So, who said the following?:
"It will be the policy of the United States to promote reform across the region, and to support transitions to democracy."
Or, this guy?
Check out Charles Krauthammer's take on President Obama's at-times, very Bushian Middle East speech he made last week, here.
As an addendum, here is Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, wrapping up his visit with the President also from last week.
"We share your hope and your vision for the spread of democracy in the Middle East."
(Pre-1967 boundaries) "...were not the boundaries of peace, they were the boundaries of repeated wars because the attacks on Israel were so attractive from them."
"The Israeli government cannot negotiate with a Palestinian government that is backed by Hamas."
On the precariousness of the "peace process": "History will not give the Jewish people another chance".
Exit question: Given the fact that much of Israel's opposites are informed by a belief and ideology that wants to wipe Israel clean off the map and will not rest until that is accomplished (pre-1967 borders... like, whatever), how galling must it be for Israel to feel compelled to participate in the Kabuki theater that is this so-called peace process?
