Meretz Chairman Haim Oron praised on Thursday the speech delivered by US President Barack Obama in Cairo, saying that it represented a kind of inspiration which had been lost in the Middle East. "Obama's speech was characterized by inspiration, optimism, and a great drive which seems to have disappeared from the region," he said. "The American president's speech is a lesson in progressive understanding, restraint, and great hope."
