Under the shadow of fresh violence, President Barack Obama
solemnly convened the first direct Israeli-Palestinian talks in two years Wednesday, challenging Mideast leaders to seize a fleeting opportunity to deliver peace to a region haunted by decades of hostility.
""I am hopeful, cautiously hopeful, but hopeful," Obama said with the leaders of Jordan, Egypt, Israel
and the Palestinians beside him in the crowded East Room of the White House
. Earlier Obama had met with each individually, and they gathered afterward for dinner.
"The mood appeared cordial as the leaders commenced the talks aimed at creating a sovereign Palestinian state beside a secure Israel."
