Obama Says it is Now 'hard to Find a Path' on Israeli-Palestinian Peace

President Barack Obama said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's pre-election disavowal of a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict makes it "hard to find a path" toward serious negotiations to resolve the issue. In an interview with the Huffington Post, Obama described his Thursday phone call with Netanyahu, two days after the Israeli leader was re-elected, saying, "I did indicate to him that we continue to believe that a two-state solution is the only way for the long-term security of Israel, if it wants to stay both a Jewish state and democratic."
