(smirks)....a couple of notes

Reader comment on item: Barack Obama through Muslim Eyes
in response to reader comment: Young Syrians anxiously watching US race

1) I went to college with a man from Syria. It's interesting how these Muslims tout "injustice" when it is so prominent in their own backyard. I guess it's always easy to play the victim, though?

I'll bet you won't find Gulf News reporting on how Syrians discriminate against the Christians who live there? Oh yes, some 1 million or so, I hear. Sometimes when they call emergency services, they just take their time, nice and slow....unless you are a Muslim, naturally.

2) It's no secret the media has it in for Obama. In fact, it's gotten so bad that many Hilary supporters have appeared on conservative venues and have openly declared they will vote for John McCain.

The Syrian government wants Obama for the same reason every terrorist, radical, environmentalist group, every rogue dictator and Russia and China want: because they seem him as weak.
