Dissecting Obama's UN speech

Palestinian-American journalist says president should be judged by Middle East actions.



    Barack Obama, the US president, has urged countries in the United Nations to get behind Middle East peace efforts in an address at the UN General Assembly.

    But Ali Hasan Abunimah, a Palestinian-American journalist and co-founder of Electronic Intifada, an independent website about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, said Obama's speech did not represent anything new.

    "That bodes very ill for the peace process that he's so invested in," Abunimah told Al Jazeera's Shihab Rattansi, speaking from the US state of Indiana.

    "Let's judge him not by what he says, but what he does."
