Obama is talking with the same rulers who have oppressed their people for so long. In addition, the supposedly harsh words about the Israelis settlements, they will nothing but words. Israel is not listening. Obama’s words are for public consumption.
If President Obama wanted to do something different, he will put human rights and democracy first before talking the repressive regimes that are in power in a region that goes from Morocco to Syria.
President Obama, where is the change you promised?
