Clinton Addresses Arab Americans

The Arab American News, News Report, Posted: Jun 22, 2009

WASHINGTON,D.C.-Former U.S. president Bill Clinton addressed Arab Americans from across the country last weekend at the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee national convention, reports The Arab American News. In his keynote speech, Clinton addressed issues of identity, global interdependence and the future of the United States and the world. "We live in an interdependent world, where there is a lot of good, but a lot of trouble, too," Clinton said. "People can accept who they are without despising someone else. We have to reach across the divide, otherwise there will never be trust." Clinton also recognized the Obama administration for its efforts to connect with the Arab and Muslim world and pushed for peace in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Following his address, Clinton was presented with committee's Global Leadership Award.
