WP: [ Arab journalists applaud Hillary ]

“…(Clinton) ended with such a stirring pledge to work on peace between the Israelis and the Palestinians that Arab journalists erupted in applause at the end of the news conference. I have never seen that before in seven years of covering the diplomacy beat. I checked with a State Department official who has witnessed dozens of news conferences in the Middle East over some 30 years, and he said he had never seen such a reaction before either.”
