Western analysts react to Egyptian president's speech with skepticism but hope
WASHINGTON – It’s been four weeks since Egyptian President Abdel al-Fattah delivered his fiery speech to Islamic clerics at Al-Azhar University calling for a “revolution” in the faith to change its reputation as a violent religion at war with the world. What’s been the reaction in the Muslim world since? Deafening silence.
A request by WND for reaction from Muslim organizations in the United States, including the Islamic Society of North America and the Muslim Student Association, was met with nearly total silence. In the case of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, or CAIR, the spokesman hung up when asked for comment.
