    Criticism of the Obama administration's dealings with Iran is widespread across Arab media these days. And, Obama's popularity with the Arab public has bottomed out, as well.

    “Obama’s administration has been silent over daily crimes of genocide,” writes Abdulrahman al-Rashed, former editor-in-chief of a London-based Arab daily in a scathing op-ed. After prohibiting arming the opposition to Syria’s dictator Assad, it “now wants to reconcile with murderers in broad daylight,” he writes.

    “If the aim of [Secretary of State John Kerry’s] statement is to please the Iranians, the American government must think twice, because this harms everything it has built over long decades,” wrote al-Rashed.

    “Kerry has heralded the gates of hell on himself and his country in [the] angry region” of Iraq and Syria, writes al-Rashed. “Despite many of his slips, Kerry's latest statements were his worst.”

    .....In a March 2, 2015 article published in Saudi daily Al-Jazirah Saudi columnist Ahmad Al-Faraj calls President Obama an “ally of political Islam, [which is] the caring mother of [all] the terrorist organizations.”

    The lyrics of a pop song by Egyptian singer Shaaban Abdel Rahim call Obama “a coward” and “a traitor” who supports ISIS and Hamas.

    Rahim sings:

    “We don’t want anything from you; Game over Obama! Egyptians are well aware of your relationship with ISIS and Hamas! You said, ‘as-salamu alaykum’ [peace be upon you] and tried to fool us, but you just came in order to divide us.”

    The Arab world thought they owned Obama. With his overtures and concessions to the Persians, the Arabs are learning something I've known for a while... that it is Islam that owns the wannabe king.

    His deal at any cost approach to Iran shows that he is a slave to his own egomaniacal ambitions. He is legacy building and he will sell out the USA, the arabs and the rest of the world to salvage his tainted reputation.
