    This is almost funny: Everyone seems to reject Obama's policies. Well, my heavens! It must be because he did not 'explain' them well enough! Really? Or (perhaps) it is because people are NOT stupider than Obama, and they actually think his POLICIES and NOT the 'explanations" are the problem?!? Duh. Obama policies legacy: Libya - incoherent failed policy, bombs civilians Egypt - incoherent policy, net result -another Iran Iran - failed diplomacy, stronger Iran radicals Syria - no policy - slaughter of citizens ignored. Somalia, Sudan, Africa - failure upon failure Oh and on the Middle East Peace Process? Obama's three contributions. 1. Manufacture a major rift with Israel because Israel wanted to build 4 apartment buildings in the Har Shlomo neighborhood of northern Jerusalem. 2. Ignore Palestinian Authority calls for "armed struggle", and joining with Hamas. 3. Call for Israel to be 9 miles wide, with a few land swaps here and there. Gee, can these POLICIES possibly be why Obama is not popular in Israel, America, and, for that matter, in the Arab world either, due to his ignoring the suffering of Arabs in Syria too? Nahhh . . . it must be because people don't "understand" Obama. He hasn't "explained" himself well! Yeah, that's it! What arrogance! (and, dishonesty.) Obama is a failure, whose foreign policy failures have helped spread misery throughout the Middle East.

Jeremy Corbyn at a pro-Palestinian rally in London, 2014.
Why Britain’s Labour Party has suddenly become synonymous with anti-Semitism
