Zionists will loose their clout under Obama – Says Reverend
Two days ago, the New York Post published a news article about Reverend Jesse Jacksons’ speech in France, stating that there will be “fundamental changes” in US foreign policy – saying America must “heal wounds” it has caused to other nations, revive its alliances and apologize for the “arrogance of the Bush administration.”
The most important change would occur in the Middle East, where “decades of putting Israel’s interests first” would end.(?)
Jackson believes that, although “Zionists who have controlled American policy for decades” remain strong, they’ll lose a great deal of their clout when Barack Obama enters the White House.
Jackson warns that he isn’t an Obama confidant or adviser, “just a supporter.” But he adds that Obama has been “a neighbor or, better still, a member of the family.” Jackson’s son has been a close friend of Obama for years, and Jackson’s daughter went to school with Obama’s wife Michelle.
“We helped him start his career,” says Jackson.
One thing to ponder on, is how well Florida Jews will look at this November 4th, election day; or if the media will label him as anti-semitic.
n.b. Lebanese are a Semitic race, whether Ghassanid Semite, or Canaanite Semitic.
