Features new Muslim leader has a message for the United States we need to give his people a break and change America's approach to the Muslim world.
-- but don't expect President Obama to sit down with him at the table here in New York this week instead this week.
The president is going on the view and choosing what being over world peace.
He asked with a question Mark Fox is legal analyst Peter Johnson junior joins us live.
-- it really really is all about choices should the president be meeting with the Egyptian president -- -- or with a joint base car.
I mean that's the critical critical issue he's choosing well it's all about the demo it's all about the ratings -- six -- million viewers last time on the view mr.
Or warping he's meeting with what all right more importantly the choices the president making in this speech at the UN which should be the most significant speech that he's made.
During this campaign if not the presidency based on the Middle East being in fire at this point.
Instead of meeting with foreign leaders he's now been making this speech he's in and out of town very quickly.
What will he say.
Will -- say this video is offensive yes he's basically said he's gonna say the video -- offensive.
When he says the videos offensive he's he's signing on.
To the mideast excuse.
For violence in the mideast an anti American hatred unfortunately he is.
Is he going to say.
Listen folks in -- east who hate America you need to sign on to our recognition of the First Amendment.
In the same way we're signing on to where our understanding of Sharia law in your country.
You need to sign on to our recognition of the State of Israel.
In the same way that we're signing on to try and help build a Palestinian.
It's two way -- it's mutual respect.
We've proven that we understand Islam.
We've proven that -- respect -- to the Muslim religion we have proven that were after extremists and not.
The wonderful -- populists of the Muslim world we've proven.
These things we don't need to prove anything else so will -- new Obama doctrine that says to the mideast -- enough.
-- -- -- enough or will it be apology will that BP's men who will it be a rerun of the 2009 new beginning speech which has failed to me.
One -- that is excellent points.
The other thing is he's meeting with you know Barbara Walters rather than meeting -- Bibi Netanyahu.
It is it's it's incredible as the mideast is is -- -- as our national reputation.
Is internationally being decimated as we have stories in the New York Times today.
Saying that our -- winning in the in mideast in the same way it did it in Asia in the sixties and seventies.
As a result of Vietnam War basically pack your bags -- and get out.
Why isn't he taking advantage this opportunity to meet with the Egyptian president.
To meet with Hamid Karzai to meet with our allies didn't meet with even the enemies that he said he would meet with one on one.
The true issue is I ran almost has a nuclear weapon so and they almost have a nuclear weapon in almost four years of this president.
Trying to stop it.
This will be a breakthrough moment hopefully.
For our country today.
If it's not it's gonna affect this campaign I believe in a big way and our country in an even bigger.
Bigger way the choice -- easy when I love Elisabeth Hasselbeck but Hamad Karzai or Elisabeth Hasselbeck and her right.
-- -- -- -- -- Our Barbara Walters is one of the great journalists of our time anyway Barbara that's the ratings are that with a demo is that's where the votes she wins we lose.
-- Peter Johnson junior the great.
