For example, as a Muslim-American, I was heartened to see that in 2009 the president, a devout Christian, spoke to the Muslim world in Cairo about the fact that Islam is a religion of peace.

At a time when the drums of conflict are beating louder than ever, I hope that in the president’s next term the cries for peace will continue to sound.
