Nail Biter

Obama's last-ditch diplomatic effort won praise from Israel, which will rely on Washington to block the Palestinian U.N. membership bid, but drew a bitter response from the Palestinians, who said it violated the spirit of the "Arab spring" revolts and showed no sign of backing down.

  Raw Story

Glad to hear it.

Obama followed his speech with a round of talks with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who echoed the president's assertion that negotiations were the only path to a peace deal but offered no new ideas on how to restart talks.

By negotiations he means, Israel will keep building settlements in Palestinian territory and making it impossible for them to eke out a decent living, and Palestinians will suck it up.

....but hey, do what you will anyway.
