Take a look at how many of the reporters prefaced their questions:
- Q Well, thank you for your speech. I'm sure that the Palestinians are overwhelmed by some of the things that you have said regarding the Palestinian issue, specifically about the settlements.
- Q (As translated.) I think your speech was wonderful and more -- above and beyond everybody was expecting. And you have talked about the Middle East and the future of this region. You also spoke about the commitment of the United States towards achieving progress towards special issues. I also believe there are some difficulties. I might want to be much more precise.
Q First of all, Mr. President, I want to congratulate you for a great speech.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you.
Q I believe that everybody in the region listened to it, including in my country.
