Obama: Hold Israel, Palestinians Accountable


obama3The White House says President Barack Obama has called Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas to congratulate him on the start of U.S.-brokered peace talks with Israel and confirm he intends to hold both sides accountable for any actions that would undermine trust during the talks.

The two leaders discussed the need for both parties to negotiate in good faith and move from indirect so-called “proximity” talks to direct negotiations as soon as possible, the White House said today.

Obama also reiterated his support for establishing an independent Palestinian state alongside Israel and urged Abbas to try to prevent any “acts of incitement or delegitimization of Israel.”

Obama told Abbas he looks forward to receiving him at the White House soon.

  1. Obama has plenty of things to Fix-up here in America, He should not try to play the “Change game” with Israel.

  2. HaKol BiYedei Shamayim. We need a lot of Siyatta D’Shmaya right now. For the first time in my life, I have trepidation of the way this country is turning. We see it internally — blatant anti-Semitism, and against Israel. No other president spoke this way or treated Israel’s leaders in the humiliating way Obama has and continues to do.

  3. Just the site of Obama makes me depressed and scared. We must do more teshuva, have more ahavas yisroel and daven that moshiach will be here asap

  4. to #5 how many times have you seen the site of obama (whitehouse.gov) that it makes you so depressed?
    you know, it’s not only his site, he shares it with others also.

  5. i told all the people who said their voting for obama that he’ll be a horrible president in every way possible and they didn’t listen and look now…

  6. Israel can talk to Obama or Abbas but the BOTTOM LINE is the palestanians will never make peace with Israel , based on the prophets that said that Bnei Yishmael will be the last ones to fight us Before MASHIACH comes. That includes the U.S.A. (which is now in the Hands of a muslim sent by Hashem OBAMA) & all muslim countries including Iran, Iraq, Saudia Arabia, Pakistan etc…

  7. i dont seem to get whats wrong he is just trying to make a peace treaty and he dosnt want any breakup in the middle like in 2008 when israel started atacking gaza in the middle of indirect peace talks
