Obama Affirms Israeli Sovereignty in Jerusalem

Sir, - The refusal of Pres. Obama to speak in the Knesset unfortunately lends itself to a broad range of speculative opinions, none of which can be interpreted as favorable to Israel.

However, Obama's choice of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem as his residence for the duration of his trip at least recognizes the Biblical monarch and the presence of Jewish sovereignty in Jerusalem 1,300 years before the birth of Islam.
