Obama made us proud in Israel

(Continued)

Even while asserting that “those who adhere to the ideology of rejecting Israel’s right to exist … might as well reject the earth beneath them or the sky above, because Israel is not going anywhere,” Obama told his young audience: “Neither occupation nor expulsion is the answer. Just as Israelis built a state in their homeland, Palestinians have a right to be a free people in their own land.”

Peace remains elusive, of course, but we can be proud of a president who said what needed to be said … from one friend to another.
