    Really Obama? Who appointed you the policeman of the world? You have no right to decide for the Palestinians or anyone else what they can or can not do and you can not decide what borders will be determined as a Palestinian state. The borders for a Palestinian state should be the borders that were drawn up by the UN prior to 1948 or the borders that the Palestinian people will agree on. What you need to do is to stop your blind support for Israel and it's criminal actions against the Palestinians and against other nations in the Middle East. What you need to do is to change your racist attitude towards the Palestinian people and the Arab world. What you need to do is to change America to become a democratic state when it comes to international issues and not to continue on the path of being democratic only when it suits America and Israel. You may speak nicely and your words may show that America cares for others, but your actions speak louder than words and so far America's actions are far from what your nicely worded speech.
