NEW YORK (WIFR) -- "Peace must be made by Israelis and Palestinians, but each of us has a responsibility to do our part as well." said Mr. Obama.
The president urged friends of Israel to accept a Palestinian state and asked Arab nations to support the Palestinian authority politically and financially. The commander in chief says US led negotiations can produce results if the international community sets aside decades of division and pessimism.
President Obama also touted the United States role in pulling the global economy back from the brink.
