Image by W&M Libraries
Shown here is an image from the exhibit "Of Plenty and Paucity: Civil War Medicines and Their Makers," on display in the Nancy Marshall Gallery just outside the Special Collections Research Center on the first floor of Swem Library at the College of William & Mary. This exhibit is part of "From Fights to Rights: The Long Road to a More Perfect Union," Swem Library’s project to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War and the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Movement. The exhibit is on display from October 28, 2011 through April 16, 2012.

The following is a transcription of the label text presented in this exhibit.

Apothecary scales, circa 1860s

The pharmacist would weigh out the ingredients on
apothecary scales, using the appropriate weights, and mix the ingredients as instructed. These scales are hand-held and would typically have been used in the field. Sometimes, the doctor only included the main ingredients and left it to the pharmacist to
determine what diluting agents or excipients to use.

Cassimere Churchill to Sister
Washington, D.C., 1862

Cassimere Churchill of the 9th New York Cavalry disliked quinine, which had a very bitter taste, and refused to take it.

Orders of the Medical Department, C.S.A.
Petersburg, Virginia, 1862-1863

Recognizing the supply issues early in the War, the
Confederate medical department ordered stewards to purchase botanical medical supplies locally, as seen in the price list for herbs from the records of the Confederate hospital at Petersburg.

Unlike the Union forces, the Confederacy suffered
severe shortages, although quinine was on the supply list for Chimborazo Hospital in Richmond.

Medicine bottle, circa 1860s

Quinine was typically served in liquid form, mixed with whiskey, in bottles much like the one on display here, which would have been corked.

Richard Morgan to Celia Morgan
Camp Butler, Springfield, Illnois, 1865

Pharmacists could do their work in a variety of locations from camps and hospitals to the field. Swem Library has a small number of papers relating to Richard Morgan, a Union apothecary at the post hospital at Camp Butler. In an 1865 letter to his estranged wife Celia, he described filling prescriptions all day and examining highly-contagious patients. He also boasted of having the keys to the liquor cabinet, a fact unlikely to amuse Celia, who had left him because of his drinking. Alcohol was a key ingredient in liquid medicines.

Richard and Celia Morgan Papers, Mss. 2010.237

Mortar and pestle, circa 1860s

Stewards used large metal mortars and pestles to pound chopped, dried herbs or vegetables used for medicines into smaller particles. They used smaller porcelain mortars and pestles to create and mix powders.

Prescription ledger, 1863-1864

This prescription ledger belonged to Captain Edward Restieaux, a Boston druggist who was
assistant quartermaster of the 2nd Division of the 5th Army Corps in Washington. The record he kept for himself in the ledger did not include all the parts of a prescription.

Quinine: The Miracle Drug

Quinine sulfate, made from a derivate of the bark of the
cinchona tree, was probably the favorite drug of Civil War surgeons. They used it to treat a great variety of ailments from fevers to stomachaches to lack of energy.

Cinchona did not grow in the United States, which in the 19th century imported supplies of the bark from Peru. Dogwood and other barks proved ineffective
substitutes, and Confederate soldiers died from malaria at much greater rates than Union soldiers.

Most soldiers accepted quinine as a treatment and
energizer. Researchers later discovered that quinine is not nearly as effective as was commonly believed during the Civil War. It is, however, useful in treating malaria, a problem that plagued soldiers serving in the swamps and lowlands of the South.

Reading a Prescription

A complete prescription would include:
1.Rx: an abbreviation of the Latin for recipe
2.In Latin, a list of ingredients (often abbreviated) and the quantities of each, using the apothecary measures followed by lower-case Roman numerals:
Joseph Janvier Woodward

The Hospital Steward’s Manual
Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1862, 280
3.In Latin, directions for how to mix together the
ingredients and prepare them for the patient
4.In English, directions for how the patient should take the prescription

Resources of the Southern Fields and Forests
Richmond, Virginia: West and Johnson, 1863

The Confederate Surgeon-General’s office
produced Resources of the Southern Fields and Forests to guide surgeons and stewards in making the best use possible of the South’s natural resources.

The North usually had ample supplies of quinine, as seen in the list of supplies issued at the Union depot at Norfolk in 1863.

Civil War Collection, Mss. 39.1 C76

Southern Shortages

Shortages of drugs plagued Confederate stewards. The United States traditionally had imported some key drugs, including opium and quinine. The Union blockade of Southern seaports and efforts to prevent overland smuggling caused severe shortages of these drugs in the South by late 1863. Even for drugs that the South was able to produce, transportation and communication problems meant that stewards in Confederate hospitals and military units frequently could not obtain what they needed.

