Haaretz said the op-ed was intended for the newspaper’s upcoming peace summit. The White House told The Associated Press the op-ed was written before June 30 — the day the three Israeli teens were found dead — but later updated to reflect more recent events. Writing in emotional terms, Obama said he couldn’t imagine the pain suffered by the parents of the three Israeli teens, but was also heartbroken by the senseless murder of a Palestinian teenager who many suspect was killed as payback. “All parties must protect the innocent and act with reasonableness and restraint, not official website vengeance and retribution,” Obama said. Obama didn’t mention Tariq Abu Khdeir, the cousin of the murdered Palestinian, who was arrested after clashing with Israeli forces. The State Department has said it’s “deeply troubled” by reports that Abu Khdeir, a Palestinian-American, was badly beaten while in custody.

Obama Seeks $3.7 Billion To Deal With Border Kids : NPR

Obama plans to discuss the crisis with faith and local leaders during a political fundraising visit to Texas Wednesday, but he is resisting calls to visit the border for a firsthand look. The White House invited Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry, who is among those urging Obama to get to the border while he’s in the state, to Wednesday’s meeting in Dallas. Perry’s spokeswoman Lucy Nashed confirmed that Perry and Obama will meet. Perry “is pleased that President Obama has accepted his invitation to discuss the humanitarian and national security crisis along our southern border,” Nashed said. House Appropriations Committee Chairman Hal Rogers, a Republican, called the situation on the border “extremely dire.” “It is clear that additional funding will be needed to ensure the proper care of these unaccompanied children, to enforce the law, and to further secure our border so that these problems can be mitigated in the short term,” he said in a statement.
