He better say that it is time to abandon terrorism as a means to an end -- and that includes terrorism against Israel. He needs to draw a firm line that says we don't want to be your enemies, but if you continue to have no regard for innocent life and the property of others, than we have no choice but to resist you and to do so with deadly force, if necessary. He needs to let them know in no uncertain terms that the U.S. is not Europe. We will not be bullied by wannabe caliphs. But if they wish to coexist in peace, warming to open trade, freedom and democracy, and to come into the 21st Century from the 16th, we will be among the loudest to cheer upon their arrival.

given the euro history of anti semitism and genocide your part of the world isn't in a place to tell us about the 19th century as we remember what your part of the world did in the 20th century, even the UNITED KINGDOM refused entry of Jewish refuges from SNICKLEGRUBERS EUROPE which lead to the mass murder, even after the war the U.K. refused to let the remaining Jewish refuges go to freedom in the land of Israel. Even today it isn't all that safe to be a Jew in europe.

I don't think it will be Cairo. As a dual American Egyptian citizen living in Cairo I would actually be really pissed at Obama if it were Cairo for the reasons mentioned in the article. I suspect it will be Jakarta or Amman.

And so begins the sellout of America by Obama.

Eventually we will be like the U.K., where the rights of minority Islamists supercede the rights of majority Christians, and Sharia law will start to take over.

You've all been warned. Now sit back and watch it happen.

He could save our money and go to Bridgeview. He got lots of campaign money from his fellow muslims there.

What did 3000 people perish in 911 and 4200+ have in Iraq so far, along with 40,000+ casualties. Bringing the target to the enemy has worked great so far Vince.

The U.S. had to take the lead against the genocide in the Balkans. Europe is quick to criticize but slow to police their own decay.

Oh and lets not forget the achievement of handing Afghanistan back to the terrorists. We can't continue this fight alone, so trying to find Muslim allies is a bad thing????

We seem to have created a terrorist training ground in Iraq in order to prevent attacks on our homeland. The terrorists have killed more americans, learned how to fight our military more effectively, and received more support, not less, in the Arab world. I don't find that an achievement. So I don't believe trying a different approach is a bad thing.