Despite the Confederate pharmacists’ best efforts, drug
shortages were a severe problem during the later years of the War. No adequate substitute based on local botanicals was found for many drugs. However, some of the local substitutes did treat symptoms, even if they did not cure the underlying diseases.

Pa amb Sobrassada
natural cures
Image by Juan Antonio Capó
La sobrasada (del mallorquín sobrassada) es un embutido crudo curado, elaborado a partir de carnes seleccionadas del cerdo, condimentadas con sal, pimentón y pimienta negra. Se embute en tripa y presenta una lenta maduración.
Este producto es tradicional de Mallorca y las Islas Baleares, y está protegido con el sello de Indicación Geográfica. En la cocina mallorquina tradicional, la sobrasada suele consumirse el mismo día de matanza o poco después: tostada en invierno, o untada en pan y cruda en verano. Aunque pueden durar varios años en un lugar seco, lo habitual es consumir la longaniza durante el primer invierno, la sobrasada en verano, y las más grandes cuando se hace la matanza del año siguiente.
Este producto surge a partir de la necesidad de guardar los alimentos durante largos periodos de tiempo, utilizando las técnicas del salado para embutir carne picada. El origen de su nombre se encuentra en Sicilia, donde se practicaba una técnica conocida como sopressa, que significa "picado", aplicado a la carne para embutir. De esta zona, pasó a la península Ibérica gracias al comercio marítimo, y de Valencia se expandió hasta Mallorca, donde ve su mayor desarrollo a partir del siglo XVI.
Aunque en las primeras sobrasadas se prima el cerdo, al poco tiempo se introduce el uso de pimentón como signo distintivo para la conservación de los alimentos, ya que la carne adquiere su color rojo característico. Con el paso del tiempo el proceso de elaboración se perfecciona, y en 1993 el Gobierno balear reconoce la Denominación Específica para la sobrasada mallorquina. En 1996, la Unión Europea le otorga el sello de Indicación Geográfica.
Cada familia y pueblo elaboraba su propia receta en base a sus costumbres y peculiaridades al ser un producto de matanza. Sin embargo, existen unas características específicas reguladas por la Denominación Específica mallorquina: un 60% de carne magra por un 30%-40% de tocino, 20-30 gramos de sal por kilo de pasta, 60 gramos de pimentón por kilo, y pimienta picante u otras especias al gusto de cada uno. Cuando es más grasa, suele tener más pimentón. El alimento es natural, por lo que la Denominación de origen prohibe expresamente el uso de colorantes.
El proceso consta de dos fases diferenciadas. En la primera se elabora el propio embutido, que consta de las etapas de picado de la carne de cerdo, mezclada con los otros ingredientes y el embutido en las tripas. En la segunda, se produce la maduración y desecado del producto.
El picado tradicional se hacía a mano pero con la mejora de la producción se realiza mecánicamente, con una máquina trituradora programada para lograr partículas inferiores a los 6 milímetros. Después, la carne es sazonada y se le añaden las especias. La masa se embute en las tripas, y se somete a un proceso de curación en los secaderos.
Una vez finalizado, la sobrasada se presenta en forma de longaniza con una textura untuosa. En relación a las características de la tripa o el envase utilizado se distinguen las siguientes presentaciones de Sobrasada de Mallorca: longaniza, rizada, semirizada, cular, bufeta, bisbe, poltrú o tarrina.
Sobrassada is a raw, cured sausage from the Balearic Islands made with ground pork, paprika and salt and other spices. Sobrassada, along with botifarró are traditional Majorcan sausage meat products prepared in the laborious but festive rites that still mark the autumn and winter pig slaughter in Majorca. The chemical principle that makes sobrassada is the dehydration of meat under certain weather conditions (high humidity and mild cold) which are typical of the late Majorcan autumn.
Ingredients and varieties
Sobrassada is made with a choice of pork loin, pork bacon (xuia), minced and mixed with paprika, salt and (in modern times) black pepper. Some makers also add cayenne pepper to the mixture and market it as picant, hot. Then the mixture is put into a pork intestine, and hung from a pole for some weeks until it is cured. The string which is tied around the intestine can be used to differentiate between the hot and dolç (literally "sweet", though in this case meaning "not spicy") varieties, the red or red and white string being the hot one.
Small, thin sobrassadas are called llonganissa, and are made from the small intestine. Bigger and thicker ones are called cular or pultrums, and the largest type are huge pork bladders called bufetes.
Sobrassada outside the Balearic islands
Four geographical areas in the Mediterranean, apart from the Balearic islands, have close links to sobrassada for different reasons:
1.- In colonial Algeria, sobrassada was part of the pied-noir cuisine and extremely popular. The French version was named soubressade. Upon the independence and re-islamisation of the country this pork product became less and less important and can today only be found in continental France in butcher shops run by pied-noirs.
2.- In Catalonia, due to cultural links with the Balearic islands, sobrassada is sometimes found together with other autochthonous pork products. The eastern Pyrenees are known for a mountain version of sobrassada.
3.- The village of Tàrbena, in the province of Alicante, was re-populated after the expulsion of the Moriscos with colonists from Majorca who brought along several traditions from the island, including their own variant of the Catalan language and foods such as the sobrassada, which is still being made there in the same way.
4.- In the island of Sicily, either a predecessor or a contemporary product is found under the name sopressada at least since the 15th century. There is debate over exactly where the product originated.
Short history of sobrassada and Mallorquin penchant for pork
Other pork products typical from the cuisine of Mallorca are camaïot, veria negra and xuia (pancetta).
After centuries of Muslim (non-pork) culture, Mallorca quickly returned to pork consumption in the Middle Age, with the key ingredient paprika added after the discovery of America in the 15th century. Sobrassada is thought to have originated and expanded, as a culinary concept, in the Catalan-controlled Western Mediterranean (Sicily, Balearic Islands, Sardinia) after the 14th century, as different forms of the same product persist in this region still today.
In a traditional Mediterranean diet, containing little meat, as Mallorca had until the 1950s, sobrassada and its affiliated pork sausages were usually the main and exclusive pork meat source for Mallorquins. Larger meat cuts like pork or lamb roasts, pork steaks or beef cuts were largely a festive dish, or restricted to the well-off. Even today dishes such as porcella rostida, a whole roasted suckling pig, are only served on special occasions.

