Obama hopeful on Middle-East peace


news.bbc.co.uk

US President Barack Obama has told the BBC he believes his country can help to get serious Middle East peace negotiations back on track.

His comments, in his first interview with a UK broadcaster, come on the eve of a trip to the Middle East and Europe
On Iran, he said he hoped to see progress by the end of the year, through "tough, direct diplomacy".

But he said rather than imposing its values on other countries the US should act as a role model.

"Not only is it in the interest of the Palestinian people to have a state, it's in the interest of the Israeli people to stabilise the situation there," he said.

"And it's in the interest of the United States that we've got two states living side by side in peace and security."

Asked about Israel's rejection of his call for a halt to Jewish settlements in the West Bank, the president urged patience, saying it was early in the conversation.

yeah, the Iranian response to his previous "messiah" touch, really gives encouragement to his Palestinian/Israeli involvement!

That is laughable, the US is a very bad rolemodel in that sense. My guess it will end in disaster and the whole middle east including Israel will go nuclear on each other.
