Open Letter to President Obama about Democracy Promotion in the Middle East and the Muslim World - * This letter was sent to President Obama on May 22, 2009, on the eve of President Obama’s historic visit to Egypt and address to the Muslim World.  It was signed by 1,600 American -  Muslim and non-Muslim experts and scholars on the Middle East.  A year and a half later, we still have not received an official response from the White House, and we feel that this letter needs to be read - again - by President Obama and his advisers.  That is why The Center for the Study of Islam and Democracy (CSID) is sending it again, as a reminder.  To add your name to the signatories please click here.
