Read & watch Obama' s historic MENA speech

US president Obama' s historic speech on the upheavals in the Middle East' and North Africa can' now be' read and' also' watched on the Net. Besides chiding Bahrain for its repression against the protestors, the American president also reiterated the view that Iran is "hypocritical" for supporting the Arab Uprising while muzzling its own opposition at home and helping Syria to respond to' public protests in' similar ways. Saudi Arabia, however, seems to have evaded Obama's' radar screen.
