Pres Hussein Obama ignores the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in his UN speech - the Final stab coming soon? (JPost).
It seems now, that the only thing worse than too much attention, is no attention at all.For the first time since taking office in 2009, US President Barack Obama failed to mention the Israeli-Palestinian conflict during his annual address to the UN General Assembly in New York.
Last year, as he stood at the same podium, Obama assured the international community that as “bleak as the landscape” appeared to be in the Middle East, America would “never give up the pursuit of peace” between Israelis and Palestinians.
But on Monday, during his 43 minute speech to the UNGA, the president was suddenly silent on the matter, awakening Israeli fears that his attention will be elsewhere in the last year-and-a-half of his presidency.
True, these addresses are not a full-proof blueprint for future US foreign policy. Hmmm......Considering the past six years, his 'Love' for Israel can only get worse. Read the full story here.
