Hmmm. I take Jennifer Bryson’s point, via Nathaniel Peters , that in his speech President Obama used more precise and defensible terms than “the Muslim world.” Yet, by addressing “Muslim communities,” “Muslims around the world,” and “Muslim-majority countries” within one highly-heralded speech in Cairo, Egypt, I think that Obama was certainly living up to the billing of attempting to address that dubious concept that we, National Public Radio , and every other media outlet are calling “the Muslim world.”
