The more reviews we get, the worse is the spirit of the Netanyahu speech. Writes Rob Browne (rbguy at Dailykos):

It was quite a horrible speech (laying all the blame on the Arab nations’ 1948 partition decision (with no context mentioned), continued expansion of settlements, Jewish only Jerusalem, lack of return for Palestinian refugees, demilitarized state with no ability to forge treaties, etc. I laughed, I cried, I yelled — sounds like the tag line for a bad movie poster.
When he talks about economic peace, is there anyone who has read Naomi Klein’s “The Shock Doctrine” who has any trust in this neo-conservative’s idea of economic peace. Any Palestinian should be incredibly scared of that part of his platform.
