My Dear BHW Sisters,
I am watching Fareed Zakaria GPS
as I do most Sunday mornings ... and I am disappointed in the interview with the Egyptian
activists ... To a person, they did not SEE
or express gratitude toward President Obama
... Did they not SEE
that without his help ... whether rhetoric or not ... they would likely not
have prevailed? ...
... I can't understand the lack of gratitude ...
that everyone IS entitled to an opinion ... and this, too, is just one person's opinion
... but, words are not merely words as these young people seem to think Obama's rhetoric
is merely words ... "and he's very good at it" ...
They resent the stand American Administrations take toward support of Israel
... Hmmm ... IF
we listen to Prime Minister Netanyahu
recently ... he would not
likely say he is getting the support from the Obama Administration
he wishes ...
Everyone tends to SEE
things from their own perspective ... I think everyone needs to take a step back and LOOK
at things as objectively as they can ... The Obama Administration
has been most helpful to the "Mideast Spring" ("Arab Spring") ...
Just my humble 2 pennies ... With my gratitude, respect, my love, and many blessings ... ...
Aloha pume hana,
