Obama, at Ramadan Dinner, Decries Mideast Bloodshed
By CAROL E. LEE President Barack Obama, lamenting the heart-wrenching violence in the Middle East, said Monday the U.S. will work to forge a cease-fire between the Israelis and Palestinians and welcomed a proposal put forward by Egypt.
Mr. Obama, speaking Monday at a White House dinner marking the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, said Israel has a right to defend itself against rocket attacks from Hamas, but called the deaths of Palestinian civilians a tragedy.
I believe further escalation benefits no one, least of all the Israeli and the Palestinian people, Mr. Obama said. So were going to continue doing everything we can to facilitate a return to the 2012 cease-fire. We are encouraged that Egypt has made a proposal to accomplish this goal, which we hope can restore the calm that weve been seeking.
Ultimately, Mr. Obama said, the conflict will only be resolved through a broader peace deal between the Israelis and Palestinians. Mr. Obama had pursued such a deal, but talks have stalled.
His comments Monday were his most substantive since violence broke out in Israel and Gaza. The president is facing a series of foreign policy crises at once, and noted that many of them are taking place in the Middle East, including Syria and Iraq.

847 days to go! Will America survive?
How much longer, Lord?
After six years, I suspect Obama is the laughing stock of the world.
another Moslem festival or dinner or meeting or prayer service or rally or speech or ??? for our Immigrant-in-Chief?
he sure was honest when he told us his views about how super-wonderful Islam is
Half breed Kenyan Marxist scum spews feces out of both orifices.
Shut up Barry! Please shut up! Your voice is very annoying to the majority of Americans. You and Hillary started all this crap with your “Arab Spring” reset button fiasco.
More cheerleading for his Beloved Arabs (and scr*w the Jews).
They were weak because of their lack of unity and ended up with the least valuable land around. NO ONE want that dry, nasty, mosquito infested pit hole and the Bedu got it because it was all that was left.
Whodda thunk that under all that nasty bug infested pest hole sand trap there was all the petroleum and natural gas that the FIRST world would someday want/need? The GULF area is HUMID, nasty and mosquito infested with dreadful bugs that JUMP out of the sand (or my closet) and BITE! One bugger jumped 10 feet from out of the closet.
The Bedu HAD to be nasty people just to survive in that God-forsaken pit hole.
Whodda EVER thunk that those pitiful Bedu would end up as the WEALTHIEST humans on the planet in ALL of human history?
God REALLY works in mysterious ways.
Sigh. Is it THAT long away?
We will survive, no doubt. He does GREAT damage but he WILL go away.
God help us.
NO, it's already dead. The corpse-kicking will continue, however.
The Gaza population of about 1.7 million needs 40,000 “clerks” from just one organization? Thats almost 1 for every 40 people.
It takes a lot of clerks to carry stuff through the tunnels ... LOL ...
The walrus wiped a tear from his face,
And swallowed another oyster.
