President Clinton decried intolerance during the annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington. Citing examples on the world stage where reconciliation is needed, he said, “In the Middle East, with all its hope, we are still having to work very hard to overcome the profoundest of suspicions between Israeli Jews and Palestinian and Syrian Arabs.” Turning to the domestic arena, he added, “Here at home we still see Asians, blacks, gays, even in one instance last year children at a Jewish school, subject to attacks just because of who they are.”
