WASHINGTON – President Shimon Peres urged members of the US Congress Wednesday to ensure that America support for the democratic forces and struggling economies in the Arab world so that a moment of opportunity will not be lost.

"We believe that the awakening of the Arab world is a great opportunity and that all of us should do whatever we can [to help],” Peres said following a meeting with House leaders before heading over to the Senate. "The moment that the Arab world will become free and open and peaceful it will be a major change in the world experience and in the annals of the Middle East.”
