An audience of over 12,000 Muslim and non-Muslim Americans are expected to attend the speech in an effort to bring together the people and express good will.  Other topics to be discussed will be how Islam prohibits terrorism and murder and promotes tolerance, peace, interaction and cooperation among people maintaining that it is not only possible it is necessary to intertwine using the Egyptian Muslims and Christians as an example.
