President Obama's Cairo Speech - Did it Jump Start Democracy in Egypt?

The experts said it was a great and important hopeful, healing speech. It was praised in the Muslim world, in the West and by Muslim Americans here at home. A few wise men thought it might be a game changer, more so than I thought, or even the President might have imagined. Did it start the rolling democracy revolutions across Africa and the "Middle East"? what do you think. (Video)

Let's Go To The Video Tape

Sit back for a minute and put yourself in the other guys shoes. You watched, along with the rest of the world, as the people of the United States rose up and peaceably replaced a criminally insane leader and his gang, who tortured and terrorized the world and bankrupt his nation.

You note that the Citizens of America hired a smart guy the is not Culturally Illiterate. One who also knows something about and respects Islam. You are in the hall, listing to this man who has come to your land to give you hope. Would you then be content to go back home as a young person and live under Egypt's George Bush i.e. Mubarak?

What a Marvelous tribute from the land of Classical African Civilization, kemet (Ancient Egypt) 

As the President quoted the Quaran "be conscious of God and Speak always the truth", (05:59 min) few in the West understood  the profound importance of that opening. Even fewer in the world understood how deeply rooted those words are in the land of my ancestors that the President was speaking from. 

What do you think, what role did the speech play in recent events in the Muslim world?
