Politico: A day after his big Cairo speech, President Obama is saying 'the moment is now' for action on Mideast peace. 'I am confident that if we stick with it, having started early, we can make some serious progress this year,' Obama said this morning at a joint news conference in Dresden with German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"I want to be very, very clear, however: I understand and agree with the analysis of the problem. There is an imminent threat. It manifested itself on 9/11. It's real and grave. It is as serious a threat as Stalinism and National Socialism were. Let's not pretend it isn't." ~~~~~Bono~~~~~
