in response to reader comment: President Obama's wrong message

Submitted by mo (United Kingdom), Feb 3, 2011 at 17:25

Dear Shimshon,

This not the fault of Obama. US for centuries have been led by realists. US supported Mubarak with 3 billion a year of tax payers money, because he had proved himself to be a loyal servant, and he put Israels interest above Egypt's. But now the reality is that he is going there is no point supporting him. Obama like any other realist american president is trying to win over the future leader whoever it may be. You should understand that Obama is doing this to safeguard Israel's interest. But I salute the sincerity of Israel, which is the only country actively and publicly supporting Mubarak in a fearless way. Now that his departure is imminent, best thing it could do is to send a military helicopter to bring him home. What better homage Israel can pay to it's closest friend than this.
