    In declaring that it is time for Middle East peace "without preconditions," President Obama used his speech to the U.N. General Assembly Wednesday to fire a warning at Israel that "America does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements."

    Obama's stark declaration, which drew applause, was coupled with a call for Palestinians to end their "incitement of Israel."

    But it was the use of the U.N. forum to carry the settlement message to Israel that drew the most enthusiastic response on the floor -- and incredulous reaction outside its walls.

    Obama just put Israel "on the chopping block," said former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton.

    Obama said he met Tuesday with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was not in attendance at the speech, and agreed that the two have made some progress in both strengthening security and facilitating freedom of movement, which have allowed the economy in the West Bank to grow.

    But more progress is needed, he said.

    He also stupidly used the term "occupation since 1967" which tells me he's been miseducated, sadly miseducated. Unfortunately, it's a common condition. We are just so screwed.

    That doesn't really mean much. I'd like to see him actually do something to prevent the settlements from expanding.
