English-language Arab newspapers have largely expressed hopes that President-elect Barack Obama will be supporting the Arab world, but many Arabic language newspapers mocked the victory.
The English Saudi Gazette daily headline, "Gulf Arabs hail election of 'Muslim-linked' Obama," and English newspaper in Kuwait and Saudi Arabia also expressed optimism. However, the Beirut Daily Star took pains to note that President-elect Obama faces "an entire subculture [that] operates within the American political arena …widely known as the 'Israel' or 'Jewish' lobby.
Arabic-language media expressed harsher views.
The Egyptian daily Al-Qaradhawi stated, "The Democrats Are like a Snake That "Kill[s] You Slowly without You Noticing," according to a translation provided by The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI). "The Democrats kill you slowly without you noticing it – and therein lies the danger. They are like a snake whose touch is not felt until its poison enters your body."
The Iranian daily Jomhouri-ye Eslami's editorial was headlined, "That Black Man Will Never Change U.S. Policy." It added, "The most that that black man can do in the White House is to replace some of the staff and change some ceremonial procedures. He will never manage to change the structure of the American regime, which was established by capitalists, Zionists, and racists."
Although major Arab newspapers favored Obama, the Syrian daily Al-Watan wrote after the elections, "Some claim that if Obama wins he will be no better than Bush, if not worse... They may be right, since it is well known that no American president has ever stood on the side of the Arabs – rather, they have all stood on the side of Israel…" %ad%
The Saudi Arabian Al-Watan editorialized, "There is no significant difference between Obama and McCain. They disagree only on the means to achieve America's chief goal, which is to rule for another hundred years."
A more moderate view was expressed by Daoud Al-Shiryan, columnist for the London-based Saudi Arabian daily Al-Hayat and deputy director of Al-Arabiya Television. "The U.S. elections afford a kind of change that does not occur in the Arab 'democracies'... The faces [in the White House] change in a way that we find impressive," he wrote.

Well and good. But here are a couple of Comments to this article:
It's Just "Arabia", not "Saudi" Arabia
There is no other Arabia, so there is no reason to use an adjective in the name of the only country in the world whose leaders have such an inferiority complex (*) that they eed to have the name of their chief bandit clan incorporated into the name of their sand dune. One does not call the UK "Windsorian England."(*) On the other hand these clowns don't just have an inferiority complex, they really are inferior in spite of all their goofy titlessuch as "prince" and "king."

Come ON! Don't Be Blind!
These are the very same Muslims who were just dancing in the streets about Obama being elected. Why the sudden about-face? BECAUSE the Muslim leaders cannot have their tools (tools being the Muslim people) OPENLY loving Obama. This would be a disaster for Obama! This would bring all kinds of questioning as to Obama's links to extremist Islam, this would cause Obama's followers (maybe) to start having second thoughts.
So the status quo must be maintained. The Muslims are liars, and will present whatever face to the world that will further their goal of Jihad and global rule. If they are seen as Obama's enemies, they can continue to get their demands met, just like they have under Bush for 8 years while pretending to be his enemy.It's all bullocks, people. Don't fall for it. Muslims and Obama have the SAME GOALS in mind for Israel and the Jews - EXTERMINATION. Global Jihad.
