Crown Prince have been filled with great

5-16

warmth goodwill and tremendous

5-20

cooperation yesterday we signed historic

5-23

agreements with the Kingdom that will

5-27

invest almost 400 billion dollars in our

5-34

of thousands of jobs in America and

5-52

Saudi friends to get a good deal from

5-55

our great American defense companies the

5-59

greatest anywhere in the world this

6-02

agreement will help the Saudi military

6-04

to take a far greater role in security

6-09

and operations having to do with

6-12

security we’ve also started discussions

6-16

with many of the countries present today

6-18

on strengthening partnerships and

6-20

forming new ones to advance security and

6-24

stability across the Middle East and far

6-27

beyond later today we will make history

6-30

again with the opening of the new global

6-34

center for combating extremist idea

6-37

ecology located right here in the

6-41

central part of the Islamic world this

6-46

groundbreaking new center represents a

6-48

clear declaration that Muslim majority

6-51

countries must take the lead in

6-55

combating radicalization and I want to

6-58

express our gratitude to King Salman for

7-02

his strong demonstration and his

7-06

absolutely incredible and powerful

7-09

leadership I’ve had the pleasure of

7-13

welcoming several of the leaders present

7-15

today to the White House and I look

7-18

forward to working with all of you

7-21

America is a sovereign nation and our

7-24

first priority is always the safety and

7-27

security of our citizens we are not here

7-32

to lecture we are not here to tell other

7-37

people how to live what to do who to be

7-41

or how to worship instead we are here to

7-45

offer partnership based on shared

7-48

interests and values to pursue a better

7-51

future for all of us here at this summit

7-55

we will discuss many interests that we

7-59

share together but above all we must be

8-03

united in pursuing the one goal that

8-06

transcends every other consideration

8-09

that goal is to meet history’s great

8-12

tests to conquer extremism and vanquish

8-16

the forces that terrorism brings with it

8-20

every single time young Muslim boys and

8-25

girls should be able to grow up free

8-27

from fear safe from violence and

8-30

innocent of hatred when young Muslim men

8-35

and women should have the chance to

8-38

build a new era of prosperity for

8-40

themselves it has to be done and we have

8-44

to let them do it with God’s help this

8-48

summit will mark the beginning of the

8-50

end

8-51

for those who practice terror and spread

8-54

its vile Creed at the same time we pray

8-58

the special gathering may someday be

9-01

remembered as the beginning of peace in

9-04

the Middle East and maybe even all over

9-08

the world but this future can only be

9-12

achieved through defeating terrorism and

9-15

the ideology that drives it few nations

9-21

have been spared the violent reach of

9-25

terrorism America has suffered repeated

9-29

barbaric attacks from the atrocities of

9-33

September 11th to the devastation of the

9-36

Boston bombings to the horrible killings

9-39

in San Bernardino and Orlando the

9-43

nations of Europe have also endured

9-46

unspeakable horror so to have the

9-50

nations of Africa and South America

9-54

India Russia China and Australia have

10-00

all been victims but in sheer numbers

10-02

the deadliest toll has been exacted on

10-06

the innocent people of Arab Muslim and

10-11

Middle Eastern nations they have borne

10-15

the brunt of the killings and the worst

10-17

of the destruction in this wave of

10-20

fanatical violence

10-23

some estimates hold that more than 95%

10-26

of the victims of terrorism are

10-29

themselves Muslim we now face

10-33

humanitarian and security disaster in

10-36

this region that is spreading across the

10-39

planet it is a tragedy of epic

10-44

proportions no description of the

10-48

suffering and depravity can begin to

10-51

capture its full measure the to crow of

10-56

Isis if you look at what’s happening al

11-00

Qaeda Hezbollah Hamas

11-04

and so many others must be counted not

11-08

only in the number of dead it also must

11-10

be counted in generations of vanished

11-14

dreams the Middle East is rich with

11-18

natural beauty vibrant cultures and

11-21

massive amounts of historic treasures it

11-24

should increasingly become one of the

11-28

great global centres of Commerce and

11-30

opportunity this region should not be a

