JTA’s Capital J Blog has launched their coverage with the full video and text of President Obama’s speech, as well as footage of a small group of rabbis and pro-Israel activists arrested for protesting in the streets. Capital J should be continuing their coverage all week.

The Jerusalem Post has extensive coverage of the assembly from both UN headquarters and the reactions in Israel.
