Jordan's king: US credibility under question

clipped from
In CNN interview, King Abdullah says Obama's 'undivided attention desperately needed' in order to set right tone for Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. He warns against crossing 'invisible line', missing out on two-state option

Abdullah warned against "crossing an invisible line in the sand", after which the viability of a two-state solution will no longer be there. "I hope we haven’t crossed it yet, but when, God forbid, we do cross that line, then I think we doom the Middle East and the region to many decades of instability. So the time we spend talking and not solving this problem, we all pay the price."

The Jordanian king spoke about his meetings with Israeli people. "On many occasions I've sat down with Israelis to say, 'Where do you see your country in 10 years time?' Not Israeli has ever been able to answer that question. Because of the security threat, they think of the 'here and now'. They can only think of today. When is the next attack, when is the next bomb.
