After Israel Trip Arab Media Labels Obama a ‘Sycophant’
Ynet – The Arab world was following US President Barack Obama’s historic speech in Jerusalem very closely on Thursday. After a cool meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, Obama spoke before hundreds of cheering students in Jerusalem’s International Convention Center and asked the young crowd to push the politicians towards the path of peace.
Arab media mentioned that the US president identified with the suffering of the Palestinian people, emphasized his threats toward Iran and Syria but did not spare their criticism for Obama’s warm embrace of the Israeli public. “Israeli Obama is a sycophant,” said the media.
