FLASHBACK: President Obama Middle East Speech May 19, 2011

In a long and vague speech about the Middle East Thursday, Obama said he believes Israelis and Palestinians want to look forward -- moments after saying U.S. policy is that Israel and Palestine should go back to the 1967 borders.

"I’m convinced that the majority of Israelis and Palestinians would rather look to the future than be trapped in the past," Obama said, advocating for a two-state solution.

He also talked about how the U.S. will funnel help into Egypt -- through relieving a debt of democratic Egypt up to $1 billion and guarantee $1 billion in borrowing needed to finance infrastructure and job creation.

I'm feeling pretty good about Obama relieving Egypt of $1 billion they owe us right about now while undercutting Israel, the only true democracy in the Middle East. How about you?

 

 

 

Disappointing yet totally predictable.
