Peres praises Obama's address to Muslim world in Cairo

President Shimon Peres praised Barack Obama following the US president's address to the Muslim world on Thursday. "Obama's speech was a speech filled with a vision, [it was] a brave speech which promises hard work for all of the sides involved in advancing the peace process in the Middle East. "The idea of peace was born in the Middle East and is a basic term [used] in the three monotheistic religions - Christianity, Judaism and Islam - and it is up to the children of Abraham to join hands in order to meet the challenge together - sustainable peace in the Middle East."
