Double blast against Obama shows strain on Qaeda

LONDON (Reuters) – A double blast from al Qaeda against Barack Obama shows shows the group is as worried as ever by the persuasive skills of the U.S. president, who makes a speech to Muslims on Thursday.

Are you stupid, or are you just pawns to the idiocy of internet news? What a stupid and irresponsible headline, double blast agains Obama !!!!!!!!!!!!

In his speech, President Obama “was rather mild on Israel and did not tell us what he proposes to do if Israel rejects peace with its neighbors and continues to subjugate Palestinians and occupy their land,” one Muslim said.

Even though Americans would like to do everything we can to make peace in the mid-east, as the only nation that truly supports Israel, we will not abandon them. We must not abandon them.
