Obama will go down in history as the president who lost Egypt
HAARETZ.com ^ | 1/31/11 | Aluf Benn

Posted on 01/31/2011 8:25:57 AM PST by teddyballgame

Jimmy Carter will go down in American history as "the president who lost Iran," which during his term went from being a major strategic ally of the United States to being the revolutionary Islamic Republic. Barack Obama will be remembered as the president who "lost" Turkey, Lebanon and Egypt, and during whose tenure America's alliances in the Middle East crumbled.

The superficial circumstances are similar. In both cases, a United States in financial crisis and after failed wars loses global influence under a leftist president whose good intentions are interpreted abroad as expressions of weakness. The results are reflected in the fall of regimes that were dependent on their relationship with Washington for survival, or in a change in their orientation, as with Ankara.

Obama did not lose the ME.

This is part and parcel of TREASONOUS behavior.

He is consolidating it for his brethren.

His first speech in Cairo... His speech in Indonesia against the Jews.
He is showing himself to be on side with them. Heck! He shares their same mantra....death to America.

Lose the ME? I don’t thinkso....

For Obama? Its the ..current policy from the white house.....the marginalization and destruction of America.

Obama , culturally never was an American as he carries many chips on his shoulder and as we see from his old culture at many levels. He feels for his Kenyan identity, he feels for his muslim identity developed during adolescence in Indonesia, and he feels his angst against white and America....

Its all about death to America....death to the great satan!
from a previous posting, see second last paragraph...

His drive against America is demonstrated in his unfettered support of the OIC driven “UN”.

On top of it, Obama is a Muslim wanabe or Wahabe, I call him a ghazi.

“One of the prettiest sounds on earth” is the Muslim call to prayer at sunset.
Barack Hussein Obama as quoted by Nicholas D. Kristof in the New York Times - March 6, 2007

• The FIRST thing Obama did as a newly elected Illinois State Senator was to attempt to declare a Muslim holiday. Obama sponsored Bill SR0110 in the 90th General Assembly to declare November 1, 1997 to be Islamic Community Center Day. It did not pass.

All this brings on a interesting question... how can America have any struggle against Islam, or protect herself with the most powerful muslim in the world sitting in the White House?

Be wary, wary aware ....and wary, wary afraid...get prepared for more creeping sharia...more than what is coming out of the White House today

"Obama will go down in history as the president who lost Egypt"
(and tossed Israel over to the muslim crazies)

This is not unexpected.

They have been working hard for two years to make this happen.

If Israel goes it won't be quietly, more like in a blinding nuclear flash.

Let us not forget Hillary The Invisible and her ‘Status’, err, State department, which continues, even after the massive internet shutdown in Egypt, to advise US Citizens in Egypt to send via open internet e-mail, the location, names, ages, and US passport numbers to the embassy there.

A state department which has been incredibly behind the curve in sending out warden messages or travel advisories. Who appears to be completely unprepared and unable to handle the crisis in the Middle East other than the normal Clintonian mode of ‘ignore it until it goes away.’

This is the least depressing of the recent analyses, but the comments here so far seem to have missed it — or perhaps the commenters didn’t read the article to the end?

Egypt will be a sidebar in history for Obama.

Obama will make Neville Chamberlain look like a warhawk.

Obama will go down in history as the man who led the collapse of western civilization.

Obama had help.

Hillary has been a sympathizer and supporter of radical Islam for a long time.

Obama certainly believes he is the long-awaited Mahdi (and so does Farrakhan).

Obama's goal is just that.

In some areas of the world, particularly those areas he is allied with, he will go "up" in history.

HaAretz is a leftist newspaper so I’d advise taking any of their commentary/analysis with high-blood-pressure-levels of salt. Note that they, as leftists, can’t avoid blaming their own country for these riots!!
“He[Obimbo] will be accused of not pushing Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hard enough to stop the settlements and thus indirectly quell the rising tides of anger in the Muslim world. But that’s a case of 20:20 hindsight.”

Pal?

Freedom, liberty, rights and democracy come from our heritage with much of it founded in the Magna Carta.

Muslims suffer a heritage that traps them in the 7th century where they forgo all those things as we understand them. Much like Africans. They marvel in the word democracy. Some can even spell it. But, guess what? Go in land in any of the nations and they are still tribalists. They blame colonialism on their retarded growth and have anger for it, but the real suppressor and oppressor is their own chief. In their realities? No one can get ahead of the chief, and the last thing he wants to hear about is democracy.... cuzz thats what is going to strip his power, prestige and property. The theologians are in the same boat.

We left tribal control long ago. Our political and philosophical perspective has had over 2000 years to take modern man to where he is. The barbarians are still 1700 years behind us.

You are absolutely correct as we do not have a president at this time. He is just one of the occupants living in the White House.
