Obama Urges Israel to Make ‘Hard Choices’ to Pursue Peace

President Barack Obama challenged the Israeli government to make “hard choices” to pursue peace with Palestinians and said the upheaval in the Middle East creates a new urgency for negotiations.

“Delay will undermine Israel’s security and the peace that the Israeli people deserve,” Obama said in an address yesterday in Washington to the nation’s largest pro-Israel lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee.
