Will Obama Abandon Israel If Elected?
By John W. Lillpop
How might an Obama administration impact America's foreign policy throughout the world, especially in the Middle East?
According to an article in the New York Post, the Reverend Jesse Jackson believes that Obama would bring fundamental changes to U.S. foreign policy particularly in the Middle East, where "decades of putting Israel's interests first" would end.
Jackson added that Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades will remain strong, but would lose a great deal of clout should Barack Obama become president.
Jackson hastens to point out that he is not an Obama adviser or policy wonk for Team Obama. He admits to be no more than a "supporter" of the Obama bid for the White House.
Still, Jackson's comments should be carefully considered by those who are concerned about the future of Israel in a part of the world dominated by Muslims.
