Saudis Lament: ‘We Have Been Stabbed In The Back By Obama’


saudi-king-abdullahArabs don’t trust Obama either.

As 2013 ends, President Obama has lost credibility with many people who trusted him at the start of the year. Thanks to the debacle, polls find support for the president among women and independents has dropped to the lowest ebb of his presidency. Obama’s words — promising Americans they could keep their doctors under his health care plan — didn’t match his deeds.

Surprisingly, the same thing is happening on the other side of the world among Arabs in the Middle East and for the same reason.

Too often, Obama’s speeches and actions don’t match.

“We are glad the Americans are here,” said Ahmed al-Ibrahim, an adviser to some of Saudi Arabia’s royals and officials, when I met with him recently, “but we fear that the president has lost credibility after Syria.”

Next came the revelation earlier this year that Obama was secretly negotiating with Iran, the mortal enemy of both Israel and Saudi Arabia. Officials in both nations have told me that they simply don’t believe that the president can sweet-talk the mullahs out of the weapons they have coveted for years.The Saudi official is referring to Obama’s “red line” vow of military action if the Syrian dictator Bashir Assad used chemical weapons against his own people. Assad did and Obama didn’t. Saudi officials were stunned.

“The bond of trust between America and Saudi Arabia has been broken in the Obama years,” al-Ibrahim said. “We feel we have been stabbed in the back by Obama.”

“Every time that Obama had to choose between his enemies and his friends, he always chose his enemies,” he said. “We don’t know what he’s putting in his tea.”

  1. Who hasn’t?
    America is stuck with Obamacare!
    The Saudis aren’t even our allies – what should Israel say?
    I don’t think Obama is a wicked person persay, just hardly suited for the job!
    Neither is deBlasio for that matter.

  2. Smores are more anticipating than a Saudi Convention. I think that the Saudis are right to think that they have lost some influence. But the reality is that the Saudis are not always that deserving. So the Obama regime is true in many ways to peace and prosperity. I will vote to try it Obama’s way until the wicked are no longer the worry of my day.

  3. Obama is the 4th best President in the history of the United States:

    Number 1. Ronald Reagan
    Number 2. A tie between all the other presidents.
    Number 3. Jimmy Carter
    Number 4. Brech Obama

  4. IT Started in egypt with the arab spring
