Oh No!

Reader comment on item: Confirmed: Barack Obama Practiced Islam

Submitted by Blackspeare (United States), Jan 7, 2008 at 13:39

Uh-oh, that proves it----Obama is the Manchurian candidate----only joking, but it will bring the crazies out of the woodwork! However, the one thing that will happen with Barack Obama being a viable candidate is that it will delay any movement in the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.

We already know that Israeli has little to gain by a settlement at this time and the Palestinians will see in Obama perhaps a person with perhaps a more sympathetic view to their cause or the converse with less sympathy for the Israeli cause. Even the Syrians have said they will wait for the next US administration before making any overtures.

In any event, the Obama phenomena will delay any meaningful negotiations. And currently Bush is making a whirlwind tour of the ME to create an impetus for peace-----another fool's errand!
