WASHINGTON (CNN) – President Barack Obama has invited key leaders in the Middle East to Washington in the coming weeks for consultations on the peace process, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Tuesday.
Obama wants to meet separately with Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Gibbs told reporters.
Dates for the visits are still being worked out, he said.
Obama met with Jordan's King Abdullah II Tuesday.
Yet another step in the right direction.
Good work Mr. President.
Hope he takes his back meds before they get here... that's a lot of bowing.
This is all a cover to get the leader of the Palestinians in his office. He doesn't care about Egypt, Jordan or Israel, he only cares about helping Palestine achieve its objective of taking Jerusalem back.
Pres. Obama is smart to meet with them separately. This reminds of Catholic pre-marriage counselling. The priest talks to the would be bride and groom separately to get their views on, e.g. child rearing. If one says he is for and the other is against, this gives the priest an indication that trouble is brewing before they enter into this holy bond. Just my thoughts.
Romney was quick topen his mouth earlier. The President's foreign policy is going just fine. There's no Obama Doctrine. At least he's restoring our tarnished image.
The nay sayers and constant critics on the far-right will complain, but I am glad that our president is reaching our to both friend and foe.
The ONLY way to beat Islamic terrorists is to win over the hearts and minds of the people of the Middle East.
Gandhi a man who fire not one shot, and changed his country, said,
"We must be the change we want to see in the world."
Bush's arrogance, wars and name calling ONLY served to HELP recruit more ........... terrorists!
Bowing down to his Masters.
Don't forget to bow.
