An imaginary people with a vivid imagination

Yes, there's someone else aside from the Leftist mainstream media that is crediting President Obama with having precipitated what some in the Arab world are calling the 'Iranian intifadeh.' Can you guess who? Yes, the 'Palestinians.'
Noting that Teheran had been meddling in the internal affairs of the Palestinians, Lebanese and Egyptians over the past few years, another Palestinian columnist, Rajab Abu Siriyyeh, said he did not rule out the possibility that Obama's conciliatory approach to the Arabs and Muslims could have been one of the main reasons why tens of thousands of Iranians decided to take to the streets.

"They see the last election as an opportunity for real change in Iran," he said. "Ahmadinejad's policies have strained relations between his country and the Arab countries. We saw how Teheran recently dispatched a Hizbullah cell to attack Egypt."

Abu Siriyyeh said that the Arab world, which is worried about Iran's territorial ambitions in the Middle East, would not tolerate another four years of Ahmadinejad's rule.
Why didn't I think of that? Because they're an imaginary people with a vivid imagination. Heh.

By the way, the article I linked has a good round-up of reaction in the Arab world to what's going on in Iran. Read the whole thing.

People in the Arab World will just about read anything into Obama.
