We thank the American people for electing an African American as their 44th President. This is a people’s mandate, not a US Supreme Court verdict.
President Obama’s landslide victory is being celebrated not only in the US but around the world, especially in Israel and Palestine.In his victory speech, Mr. Obama said: “If there is anyone out there who still doubts that America is a place where all things are possible, who still wonders if the dream of our founders is alive in our time, who still questions the power of democracy, tonight is your answer.”
Many people in the crowd wept as Mr. Obama spoke these words.
Obama’s victory proves to the world that if each and every country keeps aside caste, creed and race, even a member of a minority group can achieve the top position through a democratic process. President Obama will ease the tension in the Middle East that has claimed many lives because of the US government’s intervention under the administration of George W. Bush.
While the whole world awaits immediate changes in the new US administration, Muslims anticipate a quick solution for the Palestine issue that has plagued the Middle East for more than half a century.
We hope and pray that President Obama will bring peace to the Middle East.
