Not so hot, according to today's Al-Hayat Al-Jadida, Mahmoud Abbas's official newspaper (translation by Palestinian Media Watch), which asks, among other things, "Why, Mrs. Hillary? How much did the Zionists pay you as a bribe?" and, just in case anybody has any illusions about the beliefs of our Palestinian "partners for peace," the paper prints this cartoon, straight out of the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

The PA should rest assured, however, that Hillary's taking it all back in Marrakech, where she's reverted to form:

"The Obama administration position on settlements is clear, unequivocal, it has not changed. As the president has said on many occasions, the United States does not accept the legitimacy of continued Israeli settlements."

They just cannot figure out which side it is better to appease.
