Obama plans to organize a Muslim summit

Ed Lasky
Barack Obama told a French magazine that he would organize a summit of the Muslim world if he is elected. AFP reports:

Muslim and Western leaders would be invited to the summit for “a discussion about how we can prevent the widening misunderstandings and gaps between the Muslim world and the West,” Obama said in the interview to Paris Match.
“I will ask them to join us in battling terrorism but we should also be willing to listen in terms of some of their concerns,” he said in the interview to be released Thursday.
Listen to the concerns the Muslim world has? I wonder what those concerns might be? How about letting the Muslim world know about our concerns? Terrorism, denial of human rights, teaching of hatred, the death penalty (which Obama opposes), the impoverishing of the world because of sky high extortionate oil prices which ahs made a few rich and many desperately poor?
