The New York Post reports that the Rev. Jesse Jackson is suggesting that the Obama administration's foreign policy will tilt against Israel in the Middle East. Is his opinion of President Barack Obama's foreign policy a preview of things to come for America and the region? I'm not sure what to think. Knowing that Jesse Jackson would like Obama's foreign policy to shift against Israel doesn't mean that it will. We'll have to wait and see. Rev. Jackson is claiming Obama as "family" so perhaps he has some insight. Or perhaps it's his wishful thinking.
But by the afternoon Jackson was already denying the report from the NY Post. Either way, Obama will have his hands full. The next flashpoint may be just now lit. An old, abandoned synagogue has been reopened just 100 meters from Temple Mount and the Al Aksa Mosque.
