    Who can expalin what Obama is doing for the free world?
    Obama is not demanding the Arab/Iran to outlaw parties with the agenda:
    No-human rights
    No-woman equality
    No-all religious free practice
    Yes-hate teaching and preaching worldwide
    Yes-legitimy to build and maintain non muslim praing houses
    Yes-impose by the power of sward Islamism worldwide
    Yes-genoside agenda

    President Obama-repeates past mistakes.
    The Nazi get to power in Germany by free elections.
    Europe made many concetions to the Nazi including Czechoslovakia stating:
    we bring peace for generations to come.
    The end result was WW2.
    -President Obama pls reconsider your ME policy.
    **The reasons of unrest in the ME are: unemployment, poor life quality, counties ruled by minority tribes and not the quest for western style of democracy or the Israeli conflict.However Obama misconceptions about the reality leads only to wrong political actions
    Obama:Pls lessen to what leading political groups say in Arabic language and not in English to the west media
    1:The powerfull worldwide Muslim brotherhood idiology.
    A;"A Muslim can come closer to Allah by waging jihad against all non-Muslims,Christians,Jews, atheists, in every possible manner
    .B:Muslim brotherhood leader speech in Cairo before 1 million people:
    "Hitler didn’t finish the job-The Muslims will finish the Job"-
    Obama said that Muslim brotherhood is a legitimate movement
    2:Obama claimed that stopping Islamist Iran form getting NUK is related to the Arab–Israel conflict:
    Wikileaks disclosed that the Arab leaders requested USA to stop Islamist Iran, the traditional regional historical superpower Arabs geopolitical enemy by any means
    3: Obama policy result to a total stand still the direct negations between Palestine's and Israel.
    Obama is not respecting previous agreements between USA presidents and Israel.

    President Obama's newly stated Middle East policy is in essence the fulfillment of one Bible prophecy and it sets the stage for all of Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

    In his speech to make clear his new Middle East policy, President Obama made demands of the Jewish state of Israel that will make it impossible for Israel to defend itself from its many enemies in the Middle East. Of most concern to the leaders of Israel is the demand that Israel give back the land it took to establish a buffer zone between itself and its Arab enemies in 1967.

    As the political debates continue, the prophetic passages of God's Word give us great insight into the significance of Obama's new Middle East policy. As it relates to the land that Obama demands Israel give to the Palestinians, this land does not belong to the United States who are making these demands, but it does belong to God (Leviticus 25:23). As it relates to Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, the Bible says that Jesus will return to this area and reign among the Jewish people from a temple on the Temple Mount forever (Zechariah 1:16, 6:12, Psalm 132:13-14).

    The fact that a Gentile world leader is dictating to the Jewish people about the Temple Mount and what should happen there is exactly what Jesus Christ said would happen – that Jerusalem would come under control of the Gentile world powers at the time of the end and remain under their control until He returns to the earth (Luke 21:24).

    In one speech, US President Obama has not only fulfilled Bible prophecy but he has also set the stage for additional Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

    Thanks Mr Joe Green. I study the HOLY BIBLE too; and I know that THE BOOK OF REVELATION is coming into completeness! GOD can not lie! His word will not return to Him void. SATAN, however, is doing his job too! He/she is going fight, kick and scream until GOD tosses all of them and their demon angels into the eternal, everburning fires of hell. I'm trying hard not to be in that number. It would behoove all of you haters to take a little heed. You can win because 'Your arms are too short to box with GOD'!

      If the book of Revelation is coming true, would that make Barry the Antichrist?
