Kerry's speech in Europe and the Middle East: According to the New York Times

"In Europe, however, Mr. Kerry’s speech was greeted warmly, with officials calling it a courageous and thoughtful effort to salvage the idea of a two-state solution for the Israelis and Palestinians. Still, across the Arab world, his harsh words for Israel were met with a collective shrug, coming at the end of eight years of Obama administration policies that left many in the Middle East frustrated."  When they talk in Western media about "people in the Middle East" or "the Arab people" they only have Gulf regimes in mind.
