Obama, the Middle East and Islam - An Initial Assessment

Reader comment on item: Obama, the Middle East and Islam - An Initial Assessment

Submitted by Arlinda (United States), Feb 3, 2009 at 13:45

Obama's olive branch to the Islamofascists:his interview with "Al Arabiya," his statement that we are not the enemy of Islam, closing Guantanamo, stopping the trials in progress of the terrorists in Guantanamo, and letting Iran, Hamas, Hezbollah, the Brotherhood and every other Islamofascist killing machine know that we are leaving the Middle East in one year. His public statements and interviews with Israeli leaders, Israeli newspapers, government officials do not exist. What did he as president extend to Israel? Nothing, not word, not a statement, not anything. Israel does not exist to Obama.

Ahmadinejhad sees weakness and responds in kind telling the Americans that support of Israel is a war crime. That "occupation of Iraq" is a crime against Islam and America has to pay for its sins against Islam. Obama appears weak and incompetent and the Islamofascist killing machine will come for us and the insanity of the Middle East has just been given a new lease on life.

I am terrified that Israel and the United States has before them a weak and ignorant president who should not negotiate with fascists. He wants to negotiate without any pre-conditions. Nations cannot negotiate with fascists and totalitarians. Nations can appease fascists and totalitarians. Obama is unaware that there are protocols and rules that govern geo politics. He doesn't know anything and his leftwing politics will make him a sitting duck for every tyrant out there. We, the people, will the price.

His ignorance, his inability to solve problems, his limp olive branches to people who want to kill us, his neglect of Israel, his refusal to extend himself to our closest ally is a message I cannot even begin to think about. You can be sure, of course, that our enemies are out there rubbing their hands together and drooling. They've just been served up with a feast of lifetime.