11-33

place from which refugees flee but to

11-37

which newcomers flock Saudi Arabia is

11-41

home to the holiest sites in one of the

11-46

world’s great faiths each year millions

11-50

of Muslims come from around the world to

11-53

Saudi Arabia to take part in the Hajj in

11-57

addition to ancient wonders this country

12-01

is also home to modern ones including

12-05

soaring achievements and architecture

12-08

Egypt was a thriving center of learning

12-11

and achievement thousands of years

12-14

before other parts of the world the

12-17

wonders of his luxor and Alexandria are

12-22

proud monuments to that ancient heritage

12-27

all over the world people dream of

12-29

walking through the ruins of Petra in

12-33

Jordan Iraq was the cradle of

12-37

civilization and is a land of natural

12-40

beauty and the United Arab Emirates has

12-45

reached incredible heights with glass

12-48

and steel and turned Earth and water

12-50

into spectacular works of art the entire

12-56

region is at the center of the key

12-59

shipping lines of the Suez Canal the Red

13-03

Sea and the Straits of Hormuz

13-07

the potential of this region has never

13-10

ever been greater sixty-five percent of

13-15

its population is under the age

13-18

of 30 like all young men and women they

13-22

seek great futures to build great

13-24

national projects to join and a place

13-28

for their families to call home but this

13-32

untapped potential this tremendous cause

13-35

of optimism is held at bay by bloodshed

13-40

and terror there can be no coexistence

13-45

with this violence there can be no

13-49

tolerating it no accepting it no

13-52

excusing it and no ignoring it every

13-56

time a terrorist murders an innocent

13-58

person and falsely invokes the name of

14-01

God it should be an insult to every

14-05

person of faith terrorists do not

14-09

worship God they worship death if we do

14-14

not act against this organized terror

14-16

then we know what will happen and what

14-21

will be the end result

14-24

terrorism’s devastation of life will

14-27

continue to spread peaceful societies

14-31

will become engulfed by violence and the

14-34

futures of many generations will be

14-38

sadly squandered if we do not stand in

14-41

uniform condemnation of this killing

14-44

then not only will we be judged by our

14-47

people not only will we be judged by

14-51

history but we will be judged by God

14-56

this is not a battle between different

14-59

faiths different sects or different

15-03

civilizations this is a battle between

15-07

barbaric criminals who seek to

15-10

obliterate human life and decent people

15-13

all in the name of religion people that

15-19

want to protect life and want to protect

15-23

their religion this is a battle between

15-26

good and evil when we see

15-30

the scenes of destruction in the wake of

15-33

terror we see no signs that does

15-36

murdered were Jewish or Christian Shia

15-40

or Sunni when we look upon the strains

15-45

of innocent blood soaked into the

15-47

ancient ground we cannot see the faith

15-50

or sect or tribe of the victims we see

15-55

only that they were children of God

15-57

whose nests are an insult to all that is

16-03

holy but we can only overcome this evil

16-07

if the forces of good are united and

16-10

strong and if everyone in this room does

16-13

their fair share and fulfills their part

16-16

of the burden terrorism has spread all

16-20

across the world but the path to peace

16-23

begins right here on this ancient soil

16-26

in this sacred land America is prepared

16-31

to stand with you in pursuit of shared

16-34

interests and common security but the

16-37

nations of the Middle East cannot wait

16-39

for American power to crush this enemy

16-42

for them the nations of the Middle East

16-44

will have to decide what kind of future

16-48

they want for themselves for their

16-50

country and frankly for their families

16-54

and for their children it’s a choice

16-57

between two futures and it is a choice

17-00

America cannot make for you a better

17-05

future is only possible if your nations

17-08

drive out the terrorists and drive out

17-11

the extremists drive them out drive them

17-18

out of your places of worship drive them

17-22

out of your communities drive them out

17-25

of your holy land and drive them out of

17-29

this earth for our part America is

17-35

committed to adjusting our strategies to

17-38

