Obama - self-delusional?

Barack Obama on why there hasn't been progress in a settlement between Israelis and Palestinians:
"I think that we overestimated our ability to persuade them [to start engaging in a meaningful conversation]"
"Persuade"? When you say to the Israelis - "please stop building settlements" - and they respond with "no thanks", and you respond to that with "oh, ok", that's not "persuasion." It's flapping your gums.
