"PEOPLE OF THE WORLD, THIS IS OUR MOMENT; THIS IS OUR TIME."
This speech is amazing in its elocution and delivery. Notice that he's not looking at cue cards either. He knows the art of pacing himself. The only thing that bothers me is the strong talk against the abstract act of terrorism. No, I'm not "for" terrorism. But that talk seems like masked anger toward weak, miserable, deluded people who happen to be arab and Muslim, and it just sounds too much like GWB macho speak. It's forgetting that the people who commit acts of violent desperation are the most miserable, disempowered, and hopeless people in the world. More than anything, I wish he was sending those people a message that they were not forgotten, that their misery is observed and that we all believe in justice for them too, not just Israelis, not just Germans, not just Europeans. Now, do THAT, and we might begin to end terrorism.
