US President Barack Obama said "strategies of oppression...will not work anymore." Speaking on the fall of the Egyptian and Tunisian rulers following popular uprisings in the last few months,  Obama commented that "antagonism towards Israel became only political outlet" in these countries, and that populations were not longer willing to accept the social suppression.

Obama, commenting on the new political developments in the Middle East, said "it will be years before this story will reach its end," encountering "good days" and "bad days."
