CAIR-Chicago Executive Director Ahmed Rehab says that he hopes the President’s speech represents a shift away from what he calls a “post-9/11″ narrative in American-Islamic relations.

“I think the President realizes that this is a historic opportunity for us to shift our foreign policy towards the Arab world, towards acknowledging the fact that it is the millions in the street calling for democracy and freedom, that are the real voice of that part of the world – and not the sporadic, peripheral, marginal, militant radical groups,” said Ahmed Rehab.
