    Obama, we can not demand peace from our leaders because our leaders do not want peace and as long as America supports the criminal leaders that we have in power, there will never be any peace. What should really be, is that America can tell our leaders to makle a just peace and if they do not, let them know that you and your government will stop supporting Israel and stop sending aid to Israel. America has the power to do this and make the neccesary changes to bring about peace but it always chooses to support opressive leaders and criminal governments. And all this garbage about 'that now was the time for the Arab world to 'take steps toward normalizing relations' with the Jewish state' you can tell your American public this because it is Israel who does not want to make peace with the Arab nations, not the other way like you try to make the rest of us believe.
