In a decisive break with eight years of Bush and Cheney, Obama told the Turkish Parliment that he seeks partnership with the Muslim world, and is not at war with them. This is real Change with a capital 'C', and is a decidedly Christian stance (seeking to understand and aid the enemy). It is also a shrewdness: How to disarm the enemy? Be his friend.
Declaring that a bond should be forged between Americans and Muslims and that this bond would be the surest way to rid the world of fringe elements is sound ideology. It is progressive pragmatism; it works. Of course, it does not flatter the petty egoists who love their "war on terror". But it is an inconvenient truth.
