Popular and widely read Egyptian newspaper Al Wafd published the above picture today portraying U.S. President Barack Hussein Obama as Satan himself. The unflattering picture has been making the rounds on Facebook in the Middle East and, according to Al Wafd, is representative of the hatred growing numbers of people in the region have for the American president, thanks to his staunch and unwavering support for Islamists and jihadiis — whether in Nigeria, Libya, Egypt, or Syria — even as they terrorize, murder, rape, and burn down Christian churches, that is, even as they engage in diabolical activities.

War-weary ‘real’ Americans appear to have the ear of their representatives (for once). Message such as “you don’t stop a war by getting involved and shooting more,” and “once you start launching missiles, anything can happen,” appear to have moved both the staunchest tea-party Republican and the most anti-war Democrats to shun the position of Boehner and Pelosi. AsBloomberg reports, only about 20 members (or 5%) of the House is publicly supporting a military strike.
