President Obama yesterday spoke to 2,000 young people (and to Israel, Palestine, and the world beyond) at the Jerusalem International Convention Center.

I believe it is worth your time, 50:33 minutes, to see and hear his speech in its entirety, particularly the second half.  (if the link to the video does not appear below this paragraph, you can get to it at Video: US-Israel Relations, CSpan.)

It is also possible to read the speech, although in so doing, you miss two important parts of the presentation, the manner in which President Obama presented his words and appeals and the reaction of the 2,000 young people in the audience (chosen by lottery).
