What Jimmy Carter was to the Islamic revolution in Iran, Barack Obama is to the Arab Spring. As devastasting as Carter's policies were in dealing with Iran, Obama's weakness in dealing with the Muslim world poses an even greater threat because under Carter only one nation, granted a big and important one, was lost to the hard-line Islamists. Obama, on the other hand, is ushering in an Islamic caliphate throughout the Middle East and North Africa. The U.S. and the West will live to regret even hearing the name Barack Obama.

Walid Phares: Obama’s Failed Leadership Is Leading to Islamic State in Egypt
"Clashes between Egyptian riot police and rock-hurling protesters in Cairo’s Tahrir Square continued today.
Mideast expert Walid Phares told NewsMax that Obama’s failed leadership (from behind) has led to the likely creation of an Islamic state in Egypt.
The Arab Spring has failed in Egypt, and the Muslim Brotherhood may turn the most populous nation in the Middle East into an Islamist state within months, says Walid Phares, a Mideast expert and adviser to Congress.
And if the Obama administration doesn’t alter its flawed strategy in confronting this threat, the entire region could be in turmoil by this time next year, Phares said in an exclusive Newsmax interview.
“If the Obama administration doesn’t change strategic direction in Washington, the Middle East, one year from now, will look much more dangerous than ever before,” Phares said.
…“Unfortunately, over the past few months, the Muslim Brotherhood and the military have cut a deal. Now the deal is off,” Phares said in explaining the circumstances that have brought thousands back to the streets in the biggest protests since massive demonstrations forced President Hosni Mubarak from office after 30 years of rule.
The Muslim Brotherhood mobilized the majority of the youths protesting in Tahrir Square to attack the military to force the military council to “cut another deal.”
The Muslim Brotherhood wants power transferred from the military council into its own hands to use it to establish an Islamist state, Phares said.'"
Let's take a look at what has resulted from this Obama-sponsored Arab Spring. Tunisia has fallen to the Islamists. The al-Qaeda flag is flying over Libya. Egypt is on the brink of collapse to the hard-liners. Assad is holding on for dear life in Syria. And poor little Israel sits in the midst of all these savages who are thirsting for some Jewish blood.
Oh, Mr. President, this baby has your name all over it. No George W. Bush anywhere in sight.
I almost forgot, we have one more country to throw into the mix. Yemen has gone over to the wolves. Read from Now the End Begins:
Yemen Falls! Score Another One for Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood
"Now that’s teamwork
'For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:' Psalm 83
For all of 2011, NTEB has brought you story after story of nefarious duo of Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood acting together to radicalize the entire Middle East. We call this the Arab Spring, and it’s a combination of two elements. The first being the ‘boots on the ground’ of the Muslim Brotherhood inciting hundreds of thousands of Muslims to riot and protest their governments. The Brotherhood stirs them up, and then quietly steps back behind the scenes and watches as the wheels they put in motion catch fire. Literally.
The second element that makes this work is US President Barack Hussein Obama using American influence and money to finance the riots, and keep them going long enough to topple their intended victim. Victories have been scored thus far in Tunisia, Egypt, Libya, and now Yemen. As you read the story below, pay close attention to how very involved Obama was in making this happen. Syria will be next.
Yemen’s Saleh finally signs deal to quit power
'Yemeni President Ali Abdullah Saleh signed a deal on Wednesday to hand over his powers after 33 years in office, ending months of delay that had seen protests that erupted in January slide into deadly unrest.
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, who hosted the signing ceremony at his Al-Yamama palace in Riyadh, hailed a “new page” for the impoverished neighbouring country, while US President Barack Obama called on Yemenis to immediately implement the “historic transition” that had been agreed.
Saleh promised “real partnership” with the opposition in implementing the Gulf- and UN-brokered agreement, but thousands of demonstrators again took to the streets of the capital Sanaa to protest against the deal’s promise of immunity from prosecution for both him and his family.
The US president paid tribute to the protesters for enduring a bloody crackdown by Saleh’s regime which has left hundreds dead and thousands wounded since January, but called on them to seize on the opportunity of the Riyadh deal.
“For 10 months, the Yemeni people have courageously and steadfastly voiced their demands for change in cities across Yemen in the face of violence and extreme hardship,” Obama said.
“Today’s agreement brings them a significant step closer to realising their aspirations for a new beginning in Yemen.
“The United States urges all parties to move immediately to implement the terms of the agreement, which will allow Yemen to begin addressing an array of formidable challenges and chart a more secure and prosperous path for the future.”
Protesters again demonstrated in Sanaa earlier on Wednesday. There were also brief clashes in the capital between forces loyal to Saleh and dissident troops, residents said.
Reunifying Yemen’s deeply divided armed forces will be one of the major challenges of the transition deal.
Saleh’s son Ahmed commands the Republican Guards, his nephew Yehya heads the central security services, and Tariq, another nephew, controls the presidential guard. But two major army divisions — one in Sanaa and one in Yemen’s second-largest city Taez — rallied to the opposition and have fought repeated battles against the loyalists, leaving scores dead. source – Yahoo News"
