President Obama joined President Abbas today in Ramallah to deliver remarks to the Palestinian people. A full transcript
is below but I would highlight the paragraph below in case you don’t have time to read the speech in its entirety. Please share this with your friends and colleagues.
The Palestinian people deserve an end to occupation and the daily indignities that come with it. Palestinians deserve to move and travel freely, and to feel secure in their communities. Like people everywhere, Palestinians deserve a future of hope -- that their rights will be respected, that tomorrow will be better than today and that they can give their children a life of dignity and opportunity. Put simply, Palestinians deserve a state of their own.
