D- Bark Bark Woof Woof shares his thoughts on President Obama's Cairo speech.
What I think, though, that will resonate the longest from this speech -- and from whatever actions follow -- is that America will no longer hide behind the charade of "honest broker" while at the same time not really being one: taking Israel's side no matter what they do and failing to recognize the simple fact that the Palestinians have as much a right to a homeland as does anyone else. Basically the president was telling all sides in the Middle East that the time for finger-pointing and blaming is over. He also made it clear that the back-room dealing is also over, basically, because [...] once you are perceived as being on one side or the other, no one buys the "honest broker" line anymore.
