Citing the risks of further delay, Jordan's King Abdullah II said Wednesday the United States must take the lead in creating conditions for a permanent peace between Israel and the Palestinians. Speaking to a joint meeting of Congress, Abdullah said that history has shown no progress in Middle East peacemaking is possible without American leadership. "We look to you to play a historic role," he said, adding that results are needed "not in one year or five years but this year." "No more bloodshed, no more lives pointlessly taken," Abdullah declared.
