Seems like Dear Leader's spin on Netanyahu's speech is at odds with the Palestinians take on it.Palestinian disappointment was echoed in capitals across the Arab world, where leaders accused Netanyahu of setting more obstacles in the path of an already stymied peace process.

Hilarious, hahaha, Obama screws the Brits.