Under Vice President Biden’s leadership, the White House Cancer Moonshot Task Force catalyzed novel, innovative and impactful collaborations among twenty government agencies, departments and White House offices and over seventy private sector entities designed to achieve a decade’s worth of progress in five years in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. He helped lead the effort to pass the 21st Century Cures Act that provides an additional .8 billion investment over seven years for the Cancer Moonshot’s scientific priorities.
Now, after more than 40 years of public service, Vice President Biden has recommitted himself to inject a sense of urgency into our cancer research enterprise and to reimagine how the government, academia, non-profits and the private sector can better organize their resources and systems to collaborate to take on cancer. In a 1-on-1 interview, Vice President Biden sits down with Dr. David Agus to talk about the progress made through the Cancer Moonshot and the strategy for the work ahead, including how we must change the culture in the fight to end cancer.

"Pink Heals Tour Picks Up Donated Firetruck in Texas

"Dave Graybill, a firefighter from Arizona, started the Pink Heals Tour in 2007 to inspire men to support the women in their community who are battling cancer. He travels the country in a pink fire engine raising money and spreading cancer awareness. Last week, Graybill went to Tyler, Texas to pick up his sixth truck, a 1969 fire truck that will join his Pink fleet, according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph.

During the ceremony, Tyler firefighters announced that ,220 in locally raised donations would be allocated to six charities, ,055 would be donated to Susan G. Komen for the Cure in Tyler; ,055 to the American Cancer Society; ,250 to the East Texas Medical Center Foundation for its "Pink Ribbon Getaway" and the "Great Getaway" programs; ,250 to the Trinity Mother Frances Health System Foundation for its "Hopeful Journey" and genetic testing programs; 0 to the Cancer Foundation for Life’s "Fit Steps for Life" program; and 0 to the "Pink Heals Tour", Guardians of the Ribbon. The remaining ,610 will be used to start Tyler Firefighters CARE (Cancer Awareness and Relief Effort) fund to help employees and their family members diagnosed with cancer, according to the newspaper.

This was the second truck donated to the tour from Tyler. Last October, the city gave Graybill a truck named "Tonya" after the wife of Tyler firefighter Wes Malcomb, who died of cancer, according to KYTX. This truck, donated by Sam and Connie Greenberg is being named Chance, after a 5-year old St. Louis boy, according to the paper. Before this, all the other trucks were named after women who have battled cancer.

"Chance, I met on the tour last year and he has a brain tumor behind his eyes so he’s blind after his treatments," Graybill told KYTX. "I’ve got to have a truck for children’s cancer," he added. Graybill and Chance the truck headed back to Arizona. This is a post from Graybill on the Pink Heals Facebook Page "We are home with ‘Chance’. Although we broke down twice and needed to be towed each time, it was a great experience. We pushed ‘Chance’ to the limit, he was a little shy at first, threw a few temper tantrums but what a great truck!!!! Can’t wait to get ‘Chance’ all painted up and drive him across the country, but most importantly to take the real Chance for a ride on his very own fire truck."

