You know, President Obama's speech sounded real nice. And I think that there is what to say for America trying to make dialogue with the muslim people. HOWEVER, Talk/ dialogue is NOT ENOUGH.
I have one question for President Obama. He mentionerd the 30000 Americans who lost their lives on 9/11. Did talking about peace make any changes for him with the Taliban? NO. So why in the world does he think telling Hamas that it isn't nice to blow up Grandmothers on buses will help? Israel has accepted and implemented cease-fires numerous times, only to have Hamas ignore them. If the US wants us to make an ACTION like a settlement freeze, I would like to see ACTION on the part of Hamas:
12 No terrorist attacks . NONE .
2. Stoppage of indoctrinating youth and KIDS to violence. (If you don't know what I am talking about, see this example).
West bank Mama said it pretty well.
And Israel would probably give up even a lot of the settlements, for a real peace.
But not for a "promise" of Peace.
