President Obama sought to usher in a new U.S. relationship with the Middle East, promising economic aid to nations engaged in democratic reforms and calling out by name the region's most belligerent rulers.
President Obama sought Thursday to usher in a new U.S. relationship with the Middle East, promising economic aid to nations engaged in democratic reforms and calling out by name the region's most belligerent rulers.
President Obama said Tuesday that it's "more vital than ever" for Israel and the Palestinians to restart peace talks, as he plunged again into Mideast diplomacy with hopes of reaching an elusive accord.
This White House, like its predecessors, can take some comfort in the fact that the Middle East has been breaking the hearts of diplomats and foreign politicians for at least 2,000 years. Of course, some centuries have been worse than others. (Pontius Pilate had a particularly difficult inning.) But in modern times, the American voting public has become accustomed to seeing regular news from the Middle East feature wars, terrorism, mayhem, religious fanaticism and failed peace initiatives.
Thousands of Palestinian demonstrators clashed with Israeli security forces on three hostile borders Sunday in an unprecedented wave of protests marking an annual ritual against the founding of the Jewish state in 1948.
Former Sen. George Mitchell announced his resignation Friday as the U.S. special envoy to the Mideast at a time of turmoil in the region and fruitless attempts at Israeli-Palestinian peace talks.
Roger Clemens says he's eager to defend himself in federal court this summer.
The U.S. will not be deterred by setbacks and will persevere until a Palestinian state is established alongside Israel, President Obama's Middle East envoy said Tuesday after meeting the Palestinian president.