Viewing Tobacco Control in China Through an Environmental Perspective
natural cures
Image by timquijano
///Article produced for Greening the Beige///…

As a male foreigner who has conducted the management of government relations in China, I have been offered a whole lot of cigarettes. With this in mind, I was very surprised to hear the government’s announcement that it will ban smoking in indoor public places beginning next month, with some notable exceptions–one of which being government offices. This post will describe a few environmental consequences which will be reduced by lower rates of smoking in China, assuming this regulation is at least marginally enforced.
What makes it more acceptable to throw a cigarette butt on the ground than any other piece of trash? Littering of cigarette butts is, perhaps, the most pervasive of tobacco control problems. Wherever you go, you will find butts in the cracks of the sidewalk, as the butts with their non-biodegradable nature, will last almost forever. Many of the casually discarded cigarette butts eventually flow into natural waterways, at which point the toxins such as tar leach out into the soil and water, harming the local organisms. Fish are particularly sensitive to irresponsibly discarded cigarettes, often mistaking the floating butts for food, ingesting them and being poisoned by the chemicals they contain.
The production of tobacco leaves also encourages significant deforestation, particularly in developing tropical states. The need for fuel to feed the fire or flue-curing process to dry tobacco leaves, has resulted in significant deforestation and carbon emissions. Furthermore, growing the high-nicotine tobacco that is demanded by today’s tobacco market depletes the soil of its natural nutrients quickly, thus many tobacco growers are encouraged to move to virgin, or previously undomesticated, plots of land. This rewards a continuous movement into increasingly deep virgin forest, resulting in about 5% of deforestation.
The environmental consequences of smoking cigarettes, thus, are quite remarkable. As with all numbers related to China, the numbers related to smoking in China are overwhelming–one in three smokers in the world is Chinese–thus, the Chinese authorities could considerably reduce the impact of recreational smoking on the environment.

A piece of my of summer…
Boys, Kings-of-the-world, who were for the long ten months confined to the school desks, are about to fill the world with a mixture of disordered motion and gleesome peal of their blithe voices. The world will be changed again by the daily presence of children’s gambol and their pure joy of elbowroom, freedom and adventure …. As though it could feel all the miracles of small-festivals – when fruit of the paradise trees is falling right into our arms …
And eventhough Mother Nature should better beware of the young adventurers, She rather vaunt all Her greatest wonders to the world and pride her on inexhaustible amount of beautiful colors, shapes, scents and tastes …

…And all that little life in the grass, snails leisurely gallopping with their safe houses, ants working hard and always in a hurry, beatles hidden under each leaf, lizards on the stones basking in the sun , bees diligently gatherig fine dust, butterflies dancing their flapping ballet over the meadow in full bloom…

…And tender heads of small Daisies bashfully peering at young Ribwoth’s topknot from behind the grass blades. Her Majesty, SunFlower following the way of sun to satisfy the ceremony and Candlewick inviting attention of wayfares, who stunned by her beauty gather the secret cure of her blooms.

…And swallows, eventhough cheerfully twittering, always well-groomed in their glossy tailcoats are poncing around like the summer was the one and only air show…

So… we have no choice left but to bow to all that beauty and with a look on red-weeds bleeding in the grains drift along to the the world of childhood and dreams…

10:13 A.M. EDT

PRESIDENT OBAMA: Mr. President, Mr. Secretary General, fellow delegates, ladies and gentlemen: We come together at a crossroads between war and peace; between disorder and integration; between fear and hope.

Around the globe, there are signposts of progress. The shadow of World War that existed at the founding of this institution has been lifted, and the prospect of war between major powers reduced. The ranks of member states has more than tripled, and more people live under governments they elected. Hundreds of millions of human beings have been freed from the prison of poverty, with the proportion of those living in extreme poverty cut in half. And the world economy continues to strengthen after the worst financial crisis of our lives.

Today, whether you live in downtown Manhattan or in my grandmother’s village more than 200 miles from Nairobi, you can hold in your hand more information than the world’s greatest libraries. Together, we’ve learned how to cure disease and harness the power of the wind and the sun. The very existence of this institution is a unique achievement — the people of the world committing to resolve their differences peacefully, and to solve their problems together. I often tell young people in the United States that despite the headlines, this is the best time in human history to be born, for you are more likely than ever before to be literate, to be healthy, to be free to pursue your dreams.

