I have just watched our president give a speech to the Israeli public, mostly college students. I think Obama is converting many young Israelis toward a more compassionate government. It was a brilliant speech, especially compared to Bush’s mumbling cliche-filled diatribes. Thank you, Mr. President, for going to a country whose leader tried to have you defeated and converting enemies to friends.
I just hope Israel will take Obama's message of compromise to heart for real peace!
