Terriffic expose' on current events, and I was amazed at learning that most of what I suspected was going on with the various players was true. Israel is a bit more in the cat bird's seat thanks to Obama, though I do not suspect he expected that to happen. Your "leftist" analogy of Mr. O seems right on, given that he seems to have no idea what happens to Iran's enemies when he capitulates to Iran. He has a definite blind spot, but that may be of some benefit to Israel at least in the short term. You said the new president of Turkey could be a future threat and I agree.

Also, al Sisi is overplaying his hand as I feared. Is there really any sanity to be had long term in the Islamic world? The horrific Islamic State will burn out in time and the Kurds will take them to the wall no matter what. The quiet Islamists that work from within whether here or in Turkey will continue their infiltration into the Western systems. I shall trust none of them. Iran is doing its happy dance with Mr. O's capitulaltions. I suspect Mr. O has something going with Iran after his exit from his current position. We must not forget the "night stalker" still rules the roost at the White House and she is Iranian. There is more to this Iran deal than we know!
