Obama is expected to speak broadly to the Arab and Muslim worlds from Cairo on Thursday morning.

“It is a historic moment for both Arabs, Muslims and Americans and it is definitely a historic moment for Arab and Muslim Americans,” said CAAO spokesman Osama Siblani. “We’ll be watching this speech with
great interest.”
