    Congratulations President Obama.

    You did us proud in Israel. You did more to promote peace in the Middle East with a single visit than Bush did with all the lives, talent, and treasure that he wasted over eight years.

      • There is no such thing as a standing ovation of boo's. It was a standing ovation but perhaps you're blinded by your political preconceptions.

        The Economist said: "Mr Obama scored with the Israeli public—and well beyond the confines of the hard-core "peace camp"—principally because he embraced in this speech the Israeli narrative of what has gone wrong in the peace process."

        Wolf Blitzer called it: "‘One Of The Most Important An American President’ Has Given On Israel"

        The Daily Beast: "Today President Obama made the most passionate, and compassionate, case for Israeli-Palestinian peace any U.S. leader has ever made."

        The Daily Beast: "in many ways (although not all) the perfect speech when it comes to Israel".

        Fox News: "President Obama received a standing ovation from the crowd when he responded to a protester who began heckling him and shouting during a speech in Jerusalem on Thursday."

    • Great post vinnie.
