I en kommentar till den text i Arutz 7 som jag länkade till igår finner man följande:
The “Arab street” also favors Obama. Recent surveys found that he is the preferred candidate in Egypt, Jordan, Morocco, Algeria, Syria, Saudi Arabia, & the UAE.
The Syrian regime has indicated its preference for Obama. Buthaina Shaaban, an adviser to President Bashar al-Assad, has written: “The change suggested by Obama is essential not only for the U.S. but for the entire human family.”
Libyan leader Muammar al-Qaddafi called Obama “a Muslim” & said: “All the people in the Arab and Muslim world & in Africa applauded this man. They welcome him & prayed for his success,” although Qaddafi also expressed criticism of Obama’s comments on the future of Jerusalem.
Hamas political adviser Ahmed Yousef said this year: “We like Mr. Obama & we hope that he will win the election.”
Hezbollah’s second in command, Sheik Naim al-Kassim, urged Americans to vote for Obama as a step toward peace with Islam, & pro-Hezbollah columnist Amal Saad-Ghorayeb said there is “no doubt Arabs should welcome an Obama presidency,” according to Amir Taheri.(NY Post Oct.28,08)
In Saudi Arabia, commentator Hussein Shobokshi wrote that an Obama presidency “would mark an important moral transformation in the superpower & is a healthy indicator of the long-awaited improvement in the international arena.”
Han verkar alltså stå högt i kurs bland terrorister och diktatorer. Knappast ett gott omen, eller hur.
Men så illa som följande bild vill framställa saken, är det väl ändå inte?
