President Obama's Full Speech in Jerusalem

I've visited Israel twice, and I've also visited Palestine once. I'm really hoping that people everywhere can have peaceful lives.




"Peace is the only path to true security."

"Given the march of technology, the only way to truly protect the Israeli people is through the absence of war -- because no wall is high enough, and no Iron Dome is strong enough, to stop every enemy from inflicting harm. "

"Peace will have to be made among people, not just governments."

"Political leaders will not take risks if the people do not demand that they do."

"You must create the change that you want to see."

"Put yourself in their shoes -- look at the world through their eyes."
