How Obama Orchestrated a Ceasefire

Ynetnews notes that while little was heard from President Obama during the military confrontation between Israel and Hamas, behind the scenes, while visiting Burma and Cambodia, he was working overtime to pressure both sides into agreeing to truce.

"Throughout his trip in South East Asia he was constantly on the phone with both Morsi and Netanyahu, before and after his meetings with the leaders of China and Japan. The president even made time to speak with both leaders during a dinner held as part of a summit of East Asian leaders."

"His goal - creating the conditions needed for a ceasefire. Publically he praised Morsi and Netanyahu, and behind the scenes he was pressuring them to bring the conflict between Israel and Hamas to an end."
