Ross: Obama Visit 'Creates' Opportunity


American diplomat Dennis Ross said, Sunday, that President Barack Obama's scheduled visit to Israel creates an opportunity for Obama to connect with the Israeli people.

Participating in a discussion with diplomat Elliott Abrams at the policy conference of the America Israel Public Action Committee, he said the connection was important relating to the Iranian nuclear threat, the situation in Syria, and support for the Palestinian Authority so that it does not become an Islamist entity.