And yet there is a pervasive unease in our world — a sense that the very forces that have brought us together have created new dangers and made it difficult for any single nation to insulate itself from global forces. As we gather here, an outbreak of Ebola overwhelms public health systems in West Africa and threatens to move rapidly across borders. Russian aggression in Europe recalls the days when large nations trampled small ones in pursuit of territorial ambition. The brutality of terrorists in Syria and Iraq forces us to look into the heart of darkness.

Each of these problems demands urgent attention. But they are also symptoms of a broader problem — the failure of our international system to keep pace with an interconnected world. We, collectively, have not invested adequately in the public health capacity of developing countries. Too often, we have failed to enforce international norms when it’s inconvenient to do so. And we have not confronted forcefully enough the intolerance, sectarianism, and hopelessness that feeds violent extremism in too many parts of the globe.

Fellow delegates, we come together as united nations with a choice to make. We can renew the international system that has enabled so much progress, or we can allow ourselves to be pulled back by an undertow of instability. We can reaffirm our collective responsibility to confront global problems, or be swamped by more and more outbreaks of instability. And for America, the choice is clear: We choose hope over fear. We see the future not as something out of our control, but as something we can shape for the better through concerted and collective effort. We reject fatalism or cynicism when it comes to human affairs. We choose to work for the world as it should be, as our children deserve it to be.

There is much that must be done to meet the test of this moment. But today I’d like to focus on two defining questions at the root of so many of our challenges — whether the nations here today will be able to renew the purpose of the UN’s founding; and whether we will come together to reject the cancer of violent extremism.

First, all of us — big nations and small — must meet our responsibility to observe and enforce international norms. We are here because others realized that we gain more from cooperation than conquest. One hundred years ago, a World War claimed the lives of many millions, proving that with the terrible power of modern weaponry, the cause of empire ultimately leads to the graveyard. It would take another World War to roll back the forces of fascism, the notions of racial supremacy, and form this United Nations to ensure that no nation can subjugate its neighbors and claim their territory.

Recently, Russia’s actions in Ukraine challenge this post-war order. Here are the facts. After the people of Ukraine mobilized popular protests and calls for reform, their corrupt president fled. Against the will of the government in Kyiv, Crimea was annexed. Russia poured arms into eastern Ukraine, fueling violent separatists and a conflict that has killed thousands. When a civilian airliner was shot down from areas that these proxies controlled, they refused to allow access to the crash for days. When Ukraine started to reassert control over its territory, Russia gave up the pretense of merely supporting the separatists, and moved troops across the border.

This is a vision of the world in which might makes right — a world in which one nation’s borders can be redrawn by another, and civilized people are not allowed to recover the remains of their loved ones because of the truth that might be revealed. America stands for something different. We believe that right makes might — that bigger nations should not be able to bully smaller ones, and that people should be able to choose their own future.

And these are simple truths, but they must be defended. America and our allies will support the people of Ukraine as they develop their democracy and economy. We will reinforce our NATO Allies and uphold our commitment to collective self-defense. We will impose a cost on Russia for aggression, and we will counter falsehoods with the truth. And we call upon others to join us on the right side of history — for while small gains can be won at the barrel of a gun, they will ultimately be turned back if enough voices support the freedom of nations and peoples to make their own decisions.

Moreover, a different path is available — the path of diplomacy and peace, and the ideals this institution is designed to uphold. The recent cease-fire agreement in Ukraine offers an opening to achieve those objectives. If Russia takes that path — a path that for stretches of the post-Cold War period resulted in prosperity for the Russian people — then we will lift our sanctions and welcome Russia’s role in addressing common challenges. After all, that’s what the United States and Russia have been able to do in past years — from reducing our nuclear stockpiles to meeting our obligations under the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty, to cooperating to remove and destroy Syria’s declared chemical weapons. And that’s the kind of cooperation we are prepared to pursue again — if Russia changes course.

This speaks to a central question of our global age — whether we will solve our problems together, in a spirit of mutual interest and mutual respect, or whether we descend into the destructive rivalries of the past. When nations find common ground, not simply based on power, but on principle, then we can make enormous progress. And I stand before you today committed to investing American strength to working with all nations to address the problems we face in the 21st century.

As we speak, America is deploying our doctors and scientists — supported by our military — to help contain the outbreak of Ebola and pursue new treatments. But we need a broader effort to stop a disease that could kill hundreds of thousands, inflict horrific suffering, destabilize economies, and move rapidly across borders. It’s easy to see this as a distant problem — until it is not. And that is why we will continue to mobilize other countries to join us in making concrete commitments, significant commitments to fight this outbreak, and enhance our system of global health security for the long term.

