Why is "making peace between Israel and the Arabs" in the Middle East so important? How many people die from the status quo every week or everyday?
I just checked out two international news sites to see what the headlines are in their Middle East page.
Officials: Wave of bombings in Iraq kills 33
Syria's Muslim Brotherhood faces uphill battle
Iraqi Kurdish leader vows to defend Kurds in Syria
Bomb near park in central Iraq kills 4
Activists: 20 people killed in Syrian air raid
And finally the first mention of Israel... Sinai group says it was target of Israeli drone

Remember that cartoon is in the International Herald Tribune aka the New York Times. The op-eds and editorials are Leftist and pro-Democrat, but even thy are seeing Obama for what he really is and using him at the butt of jokes.
Obama was joked about in 288 monologues on late night television, over twice as many as Weiner, who came in second with 120 jokes, according to a Center for Media and Public Affairs study on late night jokes between January 1 and June 30.I guess it doesn't bother Obama all that much. He's in his second term and according to the United States Constitution, that's his last one. So he's having the last laugh unfortunately.
Five late night talk show hosts were examined for the study: Jay Leno, David Letterman, Craig Ferguson, Jimmy Fallon, and Jimmy Kimmel. Among them, Letterman was the only one to tell more jokes about Republicans (139) than Democrats (102). Fallon, on the other hand, had the highest Democrat (240) to Republican (76) joke ratio.
Here is a sample of some of jokes, provided courtesy of CMPA:
I was going to start off tonight with an Obama joke, but I don't want to get audited by the IRS, so forget that. – LenoA lot of critics are now comparing President Obama to President Nixon. The good news for Obama? At least he's no longer being compared to President Carter. – LenoJoe Biden said that some people buy guns because owning one feels like driving a Ferrari. At which point, Obama was like, "stop helping." – FallonPolls indicate that the American public actually misses George W. Bush … Let's see, two wars, an economic collapse and mortgage crisis. Ah it's hard not to be nostalgic. Those were the days! – Letterman
