Not everyone in the Islamic world is Wild About Barry. Why not? Because “the Democrats are like a snake that kills you slowly without you noticing.” And because Obama “will never manage to change the structure of the American regime, which was established by capitalists, Zionists and racists.” In other words, Obama will never be able to replace the U.S. Constitution, with its guarantees of freedom of speech and equality of rights for all, with an authoritarian Iranian-style Sharia system that tramples upon those and other rights. Let’s hope not, anyway!
“‘That black man will never change US policy,'” from Israel Today, November 6 (thanks to all who sent this in):
While most in the Muslim Middle East have expressed satisfaction, if not outright joy, at the election of Barack Obama as the next president of the United States, not everyone shares that optimism.
Egyptian daily newspaper Al-Qaradhawi warned that it didn’t matter who the presidential candidate was, because “the Democrats are like a snake that kills you slowly without you noticing.”
The article said that Arabs should not think that just because the Republican Party is typically portrayed as anti-Muslim that the Democrats are any better.
Iranian daily newspaper Jomhouri-ye Elsami went after Obama himself with a headline reading “That Black Man Will Never Change US Policy.”
According to the article, “the most that that black man can do in the White House is to replace some of the staff and change some ceremonial procedures. He will never managed [sic] to change the structure of the American regime, which was established by capitalists, Zionists and racists.”
The Beirut Daily Star wrote that while Obama may be sincere in changing US policy, he will face “an entire subculture that operates within the American political arena…widely known as the ‘Israel’ or ‘Jewish’ lobby” that he will be unable to overcome.
I see they’ve been reading their Mearsheimer and Walt over in Beirut.