America is pursuing a diplomatic resolution to the Iranian nuclear issue, as part of our commitment to stop the spread of nuclear weapons and pursue the peace and security of a world without them. And this can only take place if Iran seizes this historic opportunity. My message to Iran’s leaders and people has been simple and consistent: Do not let this opportunity pass. We can reach a solution that meets your energy needs while assuring the world that your program is peaceful.

America is and will continue to be a Pacific power, promoting peace, stability, and the free flow of commerce among nations. But we will insist that all nations abide by the rules of the road, and resolve their territorial disputes peacefully, consistent with international law. That’s how the Asia-Pacific has grown. And that’s the only way to protect this progress going forward.

America is committed to a development agenda that eradicates extreme poverty by 2030. We will do our part to help people feed themselves, power their economies, and care for their sick. If the world acts together, we can make sure that all of our children enjoy lives of opportunity and dignity.

America is pursuing ambitious reductions in our carbon emissions, and we’ve increased our investments in clean energy. We will do our part, and help developing nations do theirs. But the science tells us we can only succeed in combating climate change if we are joined in this effort by every other nation, by every major power. That’s how we can protect this planet for our children and our grandchildren.

In other words, on issue after issue, we cannot rely on a rule book written for a different century. If we lift our eyes beyond our borders — if we think globally and if we act cooperatively — we can shape the course of this century, as our predecessors shaped the post-World War II age. But as we look to the future, one issue risks a cycle of conflict that could derail so much progress, and that is the cancer of violent extremism that has ravaged so many parts of the Muslim world.

Of course, terrorism is not new. Speaking before this Assembly, President Kennedy put it well: “Terror is not a new weapon,” he said. “Throughout history it has been used by those who could not prevail, either by persuasion or example.” In the 20th century, terror was used by all manner of groups who failed to come to power through public support. But in this century, we have faced a more lethal and ideological brand of terrorists who have perverted one of the world’s great religions. With access to technology that allows small groups to do great harm, they have embraced a nightmarish vision that would divide the world into adherents and infidels — killing as many innocent civilians as possible, employing the most brutal methods to intimidate people within their communities.

I have made it clear that America will not base our entire foreign policy on reacting to terrorism. Instead, we’ve waged a focused campaign against al Qaeda and its associated forces — taking out their leaders, denying them the safe havens they rely on. At the same time, we have reaffirmed again and again that the United States is not and never will be at war with Islam. Islam teaches peace. Muslims the world over aspire to live with dignity and a sense of justice. And when it comes to America and Islam, there is no us and them, there is only us — because millions of Muslim Americans are part of the fabric of our country.

So we reject any suggestion of a clash of civilizations. Belief in permanent religious war is the misguided refuge of extremists who cannot build or create anything, and therefore peddle only fanaticism and hate. And it is no exaggeration to say that humanity’s future depends on us uniting against those who would divide us along the fault lines of tribe or sect, race or religion.

But this is not simply a matter of words. Collectively, we must take concrete steps to address the danger posed by religiously motivated fanatics, and the trends that fuel their recruitment. Moreover, this campaign against extremism goes beyond a narrow security challenge. For while we’ve degraded methodically core al Qaeda and supported a transition to a sovereign Afghan government, extremist ideology has shifted to other places — particularly in the Middle East and North Africa, where a quarter of young people have no job, where food and water could grow scarce, where corruption is rampant and sectarian conflicts have become increasingly hard to contain.

As an international community, we must meet this challenge with a focus on four areas. First, the terrorist group known as ISIL must be degraded and ultimately destroyed.

This group has terrorized all who they come across in Iraq and Syria. Mothers, sisters, daughters have been subjected to rape as a weapon of war. Innocent children have been gunned down. Bodies have been dumped in mass graves. Religious minorities have been starved to death. In the most horrific crimes imaginable, innocent human beings have been beheaded, with videos of the atrocity distributed to shock the conscience of the world.

No God condones this terror. No grievance justifies these actions. There can be no reasoning — no negotiation — with this brand of evil. The only language understood by killers like this is the language of force. So the United States of America will work with a broad coalition to dismantle this network of death.

In this effort, we do not act alone — nor do we intend to send U.S. troops to occupy foreign lands. Instead, we will support Iraqis and Syrians fighting to reclaim their communities. We will use our military might in a campaign of airstrikes to roll back ISIL. We will train and equip forces fighting against these terrorists on the ground. We will work to cut off their financing, and to stop the flow of fighters into and out of the region. And already, over 40 nations have offered to join this coalition.

Today, I ask the world to join in this effort. Those who have joined ISIL should leave the battlefield while they can. Those who continue to fight for a hateful cause will find they are increasingly alone. For we will not succumb to threats, and we will demonstrate that the future belongs to those who build — not those who destroy. So that’s an immediate challenge, the first challenge that we must meet.

