The movement on the right from celebrating Arab democracy under Bush to fearing it under Obama is a real shift. It reveals the shallow veneer of neoconservatism's defense of Arab democracy when compared with its deep attachment to Greater Israel. "[Obama] has encouraged Arab street revolts against corrupt autocracies. Long-standing American allies, such as former Egyptian strongman Hosni Mubarak, were abandoned. Yet, contrary to his simplistic narrative of freedom fighters battling tyranny, Mr. Obama has helped pave the way for the triumph of Shariah democracy - the drive to establish a global Islamic caliphate. At his core, Mr. Obama is a radical secular progressive. Like all multiculturalists, he believes in one seminal myth: Mass poverty and oppression in the Third World is Americas fault. Hence, he champions anti-colonial 'liberation movements' - the uprisings of repressed peoples, especially those in the Muslim world, chafing under authoritarian rule. Yet he never bothers to ask: What comes next? What kind of regime replaces the previous one? The results are often even worse," - Jeffrey T. Kuhner, The Washington Times. .
