The head of a messianic Jewish ministry says President Obama's support for the so-called "Arab Spring" is reaping disastrous consequences.

Recently new Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi attended an Islamic prayer meeting in which the local Imam urged Allah to "destroy the Jews and their supporters." Morsi is seen on a video mouthing "amen" to these sentiments. Groups like the Anti-Defamation League and the Simon Wiesenthal Center have condemned Morsi for attending the anti-Semitic event.

Jan Markell is founder and director of Olive Tree Ministries in Minnesota. She says the situation in the Middle East has deteriorated greatly -- and that much of the responsibility for that lies with the U.S.'s current administration.

Markell, Jan (Olive Tree Ministries)"This is the fruit of the so-called Arab Spring," she says. "I don't believe there is any way even a new president can correct the damage that's been done in the Middle East thanks to the cooperative efforts of our White House and our State Department."

Markell believes countries like Egypt and Libya were more stable before the "Arab Spring."

"There was stability under [former Egyptian President Hosni] Mubarak. Even under [Libya's] Moammar Gadhafi there was stability compared to what it's turning into," she tells OneNewsNow. "It's al Qaida and it's the Muslim Brotherhood. It's absolute evil in these various Middle Eastern countries."