The second: It is time for the world — especially Muslim communities — to explicitly, forcefully, and consistently reject the ideology of organizations like al Qaeda and ISIL.

It is one of the tasks of all great religions to accommodate devout faith with a modern, multicultural world. No children are born hating, and no children — anywhere — should be educated to hate other people. There should be no more tolerance of so-called clerics who call upon people to harm innocents because they’re Jewish, or because they’re Christian, or because they’re Muslim. It is time for a new compact among the civilized peoples of this world to eradicate war at its most fundamental source, and that is the corruption of young minds by violent ideology.

That means cutting off the funding that fuels this hate. It’s time to end the hypocrisy of those who accumulate wealth through the global economy and then siphon funds to those who teach children to tear it down.

That means contesting the space that terrorists occupy, including the Internet and social media. Their propaganda has coerced young people to travel abroad to fight their wars, and turned students — young people full of potential — into suicide bombers. We must offer an alternative vision.

That means bringing people of different faiths together. All religions have been attacked by extremists from within at some point, and all people of faith have a responsibility to lift up the value at the heart of all great religions: Do unto thy neighbor as you would do — you would have done unto yourself.

The ideology of ISIL or al Qaeda or Boko Haram will wilt and die if it is consistently exposed and confronted and refuted in the light of day. Look at the new Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies — Sheikh bin Bayyah described its purpose: “We must declare war on war, so the outcome will be peace upon peace.” Look at the young British Muslims who responded to terrorist propaganda by starting the “NotInMyName” campaign, declaring, “ISIS is hiding behind a false Islam.” Look at the Christian and Muslim leaders who came together in the Central African Republic to reject violence; listen to the Imam who said, “Politics try to divide the religious in our country, but religion shouldn’t be a cause of hate, war, or strife.”

Later today, the Security Council will adopt a resolution that underscores the responsibility of states to counter violent extremism. But resolutions must be followed by tangible commitments, so we’re accountable when we fall short. Next year, we should all be prepared to announce the concrete steps that we have taken to counter extremist ideologies in our own countries — by getting intolerance out of schools, stopping radicalization before it spreads, and promoting institutions and programs that build new bridges of understanding.

Third, we must address the cycle of conflict — especially sectarian conflict — that creates the conditions that terrorists prey upon.

There is nothing new about wars within religions. Christianity endured centuries of vicious sectarian conflict. Today, it is violence within Muslim communities that has become the source of so much human misery. It is time to acknowledge the destruction wrought by proxy wars and terror campaigns between Sunni and Shia across the Middle East. And it is time that political, civic and religious leaders reject sectarian strife. So let’s be clear: This is a fight that no one is winning. A brutal civil war in Syria has already killed nearly 200,000 people, displaced millions. Iraq has come perilously close to plunging back into the abyss. The conflict has created a fertile recruiting ground for terrorists who inevitably export this violence.

The good news is we also see signs that this tide could be reversed. We have a new, inclusive government in Baghdad; a new Iraqi Prime Minister welcomed by his neighbors; Lebanese factions rejecting those who try to provoke war. And these steps must be followed by a broader truce. Nowhere is this more necessary than Syria.

Together with our partners, America is training and equipping the Syrian opposition to be a counterweight to the terrorists of ISIL and the brutality of the Assad regime. But the only lasting solution to Syria’s civil war is political — an inclusive political transition that responds to the legitimate aspirations of all Syrian citizens, regardless of ethnicity, regardless of creed.

Cynics may argue that such an outcome can never come to pass. But there is no other way for this madness to end — whether one year from now or ten. And it points to the fact that it’s time for a broader negotiation in the region in which major powers address their differences directly, honestly, and peacefully across the table from one another, rather than through gun-wielding proxies. I can promise you America will remain engaged in the region, and we are prepared to engage in that effort.

My fourth and final point is a simple one: The countries of the Arab and Muslim world must focus on the extraordinary potential of their people — especially the youth.

And here I’d like to speak directly to young people across the Muslim world. You come from a great tradition that stands for education, not ignorance; innovation, not destruction; the dignity of life, not murder. Those who call you away from this path are betraying this tradition, not defending it.

You have demonstrated that when young people have the tools to succeed — good schools, education in math and science, an economy that nurtures creativity and entrepreneurship — then societies will flourish. So America will partner with those that promote that vision.

Where women are full participants in a country’s politics or economy, societies are more likely to succeed. And that’s why we support the participation of women in parliaments and peace processes, schools and the economy.

If young people live in places where the only option is between the dictates of a state, or the lure of an extremist underground, then no counterterrorism strategy can succeed. But where a genuine civil society is allowed to flourish — where people can express their views, and organize peacefully for a better life — then you dramatically expand the alternatives to terror.

