Saudi Columnist Declares Obama ‘One of the Worst American Presidents’

    One of the side effects of the Obama administration-led efforts to forge a negotiated deal over Iran’s nuclear program is that it has aligned traditional foes Israel and Saudi Arabia in both vociferously opposing what they consider a bad deal that will threaten each country’s security.

    Secretary of State John Kerry was in Saudi Arabia Thursday to try to allay those fears one day after concluding another round of talks with Iranian nuclear negotiators in Switzerland.

    The concern is so acute among that Saudis that, in a stunning display earlier this week, a Saudi columnist penned an article offering his full support to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s address to Congress this week “despite the Obama administration’s anger and fury.”

    Columnist Ahmad Al-Faraj Monday wrote in the pro-government Saudi daily Al-Jazirah, “I believe that Netanyahu’s conduct will serve our interests, the people of the Gulf, much more than the foolish behavior of one of the worst American presidents.”

    The USA and the Europeans are dividing up the Middle East with the Persians and the Jews and Sunnis are not even invited to the table for the talks.
