HANNITY: The biggest supporter of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu blurred my thoughts. GIBBS. Ayers and Dohrn used their celebrity status among leftists to launch Obama's relations with the conservative Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and.
Netanyahu is unabashedly sectoral. His rhetoric over the past six years is dominated by endlessly repeated platitudes about Jewish history and Jewish rights.
Even when he offers a rhetorical olive branch, as in his famous speech at Bar-Ilan University, he refuses to include language that accepts as a matter of principle the legitimacy of competing narratives. Basically what you got here is Koreans and Arabs running the stores, the Jews still owning most of the buildings.
When we hear one of them Koreans is mistreating a customer, we gonna be on the case. We gonna insist that they respect us and make a contribution back to the community—fund our programs, what have you. Netanyahu, too, despises Obama. And Israel stands to pay a heavy price for that personality quirk, not only in the mismanaged peace efforts but in the far more dangerous battleground of the Iran crisis.
Netanyahu grew up in the identity politics that have confounded Obama. He grasps as his American counterpart cannot the role that narratives of national identity play in domestic and international politics. This understanding has convinced him that peace with the Palestinians cannot be achieved without legitimation.
Unless the Palestinian national movement becomes able to accept that there is some legitimacy to the Jewish claim to a homeland in Israel, Palestinian leaders will remain frozen in place and unable to compromise for peace. For Netanyahu, then, any American strategy that begins with Israeli concessions instead of seeking a shift in the basic narrative of the other side puts the cart before the horse — and all but ensures continued failure.
It must be said: For Netanyahu, too, the political costs of compromise are not small, and will only grow as Palestinian politics remains hunkered down in their rejectionist narrative.

He quoted from the Quran"Be conscious of God and always speak the truth. He described his own personal experiences with Islam, including having Muslim family members, growing up in Indonesiaa majority-Muslim country and hearing "the call of the azaan ", and working "in Chicago communities where many found dignity and peace in their Muslim faith".
On the subject of the Iraq WarObama stated, "Although I believe that the Iraqi people are ultimately better off without the tyranny of Saddam HusseinI also believe that events in Iraq have reminded America of the need to use diplomacy and build international consensus to resolve our problems whenever possible.

Amr Moussahead of the Arab Leaguehailed the speech, saying it "was balanced and offered a new vision of rapprochement regarding relations with Islamic states". Israeli President Shimon Peres said the speech was "full of vision, a brave speech demanding a commitment to hard work on all sides involved in the promotion of the peace process in the Middle East The idea of peace was born in the Middle East as the basis of the three monotheistic religions — Christianity, Judaism and Islam — and the sons of Abraham must join hands in order to take on this challenge together, a sustainable peace in the Middle East.
The Israeli government is not some overlapping excess of the US administration. It has been a long standing demand of Pakistan that the two-nation theory is the only way forward out of the Middle East crisis". He further went on to say, "We see this visit as a very positive step on the part of US because over the years there has been proverbial chasm between the Western and Islamic world.
So this visit will be useful in bridging gaps between the Muslim and the Western world.
I say firmly, that this will not be achieved by talking, speech and slogans". Iraqi Shiite cleric Moqtada al-Sadr also criticized it.
