CAIRO --- Saying the United States and Muslims around the world needed a "new beginning," President Barack Obama delivered a groundbreaking speech Thursday at Cairo University. It marked the first time a U.S. president visited the Arab Middle East before Israel.

"We meet at a time of tension between the United States and Muslims around the world -- tension rooted in historical forces that go beyond any current policy debate," the U.S. president said in his much-anticipated address. "I have come here to seek a new beginning between the United States and Muslims around the world, one based upon mutual interest and mutual respect... America and Islam are not exclusive, and need not be in competition."
