1. Obama just does not know when to shut up.
Jrebecca ,   modiin   (12.12.12)
These rebels include a large group of Israel and America hating, Al quida wanabees.
2. Libya and Syria had stable governments until foreigners
Rivkah   (12.12.12)
mucked it up, providing arms to militias that are so evil that a video I just watched yesterday on Walid Shoebat's email news was of a CHILD killing a tied up man lying on a sidewalk and cut off his head with ONE WACK! A CHILD! What kind of depravity is that? The rebels in Syria can't even do their own killing as soldiers in a cause but have to have CHILDREN kill for them? Sick. Really sick.
3. Based on American (obama) logic
Paul ,   Jerusalem   (12.12.12)
which openly supports the Muslim Brotherhood, if it is supporting the Syrian opposition for being inclusive, then you can be assured that it is one big degenerate gang of Jihadists.
4. deja vu
michel ,   Ashkelon   (12.12.12)
Here once again Obama run to support a radical muslim faction as inEgypt, Lybia and elsewere. This is not a coincidence, it`s a personal agenda : the one that for four more years he will strength islam and weaken the west.
5. Thank you Mr. President!
Dee Bee ,   Israel   (12.12.12)
You and the EU with its Anti-Israel Vice President and High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Baroness Ashton, for recognizing the Syrian "Rebels" who hate Israel more than they hate Assad and are committed to Israel's destruction and no doubt will be allied with Egypt, Hamas, Hezbollah and Al-Qaeda in the Holy Jihad against the Jews, the USA and Europe. Some critics of Prime Minister Netanyahu maintain that he backed the wrong horse in the US Presidential Election. It seems that this was done by the American people.
6. That's how its done
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (12.12.12)
Two years ago, Obama was enamoured with Mr. Assad and his glamorous wife. One day Obama suddenly decided US interests lay elsewhere. He invented, funded and armed Sunni Jihadi to attack Assad. Two years later, Obama declares his own Jihadi as the legitimate representatives of the Syrian people, who cares what Alawi, Shia, Druze, Kurd and Christians say. Netanyahu, are you reading this? Time to start negotiating with the real representatives of the Arabs in Judea and Samaria, and that is not PLO/Fatah.
7. Obama and the ever ready pencil
Asfour ,   Ramallah   (12.12.12)
The hooligan will get what is coming He messed up and it is beyond belief why instantaneous justice has not yet caught up with him. He is a Saint awaited in Heavens
8. #6: So who are the real Reps of the Palestinians?
David ,   Karmiel, Israel   (12.12.12)
I don't know and I don't think they know either. The problem is that the Palestinians, like some extremist Israelis on BOTH the left and the right are still in the brainwashing stage of "I must hate because my ideology says so". Only once their brains are tumble-dried can common sense prevail and that will probably take another couple of thousand years! its much easier to hate than to see reason.
Haider ,   Gothenburg, Sweden   (12.12.12)
Obama took out Osama but encourages his disciples to take over Syria like they did in other Arab countries. What´s the wisdom in that?
10. First O-Boy promotes MB in Egypt, now he supports Al-qaeda
Esther ,   Israel   (12.12.12)
in Syria. Is he really that stupid or did he have this Islamic takeover planned before he was elected? He has certainly spent most of the last 4 years helping nobody but the radical muslims.
11. #8
israel israeli ,   tel aviv   (12.12.12)
The "Obama style" representatives are anyone we want. In Libya and Syria, Obama took some people off the street, gave them guns and money, and then declared them authentic. Since Fatah/PLO represents no one, and Hamas can't negotiate with us, we just need to get some friends, arm them and then negotiate with them. We limit our involvement to an Obama-style "no fly zone" that would include bombing any Fatah movement and IDF ground troops supporting our friends when their villages are under attack. By the way, Obama did not invent this nor did Putin who did it in Georgia. I think the UK invented it in Ireland with their dreaded RUC.
12. Haider # 9
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (12.12.12)
Clinton and Panetta took out BIn Laden. Aside from taking the credit Obama had nothing to do with it.
