OBAMA FULLY SUPPORTED THE “ARAB SPRING” IN 2010, AND TODAY, ARAB YOUTHS ARE SAYING IT BECAME A TRAVESTY AFTER IT…
“No one will remember that President Obama supported the Arab Spring if it eventually fails and the region collapses back into the political Dark Ages. If we actively engage these movements with advice, with money, and, when necessary, with military force, then we get a vote in how it all turns out.”
Here’s a brief excerpt from The Jerusalem Post…
“Arab youth support for the Arab Spring is declining in the region, along with the hope for democracy that it entailed, a new survey finds.
The 7th Annual ASDA’A Burson-Marsteller Arab Youth Survey 2015 was conducted by international polling firm Penn Schoen Berland and explored the attitudes of Arab youth in 16 Middle East and North African countries. The survey took place in Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE, Algeria, Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, the Palestinian territories, Tunisia, and Yemen.
Only 15 percent of Arab youth in 2015 believe the biggest obstacle facing the Middle East is a “lack of democracy,” compared to 41% in 2012, according to results posted on the survey website, arabyouthsurvey.com. Following the Arab Spring, which broke out in Tunisia in December 2010, many hoped or presumed that the uprisings would lead to a change toward democracy in the region. And now, just 38% agree that the Arab world is better off following the Arab Spring compared to 72% in 2012.
The survey found that 39% agree with the statement “democracy will never work in the region,” with another 36% saying it would work, and 25% undecided. An equal number of Arab men and women from the ages of 18-24 were interviewed in 3,500 face-to-face interviews from January 20 to February 12, 2015.
Asked how concerned they are about the rise of Islamic State, an overwhelming number (73%) said they are worried, but only 47% are confident in their own government’s ability to deal with it.”
So there you have it, even Arab youths are smarter than Obama, especially when asked about the biggest obstacle facing the Middle East. Seventy-three percent stated ISIS was their biggest concern. The way Obama sees it, the biggest threat facing the United States is not ISIS, but [non-existent] global warming.
I posted something on this very subject in April of 2011, approximately four months after the beginning of the ill-fated “Arab Spring”…
My senses are telling me that the biggest threat facing the United States is Obama…
