Arab leaders have reacted  with anger and disbelief to an intensely 
pro-Israeli speech delivered by Barack  Obama, the US Democratic presumptive 
presidential nominee.
Obama told the influential  annual policy conference of the American Israel 
Public Affairs Council (Aipac):  "Jerusalem will remain the capital of Israel 
and it must remain  undivided."

His comments appalled  Palestinians who see occupied East Jerusalem as part 
of a future Palestinian  state.
Saeb Erekat, the chief  Palestinian negotiator, told Al Jazeera on Thursday: 
"This is the worst thing to  happen to us since 1967 ... he has given 
ammunition to extremists across the  region".
