Embedded video from CNN Video

Editor-in-chief Shahed Amanullah discusses the ramifications of Barack Obama’s speech in Cairo on CNN along with fellow Muslim Americans Nura Sedique and Dr. Farah Khan on Thursday, June 4th.

According to Shahed, Obama “accomplished exactly what he needed to accomplish” with his speech in Cairo, Egypt. “He was really pressing for people to say in public what they say in private. Everybody knows what the solutions to a lot of these problems are and I think there is vast agreement on what they are going to be. But nobody really talks about it and puts the cards on the table,” said Amanullah, of Austin, Texas.

Zahed Amanullah is associate editor of altmuslim. He is based in London, England.
