Barack Obama Wins Reelection: Mid East Faces Nuclear Iran, Brotherhood Grip


DEBKAfile.com / November 7, 2012
“Barack Obama has won re-election as President of the United States. The prospect of another four years of Obama in the White House fills some Middle East nations, including the Persian Gulf and Israel, with trepidation.

“They envisage a foreign policy that continues to focus on hitching US influence in the Muslim world — Sunni and Shiite alike — on to a wagon led by Iran as the first Islamic Shiite Muslim nuclear power and the sponsorship of Muslim Brotherhood rule of Sunni Arab nations.

“For Israel, this policy translates bleakly into American backing for the two most forbidding ideological foes it has faced in all its 63 years: Iran, whose leaders call openly for Israel’s extinction — even from the UN platform — although this is achievable only by nuclear aggression; and the hostile Muslim Brotherhood.”
