Missing from Obama's speech: 1) Palestinians have never in all of history controlled the city of Jerusalem or any part of it. Therefor they must work with an Israeli peace partner to insure access the pray at the holy sites and not call for sovereignty as the site is the holiest for Jews. The city must remain united. 2) Palestinian refugees will, if they choose, return to Palestine and not Israel. The countries currently hosting them must give those remaining to stay full rights as citizens. Avoiding the two items above will bring the region to war and Obama will have to take a significant part of the blame, not that this will help those who will be killed.
