Professor Amina Mohsin talks about President Obama’s Upcoming Speech in Egypt  


President Obama is travelling to Egypt on June 4 for what the White House is billing as a major address to Muslims around the world. He is also visiting Saudi Arabia on Tuesday prior to going to Egypt. Analysts think that Obama is taking a positive approach to reach Muslim population round the world an effort that he began in Turkey when he said the United State was not and would never be in War with Islam. His efforts to reach the Muslim world has drawn a number of analyses and interests amongst political commentators and experts as well as amongst common people.

In an exclusive interview with VOA Bangla Service , Professor Amina Mohsin from the Department of International Relations, Dhaka University says that she is optimistic about the fact that Obama's scheduled speech from Egypt will make an impact on common people from the Muslim world. Dr Mohsin says that Muslim World is confronted with multiple problems related to lack of democracy in most of those countries and the increase in terrorism. This has really brought a question on the image of Muslim World. She says that this needs to be put in order and the West should also go for reconciliation with acknowledging the truth .



Professor Amina Mohsin says that a Two-State solution is the only available option for the peace in Middle East and although Benjamin Netenyahoo is apparently reluctant to recognize the Palestinian state he is very much likely to go ahead if he gets assurance against terrorism from the Arab World in general but more importantly from Iran. She said that president Obama , by trying , to open a dialogue with Iran , is trying to neutralize Iran for peace and stability in the region. She added that President Obama's Saudi Arabia trip , before his scheduled departure for Egypt is very significant. While Iran is trying to take the spiritual leadership of Saudi Arabia, Obama works as a power broker. Perhaps, Saudi Arabia needs to play an important political role too which it has not played so far.
