What does the world think of our President? Well, take a gander at this article from Niles Gardiner in The Telegraph. He comments on Obama’s “gaffe” of speaking while standing in front of backdrop of Arafat.
It is simply astonishing that the leader of the free world would agree to speak against a backdrop of a murderous terrorist with American and Israeli blood on his hands. What kind of message does this send to America’s enemies when the president of the United States gives a press conference standing in front of a banner celebrating one of the most brutal terrorists in history? It projects a clear signal that Washington is weak in the face of terrorism, and it is an insult to the memory of those who died at the hands of Arafat’s terror network.
