An Email From Mohamed
I just received this brief email from a man through my “contact me” page who identified himself only as “Mohamed” and I am posting it here because I think it’s important. For the record, I did write him back to ensure that he realized this was not the official site of the Secretary of State, but rather a personal blog.
Remember, while those of us who live in the U.S. and the West debate the merits (or not) of Obama’s speech, perhaps we should stop and consider how actual people in the streets of the West Bank, Jedda and Manama feel about the speech.
I hope Obama team is able to read Arab tweets specially Bahraini after the speech today to realize to what extent we have lost confidence in him and in America.
I hope so too.
