Extremists have exploited tensions among Muslims, US President Barack Obama said during a speech from Cairo on Thursday. He went on to say that some people in the United States view Islam as hostile to Western countries. Obama says that is not the case, despite fear and mistrust. "So long as our relationship is defined by our differences, we will empower those who sow hatred rather than peace," he said.
