While every Palestinian who aspires for peace would appreciate these vows by the US president, everyone at the same time would question the validity of such vows. Palestinians have been suffering for a long time. Their sons killed and arrested, their homes demolished, some annexed, and many other forms of persecution. Questioning such vows stems from the fact that the Pals struggle continued over time in front of the eyes of the US and the rest of the world with nothing to do but denying and vowing to fix this situation. Mr. Obama, you have inspired many nations in this world, and its an opportunity for you to bring back the rights of Palestinians and by that you stop their suffering. Pals are not asking to destroy Israel, they just need their freedom and independence. You can do that and you can end this conflict.
