How the World Sees Obama

Not popular everywhere?

"Much of the world exults in Obama; His diverse background is inspiration" by Farah Stockman, Globe Staff | November 6, 2008

WASHINGTON - As congratulations for Barack Obama poured in yesterday from world leaders and from ordinary people around the globe, the reaction of US friends and foes alike suggests that Obama will receive a level of international good will not seen by a US president since John F. Kennedy.

It remains to be seen whether Obama's global popularity will give him the ability to pull off foreign policy victories that President Bush could not, such as garnering more European troops for Afghanistan or persuading Iran to stop its controversial nuclear program, said Richard C. Eichenberg, a political science professor at Tuft University's Fletcher School.

Translation: Obama serves the Zionist masters

That will be a tall order for a new president facing a global financial meltdown, wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, a festering Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and lingering nuclear crises in both North Korea and Iran. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev did not appear to offer any public congratulations, underscoring the new tensions in the US-Russia relationship over Georgia. The reaction in Asia was also cautious.

"Obviously, the Europeans and the Africans are bouncing off the moon," said Charles Freeman, chair of the China studies program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. "But the Chinese are worried because they are used to Republicans, and they don't like anything that might rock the boat or create instability."

Obama's popularity in some parts of the Muslim world may have been sparked by erroneous rumors about his religion. Khalid Pashtoon, a member of Parliament from Afghanistan's Kandahar Province, told the Financial Times that many Afghans prefer Obama because "he was raised by a Muslim family."

Ha-ha!! The Zionist propaganda bommeranged!!!

Obama spent most of his childhood with his American mother and grandparents, who gave him a largely secular upbringing. --more--"
