Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood official Issam Al-Aryan was pessimistic Wednesday that Obama’s foreign policy would change significantly during his second term in office. “Accepting the will of the Arab people is the most important change,” wrote Aryan on his Facebook page. “We must rely on ourselves and on our resources and build our country.
