    Treatment of the Palestinians “is not fair,” President Obama said in Jerusalem today. He also promised the U.S. would always back Israel.

    Arab states must seek normalized relations with Israel, and Palestinians must “recognize that Israel will be a Jewish state, and that Israelis have the right to insist upon their security,” Obama said, adding that “Israelis must recognize that continued settlement activity is counterproductive to the cause of peace, and that an independent Palestine must be viable — that real borders will have to be drawn.”

    Obama said people, not politicians, create peace. “You must create the change that you want to see.”

    JERUSALEM – It took four years and a second term, but President Obama finally traveled to Israel on Wednesday for a richly symbolic state visit, bearing a message of solidarity to a wary Israeli public, and a promise to defend Israel from threats near and far.

    “Shalom,” Mr. Obama said, after embracing President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who waited for him on a red carpet under the looming shadow of Air Force One at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion Airport.

    “I see this visit as an opportunity to reaffirm the unbreakable bonds between our nations,” the president declared in a stately arrival ceremony, after Mr. Peres and Mr. Netanyahu both offered thanks to the United States for standing by its ally.

    Mr. Obama did not mention the Palestinians by name in his brief remarks, speaking instead of Israel’s “neighbor.” Nor did he allude to Iran or Syria, the other top items on his agenda. But he invoked the Jewish people’s 3,000-year history in this land, referred to modern Israelis as “the sons of Abraham and the daughters of Sarah.”
