US President Barack Obama poses for a photo in front of the Sphinx during a tour of the Great Pyramids of Giza following his landmark speech to the Muslim world. For eight years, US Muslims cringed at the rhetoric coming out of the White House. On Thursday, many here breathed a sigh of relief at the major shift marked by Obama's call for a new beginning with the Muslim world. (AFP/Mandel Ngan)

Hat tip to the daily beast for the Speech outline

Obama speech in front of the Sphinx

Thanks for having me. It is truly an honor to be at this historic place where both Egyptian and Jews worked together to create such historic pieces of world renown art.

Noone in my families' recent history has ever stood before such an awe inspiring sight, although my uncle did help free Buchenwald. It is also rumored that one of my ancestors was in fact a Pharoah and that is why the Sphinx bears an uncanny likeness to me.

I am shocked that I can stand before a crowd of the decendants of the families my own ancestors used to be ruler of.

But that's just America for you. I am proof that in America anyone can suceed. Espeically if you are good looking and read from a
teleprompter.

I know I know there are some who are startled to find out that my ancestors once ruled your ancestors but it is no suprise to me and I wont hold it against you.

A great document starts out We the people and continues on to say that everyone is endowed by Allah with certain rights.

Rights which America in the past has failed to provide to everyone and I am trying to make sure that America is living up to its founding principles.

But both sides have a point to be made. Those who are for torture state they want to keep America safe from attacks by what is in reality only a very very few individuals who by the way also have not given any money to the RNC. Those who are against torture wants everyone in the world to suceed and to live happily ever after in peace, harmony, and joy.
scrutiny, and too little accountability."

(b.) But on the other hand....

Cairo: "But let us be clear: Al Qaeda killed nearly 3,000 people on that day. The victims were innocent men, women and children from America and many other nations who had done nothing to harm anybody."

But traditional battle lines can contain a great many nuanced positions and we need to find common ground. Such as only torturing people who didnt vote for me.

After all, if I can deign to this land my ancestors once ruled and speak to people whose ancestors were but dust upon the feet of my ancestors than I think that we can make anything happen.

But we cant expect those who voted against me to change their mind overnight. Therefore their torture will continue until morale improves.

Wuth all that being said just think. If you were the descendants of Pharoahs than you too could become President of the US. But only after I am dead as I plan to be there for a long long time.

May Allah bless you all.