meet evolving threats and new facts

17-41

we will discard those strategies that

17-45

have not worked and will apply new

17-46

approaches informed by experienced

17-50

talent and judgment we are adopting a

17-54

principle realism rooted in common

17-58

values shared interests and common sense

18-02

our friends will never question our

18-05

support and our enemies will never doubt

18-08

our determination our partnerships will

18-12

advance security through stability not

18-15

through radical disruption we will make

18-18

decisions based on real-world outcomes

18-21

not inflexible ideology we will be

18-25

guided by the lessons of experience not

18-28

the confines of rigid thinking and

18-32

wherever possible we will seek gradual

18-36

reforms not sudden intervention we must

18-40

seek partners not perfection and to make

18-45

allies of all who share our goals above

18-49

all America seeks peace not war Muslim

18-53

nations must be willing to take on the

18-56

burden if we are going to defeat

18-58

terrorism and send its wicked ideology

19-01

into oblivion

19-04

the first task in this joint effort is

19-07

for your nations to deny all territory

19-10

to the foot soldiers of evil every

19-14

country in the region has an absolute

19-16

duty to ensure that terrorists find no

19-20

sanctuary on their soil many are already

19-24

making significant contributions to

19-27

regional security Jordanian pilots are

19-31

crucial partners against Isis in Syria

19-34

and Iraq Saudi Arabia and a regional

19-39

coalition have taken strong action

19-42

against hootie militants in Yemen the

19-47

Lebanese army is hunting Isis operatives

19-50

who try to infiltrate their territory

19-54

Emirati troops are supporting our Afghan

20-00

partners and supporting them strongly in

20-05

Mosul American troops are supporting

20-08

Kurds Sunnis and she is fighting

20-11

together for their homeland Qatar which

20-16

hosts the US Central Command is a

20-19

crucial strategic partner our

20-24

long-standing partnership with Kuwait

20-26

and Bahrain continued to enhance

20-30

security in the region our courageous

20-34

Afghan soldiers are making tremendous

20-36

sacrifices in the fight against the

20-39

Taliban and others in the fight for

20-42

their country as we deny terrorist

20-46

organization control of territory and

20-49

populations we must also strip them of

20-53

their access to funds we must cut off

20-57

the financial channels that let Isis

21-00

sell oil let extremists pay their

21-03

fighters and help terrorists smuggle

21-06

their reinforcements I am proud to

21-10

announce that the nations here today

21-12

will be signing an agreement to prevent

21-15

the financing of terrorism called the

21-19

terrorist financing targeting center

21-23

co-chaired by the United States and

21-25

Saudi Arabia and joined by every member

21-29

of the Gulf Cooperation Council it is

21-34

another historic step in a day that will

21-37

be long remembered I also applaud the

21-42

Gulf Cooperation Council for blocking

21-46

funders from using their countries as a

21-49

financial base for terror and for

21-53

designating Hezbollah as a terrorist

21-56

organization which they certainly are

22-00

last year

22-01

Saudi Arabia also joined us this week in

22-04

placing sanctions on one of the most

22-07

senior Lee

22-08

years of Hezbollah of course there is

22-12

still much work to be done

22-16

that means honestly confronting the

22-19

crisis of Islamic extremism and the

22-22

Islamists and Islamic terror of all

22-26

kinds

22-27

we must stop what they’re doing to

22-30

inspire because they do nothing to

22-33

inspire but kill and we are having a

22-38

very profound effect if you look at

22-42

what’s happened recently and it means

22-45

standing together against the murder of

22-48

innocent Muslims the oppression of women

22-51

the persecution of Jews and the

22-54

slaughter of Christians religious

22-57

leaders must make this absolutely clear

23-00

barbarism will deliver you no glory

23-04

piety to evil will bring you no dignity

23-09

if you choose the path of terror your

23-15

life will be empty your life will be

23-18

brief and your soul will be fully

23-23

condemned and political leaders must

23-27

speak out to affirm the same idea heroes

23-30

don’t kill innocence they save them many

23-33

nations here today have taken important

23-36

steps to raise up that message Saudi

23-39

Arabia’s vision for 2030 is an important

