Obama spent his first 2 years in office obsessively trying to do Muslim outreach even going as far as to make Muslim outreach something he wants NASA to get involved in and for all his attempts at outreach he got nowhere. Its partly because of this obsession with Muslim outreach that the peace process is today worse than it has been in history because he was unwilling to dictate to Abbas so he refused to talk to Bibi ever. America's problem is not religious tolerance it is the Muslim attitudes toward anybody insulting their faith and its prophets either intentionally or not. The Innocence of Muslims film is not a hate movie its a spoof like Monty Python we only see these problems when Muslims feel they have been insulted because other religions just ignore it if something insulting is said about their religion so nobody takes any notice so it always looks like the west is going out its way to insult Muslims. The US is not giving Jordan any money to take in Syrian refugees because its seen as Jordans obligation not theirs so why should they spend American money on somebody else's problem? Nobody knows or can even control what a post Assad Syria will be like, maybe there will be an ordinary transition of power & stability and maybe it will be all out civil war with Syrians killing each other for the next decade. Until Assad goes nobody can even attempt to control the outcome. The US is not going to use military action in Syria because unlike Libya it would involve boots on the ground and so they prefer the Syrians to fight it out themselves. Theory is fine when your sitting on a comfy chair in an air conditioned office but when it comes to actually dealing with the real problems its not so easy.
