Too late.
After such a brilliant and moving speech (did Obama wipe a tear?) he ended in asking for help to bring peace. Unfortunately, that word means different things to the speaker and to the President. Had Rabbi Lau only said, that now, just as in the forties, there is a nation openly stating a goal of our annihilation. "Please, Mr. President, don't be too late."

Any outcoming result depends from the ears of the listener(s) rather than the lips of the speaker.

Americans are always late. It takes time to figure out who is going to win. President Roosevelt declined the offer to trade European Jews for coffee and soap. Do not ever forget it.

Wait but don'T wait.
Great message, but Israel should not depend on others to be there when needed, like the fateful mistake during wwII.
(4/7/2013 10:23:39 AM)

To be at the right place at the right time is an art by it self,
But, also using the right words, at a time, when it is most needed, when anti-Semitism is on the rise in Europe, the Iranians openly declarer they aim, to destroy Israel, Muslims teach they children in kindergarten, and at school to hate the Jews, in the name of Mohammed, so the climate is of an escalation of the Hamas, Hezbollah and Fatah leaders not willing to recognize Israel as a Jewish state , but declare openly that they are the owners of the land( not part but the hole lot) .
I hope and pray that Rabbi Laus words touched President Obamas hart, and he wont be to late.
A great Rabbi and a great leader.

Rabbi Lau is a blessing to all the world....
Let's not be too late...I pray that President Obama's heart was open and the words penetrated...
(4/7/2013 9:27:01 PM)
101
I am proud to be a Jew and always will be.
Education is the only way to move forward. Rabbi Lau is a fine example of a special human being. We have to hope that each day will bring us closer to being accepted to have the right to not only exist, but to flourish and take others who want a better life along with us. That we can be working non-stop to bring about technology, medical miracles and agricultural improvements is something that each Jew must be proud of and share with other.
I am privileged to have worked and contributed in my small way for a decade in the tiny sliver of land that battles every day to survive and flourish. We are in the most unfriendliest neighbourhood on earth. What about admitting the mistake of teaching hatred instead of walking side by side with Israel. Who can blame Israel for being in trepidation of sharing more when our legal right to exist is questioned every day.

Rabbi Lau always says words of wisdom. A true tzadik who survived and is a live example of . But he is so right: we need to CONTINUE to exist and this was his message to the president, in his own special and moving words and voice. , Rinat Newman

Rabbi Lau's generous spirit and words of compassion give all of us hope that the good people of the world can persevere. The young boy at Buchenwald who said kaddish for his parents under the guidance of the American chaplain/rabbi would have made his parents proud as he has all of us. May his words continue to reach all of us and give us hope.
(4/10/2013 8:42:28 PM)
132
Rabbi Lau
As Sec.of State Kerry tries to undermine Israel by taking our land,Rabbi Lau clearly told our President,don't let the Arabs steel another piece of our land through oil bribery..
Look what Obama's policy has caused in the Middle East after his Cairo Speech.
.
It clearly gave the Arabs the green light..It allows the virus to spread.
G-d Bless Rabbi Lau .Zachor...

When will someone say , " you can't have peace until ALL sides respect and recognize each other."

All Arabs must recognize and respect Israel.

Obama is early in encouraging a second Holocaust that Muslims around the world are desiring in the Middle East although they deny that Holocaust in Europe ever happened. It is Qur'an and other Islamic teachings, which as a supremacist ideology similar to supremacist Nazi ideology, including a delusional Jew hatred which is the ROOT cause of terrorism and violence around the world. When Muslims stop teachings their children to hate the Jews and Christians, there will be a possibility for peace in the middle East. Everything else is a delusion based on Muslim lies and wishful thinking of the Jews.

Obama is the grand master of taqiyya-Islamic principle of lying (http://www.islam-watch.org/Warner/Taqiyya-Islamic-Principle-Lying-for-Allah.htm)

Not sure how the USA President is an issue here
Shouldn't Netanyahu be the one to listen and take it to heart? Lau has said in the past that he can accept paths to peace for the region with Israel which essentially got the conservatives all up in arms, and Bibi continues to say he'll work for peace but directs government as if in a constant state of war. Fear keeps conservatives in power in Israel, but that seems quite opposed to what the Rabbi was just offering.

Rabbi Lau is a rabbi for all men
He is very humanistic and I like to hear him although I'm
Atheist . I think that all the religions are the " malediction of the human kind "
(4/14/2013 2:08:28 PM)

Rabbi Lau - in the name of all of us
He is one of his kind. May God give him many healthy years to be around and say his wise words.

Rav Lau should be the next President of Israel. If not for anti-semitism, he would probably qualify for a Nobel Peace Prize or Secretary General of the UN. What a tzadik!

Eleh barekhev ve-eleh basusim...
Obama looked very uncomfortable. Then at one point he was moved, that was the tear. I don't think he was happy at all to hear the last part, about not being too late. The speech was brilliant but ezreinu beshem Hashem, oseh shamayim va-aretz.

Israel always , The land G-d always said is His.

Finaly such a speach!
I was crying when the Rebai Lau spoke in such a beautiful English, and his words were spoken so nicely about such a terrible case, the 2nd World War, and God forbid in future not to be too late.

When morality and politics meet, what happens?
I am continually amazed at the restraint, politeness and humility and understatedness with which men like Lau present their case, in light of the horrors they have seen and endured. I hate to say it, but like some others in the prior posts, I think the speech was wasted on the likes of Obama. He is a cool, calculating, narcissistic and driven politician with a heart of stone. Despite any religious sentiments he may express, it is all Machiavellian; the only God he truly worships is himself. He and his ilk are steadily moving the US in the direction of totalitarian Statism and calculating the value of one human vs another on strictly utilitarian terms. He treated Bibi like you know what and has been caught on tape saying how he detests him. I agree with those who say Israel must not vest hope in anyone or anything but themselves and especially in God Himself.

Good.
Truth cannot by its nature be politically correct although the Rabbi managed to put it clearly most correctly....let us all hope that truth and clarity prevail, even in the most muddled brains.

The ultimate weapon, a.k.a. the atom bomb - thinking the unthinkable
Thank you Rabbi Lau for your plea to Obama. Let us hope that the US will help the IDF destroy ALL the iranian nuke sites before it is too late! Nothing short of military destruction may stop the iranians from bringing about the next "final solution".

From Italy
My grandfather told me many stories about what happened during WW II: German people trampled the rights of poor Italian people, like they made in Holland, France, Poland, etc.
In 1943 U.S. Army started from the South of Italy liberating our Country from Germans. In April 1945 we were free!
We must always say THANKS AMERICA and we'll never forget

Honor men of faith.
Let's trust and be happy for powerful men such as these and trust that their words will be honored with full purpose of conscience. If the Rabbi speaks such kind words to President Obama, let us back him up and be so kind ourselves to the President. Can we pray for them all. They need our prayers.

what a wonderful speech i just hope obama knows what the rabbi is saying, Israel shouldn't have to get on her knees and beg...i believe obama is the worst president for america and Israel..i just hope he does right by them..

That's it!Rabbi Lau is right.In the thirtees nobody wanted to know about the seriousness of the problem-Hitler became the Man of the World by Time magazine in 1934!
In 1945 the liberators could have liberated the camps much before...they did not.
And now?Similar indifference,vagueness...giving time to enemies for preparations.The attitude of int.comm.repeats itself.Even Netanjahu's speech at UN is not enough to shake up the world.
