Barack Obama tells the Middle East: 'Americans are not your enemy'
US President Barack Obama has told the Muslim world that "Americans are not your enemy" and renewed his pledge to travel to make an address in the capital of a major Muslim nation.
In his first interview with Arab television since becoming president, Mr Obama told the al-Arabiya television that his administration would adopt a more comprehensive approach in its relations with the Muslim world.
He also said that Israel and the Palestinians should resume their peace negotiations and he praised Saudi King Abdullah for putting forward an Arab plan for peace in the Middle East.

Hussein doesn’t think we are waging a war against Islamic terror- hence no enemies, all our friends.
His middle name just became “one term”.
All better now.
That little 9/11 misunderstanding — posh!
Weakness and humiliation in front of the world will mark the next four years.
Never, ever, apologize for being attacked.
For some strange reason, the name...Hussein...comes to mind BTW.
Reckon he gave the interview in Arabic? Why not?! He did WIN ya know.
54 million people dumbed, stupidified, pacified and gultified in liberal madrassahs have brought us this.
Oh great, just have the Secret Service shut down the entire site.
“He did WIN ya know”
I will dance in the streets and give out sweets every time this arrogant fool gets his @ss handed to him.
This is beyond belief, well I wonder who exactly is our sworn enemy then? That only has one conceivable answer
The PRESIDENT of the UNITED STATES said this????
Our nation was attacked by MUSLIMS and he is telling the MUSLIM world that we make mistakes, WE have not been perfect??
I am about to lose my friggin mind, we have elected a naive buffoon as POTUS
There are no enemies. We just need to understand those Bush told us were our enemies, a little better. It's all one big misunderstanding.
He is in for a shock isn’t he?
Dang, why didn't someone think of explaining that to them before?
I saw the interview. A lot of word couching and fear on his part of offending or being offended. Obama showed Weakness and it could and probably will come back to haunt him and us!
