President Obama’s foreign policy towards “democratic transitions” in the Arab-Muslim world has changed invariably during his short five years tenure in the White House. In 2008, just before the election, President Obama, then a first time Illinois Senator, positioned himself and the democrats as an alternative to the Bush’s foreign policy in the Arab-Muslim world.  He promised to re-look on the issues pertaining to the presence of American troops in Iraq, nuclear developments in Iran, and terrorism networks, Israel-Palestine conflict, and many others. For many Americans, and even Muslims in Arab world, the promise by President Obama to change the focus of U.S policy opened a new chapter in the relationship between the two sides.  However, once President Obama took power, the short honeymoon ended in a few months and a wave of resistance to American policies soared in the region.  From several polls that have been conducted during the Obama administration, results shows that there is less support of U.S in the Middle East compared to the Bush Administration. There are many factors that have contributed to the rapid change in the relationship between the two sides.
