At this exact moment, Americans are on their ways to vote. Obama or Romney?
For some people, it is not much of a question, their answer is clear. Whereas others are simply not sure who of these two can handle the country better, and keep America on its way up the ladder, and not take it down.
For all I know, Obama is simply more popular. Yet what I have been thinking about much lately, is who of these two would work for the best interest of everyone, including the region?
The thing is, on my way to university, I have often been hearing discussions on the radio going on among Arab-Americans. At a time that most people consider Romney the second Bush to come, most of those conversations were more supportive of Obama.
These Arab-Americans viewed Romney as a person who would not consider the Arab population, and not be fair while handling the foreign policy and interacting with different regions. Here, I was grabbed by one of the students who said, “even Obama has a plan to erase Palestinian presence”. Her point of view showed neither support to either candidates. She explained how Obama is a president who openly acknowledged the presence of the Israeli state, and showed absolute support to it, despite the latest political arguments.
I have to agree with her. Obama sincerely made it clear in one of his speeches that he supports Israel disregarding Palestine as an original owner of the land.
The reason I was once a fan of Obama is because he was change in himself. He was elected a president at a time most people didn’t think he would make it, and he is humble and close to the people, trying to resolve every problem America faces. Yet the cause I am mostly interested in, and the one that the next President of America will have a say in, is the Palestinian cause.
Both these candidates will continue their full support of Israel, despite claiming to care for justice and freedom and peace; three things Israel will never let the region enjoy. Political reasons, or whichever other reason, no American president will ever be fair regarding this matter. It is simply not of their interest to lose their one obvious ally in this area of the world.
America is now voting for its next president, and whether he makes a change in the social security system, or the taxing system, the foreign policy will always remain against the benefit of the homeless Palestinians.
