… He is like bush but with a good words.”
I asked him what he wanted to hear and he said “Democracy.”
For Egypt, he said, or for Arabs.
