In this article, Amotz Asael surveys different responses to Bush's Mideast speech. In particular he characterizes a shallow response common in the European media:

There is no mention that Bush might be motivated by Arafat's rejection of peace plans, breaking of promises, or intelligence demonstrating that he is behind the terrorism of the past two years. Oh, no - what is really happening is that Bush cares nothing about the facts. He only "parrots the views of the hawks within his administration" who in turn only "echo the views of Israel's prime minister, Ariel Sharon."