And such positive change need not come at the expense of tradition and faith. We see this in Iraq, where a young man started a library for his peers. “We link Iraq’s heritage to their hearts,” he said, and “give them a reason to stay.” We see it in Tunisia, where secular and Islamist parties worked together through a political process to produce a new constitution. We see it in Senegal, where civil society thrives alongside a strong democratic government. We see it in Malaysia, where vibrant entrepreneurship is propelling a former colony into the ranks of advanced economies. And we see it in Indonesia, where what began as a violent transition has evolved into a genuine democracy.

Now, ultimately, the task of rejecting sectarianism and rejecting extremism is a generational task — and a task for the people of the Middle East themselves. No external power can bring about a transformation of hearts and minds. But America will be a respectful and constructive partner. We will neither tolerate terrorist safe havens, nor act as an occupying power. We will take action against threats to our security and our allies, while building an architecture of counterterrorism cooperation. We will increase efforts to lift up those who counter extremist ideologies and who seek to resolve sectarian conflict. And we will expand our programs to support entrepreneurship and civil society, education and youth — because, ultimately, these investments are the best antidote to violence.

We recognize as well that leadership will be necessary to address the conflict between Palestinians and Israelis. As bleak as the landscape appears, America will not give up on the pursuit of peace. Understand, the situation in Iraq and Syria and Libya should cure anybody of the illusion that the Arab-Israeli conflict is the main source of problems in the region. For far too long, that’s been used as an excuse to distract people from problems at home. The violence engulfing the region today has made too many Israelis ready to abandon the hard work of peace. And that’s something worthy of reflection within Israel.

Because let’s be clear: The status quo in the West Bank and Gaza is not sustainable. We cannot afford to turn away from this effort — not when rockets are fired at innocent Israelis, or the lives of so many Palestinian children are taken from us in Gaza. So long as I am President, we will stand up for the principle that Israelis, Palestinians, the region and the world will be more just and more safe with two states living side by side, in peace and security.

So this is what America is prepared to do: Taking action against immediate threats, while pursuing a world in which the need for such action is diminished. The United States will never shy away from defending our interests, but we will also not shy away from the promise of this institution and its Universal Declaration of Human Rights — the notion that peace is not merely the absence of war, but the presence of a better life.

I realize that America’s critics will be quick to point out that at times we too have failed to live up to our ideals; that America has plenty of problems within its own borders. This is true. In a summer marked by instability in the Middle East and Eastern Europe, I know the world also took notice of the small American city of Ferguson, Missouri — where a young man was killed, and a community was divided. So, yes, we have our own racial and ethnic tensions. And like every country, we continually wrestle with how to reconcile the vast changes wrought by globalization and greater diversity with the traditions that we hold dear.

But we welcome the scrutiny of the world — because what you see in America is a country that has steadily worked to address our problems, to make our union more perfect, to bridge the divides that existed at the founding of this nation. America is not the same as it was 100 years ago, or 50 years ago, or even a decade ago. Because we fight for our ideals, and we are willing to criticize ourselves when we fall short. Because we hold our leaders accountable, and insist on a free press and independent judiciary. Because we address our differences in the open space of democracy — with respect for the rule of law; with a place for people of every race and every religion; and with an unyielding belief in the ability of individual men and women to change their communities and their circumstances and their countries for the better.

After nearly six years as President, I believe that this promise can help light the world. Because I have seen a longing for positive change — for peace and for freedom and for opportunity and for the end to bigotry — in the eyes of young people who I’ve met around the globe.

They remind me that no matter who you are, or where you come from, or what you look like, or what God you pray to, or who you love, there is something fundamental that we all share. Eleanor Roosevelt, a champion of the UN and America’s role in it, once asked, “Where, after all, do universal human rights begin? In small places,” she said, “close to home — so close and so small that they cannot be seen on any maps of the world. Yet they are the world of the individual person; the neighborhood he lives in; the school or college he attends; the factory, farm or office where he works.”

Around the world, young people are moving forward hungry for a better world. Around the world, in small places, they’re overcoming hatred and bigotry and sectarianism. And they’re learning to respect each other, despite differences.

The people of the world now look to us, here, to be as decent, and as dignified, and as courageous as they are trying to be in their daily lives. And at this crossroads, I can promise you that the United States of America will not be distracted or deterred from what must be done. We are heirs to a proud legacy of freedom, and we’re prepared to do what is necessary to secure that legacy for generations to come. I ask that you join us in this common mission, for today’s children and tomorrow’s.

Thank you very much. (Applause.)
