Obama - a delusional traveler .

Reader comment on item: Netanyahu's Quiet Success

Submitted by batya dagan (United States), Sep 29, 2009 at 21:04

Obama's naivete , lack of experience and knowledgae of the ME and what really ails it, did him in.He burst into the sttelements subject with such force and delight as if he read some writing on some wall.Even Abbas was stunned.He did get Bibi to rise to his full hight.To simply teach him what is really going on in the Middle East.Who really wants peace and for what price.Ms. Hillary screechings made evrything worse.We ended up having some kind of street theater with players who are not familiar with their parts and think that screaming will cover up their pathetic lack of talent and preparation.

Obama should have known that everything is local in politics and that Israel of today is not Israel of ten years ago.Israel got out of GAZA and got thousnads of missles for it.It is not ready to play this game again.It was going to stand behind Bibi and not allow his government to fall so that Zippy will give the O everything he wants.Clinton's horrible intimidation of Bibi was not going to work this time around .

Obama is learning , however slowly , some things about the ME. He is learning that the Arab world he held to his chest is not a friend of his and will not rush to do what he tells/orders/ begs/ them to do. He is learning that the Arab world does not want peace either for religious reasons or for the need to keep the conflict going so that its hungry - angry citizens will have Israel to be mad at.

Obama should be learning that a lot of water will run through the Jordan river before he will see real peace in the ME.He should not be angry with himsef for that.It is not his fault. He is just one more delusional traveler who's fever was so high that he actually saw a Nobel for peace in his pocket.
