Bani Ershaid said that his party, the political arm of the influential Muslim Brotherhood movement, was "cautiously optimistic" over the change promised by Obama and believed that the "starting- point for this change should find expression in a correction of the US foreign policy on Palestine, Iraq and Afghanistan."

"A real change in the US policies cannot materialize without rectifying the erroneous attitude considering Israel an ally, withdrawing troops from Iraq," he said.
Uh, ok? Everyone except for a smattering of upset conservatives are "cautiously optimistic". So am I, in fact. And so is a fellow named Ershaid.

Ah, say again???? That guy's not really one of the good guys. IMO.

Are you agreeing that we need to ditch Israel?

Nope. You sure find a lot between the lines Just that he is merely one of millions of people, all over the world, that are "cautiously optimistic" about Obama's administration.

Wow, the spelling police are out in force since the election. I was unaware of the importance.

And no, I have many sources for information. At least until Dear Leader shuts them down.

It just so happens that the Islamic Action Front publishes in Arabic, I thought English might suit us lesser beings.

He happens to be the Secretary General of the Islamic Action Front, the main Jordanian political party. Not exactly just some dude walking around spewing opinions.

Ok, so? You feel he shouldn't be allowed to feel optimism? Have do you propose to keep him from it?

Are you actually reading the link??? Cause I sure don't get how you can't understand what I meant.

The whole organization is awaiting the US to disavow Israel now that BHO has been elected.

That's not disturbing????

Not like he's hoping for a free big screen tv for himself.

Oh, I read it. And, he is "cautiously optimistic". Which means absolutely nothing more than he's telling himself, "well, it could happen". So why are we supposed to be worried about that?

In 1967, a pilot named M.J. Adams was "cautiously optimistic" when he launched in his X-15 that it was the test flight that would make him one of the world's most sought after test pilots. Things didn't work out too well for him either. Cautious optimism is roughly 1 step above disappointment

I do think something's going to happen, but I also believe it may have happened even if McCain got elected althought with his history and support of the military and defense it may not have. But, countries seem to "test" the US after new presidents come to office. I could be wrong, but didn't the Cuban missle crisis happen shortly after Kennedy was sworn in? On the flip side, Iran released their hostages the day Reagan was sworn in to office (were they scared?). Even 9/11 happened only 8 months after Bush took office.

I wouldn't surprise me at all if something major happened either here or abroad. I only hope and pray that Obama will be strong and not want to "talk" it to death. But, if it DOES happen (god forbid) I will stand behind my country and my president (even if I didn't vote for him )

More from Russia on their missles.

If NATO is worried, we better be.

The President failed to congratulate Mr Obama or even to mention him by name during the 85-minute address televised live across Russia.

In a criticism directed at the US, Mr Medvedev said: “Mechanisms must be created to block mistaken, egotistical and sometimes simply dangerous decisions of certain members of the international community.” He accused the West of seeking to encircle Russia and blamed the US for encouraging Georgia’s “barbaric aggression” in the war over South Ossetia in August. He also gave warning that Russia would “not back down in the Caucasus”.

“The August crisis only accelerated the arrival of the crucial moment of truth. We proved, including to those who had been sponsoring the current regime in Georgia, that we are strong enough to defend our citizens and that we can indeed defend our national interests,” Mr Medvedev said.
