How the Arab World will respond to an Obama Presidency

Reader comment on item: Was Barack Obama a Muslim?

Submitted by DeAnn Noel (United States), Sep 19, 2008 at 07:58

Well having lived cheek-and-jowl with Muslims all my life should Obama become President of the US the Arab world (esp. Al-Qaeda) will be hailing this as a sign of victory from God. They would spin it to their constituents in words to the effect:

"Look at what the Mighty Allah has wrought. He (Allah) conferred victory upon us over the Great Satan (America) without us even having to raise a great army. For he has installed a Muslim in charge of the great Christian nation of America."

And I do not say this lightly for even now in Egypt and other Muslim lands this is the big buzz.

In short an Obama win will only embolden the Islamic terroist elements as opposed to tampering it down.
