Obama's Middle East politics extremely impopular in.. . the Middle East
Jim Lobe of IPS writes about interesting results of a Pew Rearch Center's Global Attitudes Project about Obama's freign policy. Most interesting is the all time low Obama's Israel-Palestine policy scores. in countries like Egypt, Jordan and Lebanon it is well above the 80 % disapproval, or even close to 90%. Also in Europe, Latin-America and Asia it is considered far from succesful. Also the enthousiasm for his Iraq and Afghanistan policies is not that great in the same countries.

Overall Obama's performance is still rather popular. It is, however, declining, particularly in Middle eastern and Muslim countries.
