Comments on: Yes We Can: A Letter to Obama from an Arab-American http://arabcomment.com/2009/yes-we-can-a-letter-to-obama-from-an-arab-american/ where the Arab world thinks out loud Wed, 16 Jun 2010 15:56:58 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.4.11 By: Devin Weiss http://arabcomment.com/2009/yes-we-can-a-letter-to-obama-from-an-arab-american/comment-page-1/#comment-2229 Sat, 20 Mar 2010 10:38:01 +0000 http://arabcomment.com/?p=430#comment-2229 Barack Obama’s book, “The Audacity of Hope,” shows a appealing title. It has a taste of bravery mixed with full confidence. There is nothing Pollyanna about it. I would possibly not support every little thing he says, but he’s our president, as well as for me, he creates confidence. Which can do more for just a region than any number of backroom deals. Hope gives us energy, and energy sustains us through trying times. Boy, we’ve had them. I’m from West Texas, and I did not vote for Bush. When McCain ran against Obama, I was a citizen of Arizona, but I gave audacious hope a chance. The fight for progress and laying the foundations of prosperity will not be over. I have come across the quips of those that don’t believe Obama is capable of it. But step back a moment. Would anyone have most of us fail simply to tarnish the star of an incumbent for whom they did not vote? Trying to keep our priorities straight, let’s work together with this president and build our future.

What we need to look at are the facts in front of our faces: Obama has remained silent about Gaza, and hypocritically attributes his silence to “one president at a time” policy making, even though this doesn’t prevent him from talking daily about the financial crisis and the “new direction” he plans to take in Afghanistan. Let’s be realistic about Obama; he is a politician who used the zeitgeist as an opportunity to get elected, but whose political vision is more of the same with a chummier face. And it’s no mystery where his cabinet stands in relation to Israel.
