For analysis on President Obama’s Middle East address, Democracy Now! hosts a roundtable discussion with author Norman Finkelstein, Palestinian human rights lawyer Noura Erakat and Jeremy Ben-Ami, head of the lobby group, J Street. In his speech, President Obama said a Palestinian state must be based on the 1967 borders, the first time a U.S. president has explicitly taken this position.
