Don't lecture us: Arabs tell Obama, what do you think of Obamas plans?

Obama began his tour in Saudi Arabia and will deliver a speech in Cairo on Thursday to the world's 1.5 billion Muslims, after eight years of fraught ties under his predecessor George W. Bush.

"Don't be biased towards Israel, don't interfere in countries' internal affairs and don't give lessons in democracy," said an editorial in Egypt's state-owned Rose El-Youssef newspaper.

  • Well, it can't hurt to have a state visit. Of course, Obama is not going to be popular with every group. I heard interviews on public radio they did with Egyptians regarding the visit. They said it seemed about a 50/50 split of support and dislike, just with the people they were catching on the street. I will be interested to hear how it all goes over!

  • After King George mangled any good will we may have in the Arab world he's lucky if that is all they say to him. At least he is trying to make peace. The only thing King George knew how to do was make war, and it wasn't even on Ben Laden or anyone connected with 9/11.

  • I also want to point out that a state-owned newspaper in Egypt is exactly that...state owned. It is a mouthpiece for Mubarack who has been stealing elections and running the country like his own personal fiefdom for years...in other words, he is no fan of democracy.

  • This is REAL simple ladies...These people have been fighting since the beginning of time! They will NEVER EVER EVER EVER get along. EVER! No amount of talking , begging, pleading, or negotiating is EVER going to make this happen. They are all or nothing countries. They want want ALL of what they want and to hell with the other guys. I don't understand WHY people don't understand this. It's NEVER gonna happen. And you can call him "king George" ( and I bet you are one of those that thinks Obama deserves to be treated respectfully!) all you want but your big guy Clinton didn't get the job done either. This isn't a problem that JUST cropped up in the last 8 yrs!!!! DUH.

  • Everything about Obama is an open book...unfortunately it's titled "IDIOT". Too bad it takes the Arab's to point out this fact.
