Same speech, different headlines

The front-page headlines of all three main Israeli dailies trumpet yesterday’s Obama speech, with varying ideological perspectives.

Haaretz leads with, “Obama turns to Israelis in a historic speech – Demand peace from your leaders.”

Maariv’s headline is, “Obama: The Palestinians must recognize that Israel is a Jewish state.”

Yediot Ahronot, the country’s biggest daily, chose the key phrase from Obama’s speech: “You are not alone.”