23-43

and encouraging statement of tolerance

23-45

respect empowering women and economic

23-49

development the United Arab Emirates has

23-53

also engaged in the battle for the

23-55

hearts and souls and with the United

23-58

States launched a center to counter the

24-01

online spread of hate Bahrain too is

24-04

working to undermine recruitment and

24-07

radicalism I also applaud your Turkey

24-11

and Lebanon for their role in hosting

24-15

refugees the surge of migrants and

24-19

refugees living and just

24-21

living so poorly that they’re forced to

24-24

leave the Middle East depletes the human

24-28

capital needed to build stable societies

24-31

and economies instead of depriving this

24-35

region of so much human potential Middle

24-38

Eastern countries can give young people

24-40

hope for a brighter future in their home

24-43

nations and regions that means promoting

24-48

the aspirations and dreams of all

24-51

citizens who seek a better life

24-52

including women children and the

24-55

followers of all faced numerous Arab and

24-59

Islamic scholars have eloquently argued

25-03

that protecting equality strengthens

25-07

Arab and Muslim communities for many

25-11

centuries the Middle East has been home

25-13

to Christians Muslims and Jews living

25-17

side-by-side we must practice tolerance

25-21

and respect for each other once again

25-23

and make this region a place where every

25-27

man and woman no matter their faiths or

25-31

ethnicity can enjoy a life of dignity

25-34

and hope in that spirit after concluding

25-40

my risen in a fabulous place that we’re

25-46

at today Riyadh which I’ve gotten to

25-50

know so well in so shorter time I will

25-54

travel to Jerusalem and Bethlehem and

25-56

then to the Vatican visiting many of the

26-00

holiest places in the three Abrahamic

26-04

faiths

26-05

if these 3-phase can join together in

26-08

cooperation then peace in this world is

26-12

possible including peace between

26-15

Israelis and Palestinians I will be

26-20

meeting with both Israeli Prime Minister

26-23

Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian

26-29

President Abbas

26-33

starving terrorists of their territory

26-36

of their funding and the false allure of

26-40

the Craven ideology will be the basis

26-44

for easily defeating them but no

26-48

discussion of stamping out this threat

26-51

would be complete without mentioning the

26-53

government that gives terrorists all

26-55

three safe harbor financial backing and

26-59

the social standing needed for

27-03

recruitment it is a regime that is

27-06

responsible for so much instability in

27-09

that region I am speaking of course of

27-13

Iran from Lebanon to Iraq to Yemen Iran

27-21

funds arms and trains terrorists

27-24

militias and other extremist groups that

27-28

spread destruction and chaos across the

27-32

region for decades Iran has filled the

27-35

fires of sectarian conflict and terror

27-38

is a government that speaks openly of

27-41

mass murder vowing the destruction of

27-44

Israel death to America and ruin for

27-48

many leaders and nations in this very

27-51

room among Iran’s most tragic and

27-56

destabilizing interventions you’ve seen

28-00

it in Syria bolstered by Iran Assad has

28-06

committed unspeakable crimes and the

28-09

United States has taken firm action in

28-12

response to the use of banned chemical

28-15

weapons by the Assad regime

28-20

launching 59 missiles at the Syrian air

28-25

base from where that murderers attack

28-28

originated responsible nations must work

28-32

together to end the humanitarian crisis

28-35

in Syria eradicate Isis and restore

28-39

stability to the region and as quickly

28-42

as possible

28-43

the Iranian regime’s longest suffering

28-46

victims are its own people Iran has a

28-50

rich history and culture but the people

28-53

of Iran have endured hardship and

28-55

despair under their leaders reckless

28-58

pursuit of conflict and terror until the

29-02

Iranian regime is willing to be a

29-04

partner for peace all nations of

29-07

conscience must work together to isolate

29-11

deny it

29-12

funding for terrorism cannot do it and

29-16

pray for the day when the Iranian people

29-20

have the just and righteous government

29-22

they so richly deserve the decisions we

29-26

make will affect countless lives King

29-31

Salman I thank you for the creation of

29-35

this great moment in history and for

29-39
