Israel: “We’re Delighted that Obama’s Coming”


orenWhen asked about President Obama’s announced trip to Israel, Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren said this week: “We’re delighted that he’s coming. President Obama was always welcome in Israel. He’ll be received enthusiastically by the government of Israel, by the prime minister of Israel, by the people of Israel. The White House has made very clear that the purpose of the trip is to strengthen an already historic bond between Israel and the United States. I think it will send a powerful message to the Middle East at a time of great uncertainty and upheaval throughout the region, and I think that is the purpose of the trip.”

“At the end of the day, peace has to be made between Israelis and Palestinians. That’s the way we made peace with Egypt back in the ’70s, the way we made peace with Jordan in the ’90s….We’ve been waiting for the Palestinians to sit with us for the last four years.”
