It’s time US changes the way it looks at Arab word: Morsi

Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi has said that the United States needs to fundamentally change its approach to the Arab world and show greater respect for its Islamic values and help build a Palestinian state, if it hoped to overcome decades of pent-up anger. During his visit to the United States, Morsi gave a 90-minute interview with the New York Times to introduce himself to the Americans and to revise the terms of relations between Cairo and Washington.

He said it was up to Washington to improve relations with the Arab world, and to revitalize the alliance with Egypt, long a cornerstone of regional stability. If Washington is asking Egypt to honor its treaty with Israel, he said, Washington should also live up to its own Camp David commitment to Palestinian self-rule. He said the United States must respect the Arab world’s history and culture, even when that conflicts with Western values.
