IF Obama is Elected will Israel not be one of our Closest allies any longer? Will the Radical Middle East Countries feel like they can "Push Israel into the sea"? And will Obama Let them as President of the United States if elected?

Take a Close Hard Look at who Obama's Friends and Adviser's are.....Folks.......

close obamas friends advisers folks close obamas friends advisers folks

If you think they do not have influence and if you think Obama does not share their values then you are sadly mistaken, Obama attended a Racist Church with Rev.Wright and Rev. Wright Married Michelle and Barack Obama, that Church gave Louis Farrakhan a known Racist Muslim its Highest Award! Once again Obama attended that Church for over 20 Years and if you think him and his wife do not share the same views as Jesse Jackson, Rev.Wright and Louis Farrakhan then you are just not opening your eyes and seeing who they really are and what they truly value.


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.

Jesse Jackson.....................
"decades of putting Israel's interests first" would end.

EVIAN, FRANCE

PREPARE for a new America: That's the message that the Rev. Jesse Jackson conveyed to participants in the first World Policy Forum, held at this French lakeside resort last week.

He promised "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.

"Obama is about change," Jackson told me in a wide-ranging conversation. "And the change that Obama promises is not limited to what we do in America itself. It is a change of the way America looks at the world and its place in it."

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. "And then we were always there to help him move ahead. He is the continuation of our struggle for justice not only for the black people but also for all those who have been wronged."

Will Obama's election close the chapter of black grievances linked to memories of slavery? The reverend takes a deep breath and waits a long time before responding.

"No, that chapter won't be closed," he says. "However, Obama's victory will be a huge step in the direction we have wanted America to take for decades."

Jackson rejects any suggestion that Obama was influenced by Marxist ideas in his youth. "I see no evidence of that," he says. "Obama's thirst for justice and equality is rooted in his black culture."

But is Obama - who's not a descendant of slaves - truly a typical American black?

Jackson emphatically answers yes: "You don't need to be a descendant of slaves to experience the oppression, the suffocating injustice and the ugly racism that exists in our society," he says. "Obama experienced the same environment as all American blacks did. It was nonsense to suggest that he was somehow not black enough to feel the pain."

Is Jackson worried about the "Bradley effect" - that people may be telling pollsters they favor the black candidate, but won't end up voting for him?

"I don't think this is how things will turn out," he says. "We have a collapsing economy and a war that we have lost in Iraq. In Afghanistan, we face a resurgent Taliban. New threats are looming in Pakistan. Our liberties have been trampled under feet . . . Today, most Americans want change, and know that only Barack can deliver what they want. Young Americans are especially determined to make sure that Obama wins."

He sees a broad public loss of confidence in the nation's institutions: "We have lost confidence in our president, our Congress, our banking system, our Wall Street and our legal system to protect our individual freedoms. . . I don't see how we could regain confidence in all those institutions without a radical change of direction."

Jackson declines to be more concrete about possible policy changes. After all, he insists, he isn't part of Obama's policy team. Yet he clearly hopes that his views, reflecting the position of many Democrats, would be reflected in the policies of an Obama administration.

On the economic front, he hopes for "major changes in our trading policy."

"We cannot continue with the open-door policy," he says. "We need to protect our manufacturing industry against unfair competition that destroys American jobs and creates ill-paid jobs abroad."

Would that mean an abrogation of the NAFTA treaty with Canada and Mexico?

Jackson dismisses the question as "premature": "We could do a great deal without such dramatic action."

His most surprising position concerns Iraq. He passionately denounces the toppling of Saddam Hussein as "an illegal and unjust act." But he's now sure that the United States "will have to remain in Iraq for a very long time."

What of Obama's promise to withdraw by 2010? Jackson believes that position will have to evolve, reflecting "realities on the ground."

"We should work with our allies in Iraq to consolidate democratic institutions there," he says. "We must help the people of Iraq decide and shape their future in accordance with their own culture and faith."

On Iran, he strongly supports Obama's idea of opening a direct dialogue with the leadership in Tehran. "We've got to talk to tell them what we want and hear what they want," Jackson says. "Nothing is gained by not talking to others."

Would that mean ignoring the four UN Security Council resolutions that demand an end to Iran's uranium-enrichment program? Jackson says direct talks wouldn't start without preparations.

"Barack wants an aggressive and dynamic diplomacy," he says. "He also wants adequate preparatory work. We must enter the talks after the ground has been prepared," he says.

Jackson is especially critical of President Bush's approach to the Israel-Palestine conflict.

"Bush was so afraid of a snafu and of upsetting Israel that he gave the whole thing a miss," Jackson says. "Barack will change that," because, as long as the Palestinians haven't seen justice, the Middle East will "remain a source of danger to us all."

"Barack is determined to repair our relations with the world of Islam and Muslims," Jackson says. "Thanks to his background and ecumenical approach, he knows how Muslims feel while remaining committed to his own faith."

    Obama will defend ISRAEL.however,it must be understood that ISRAEL is very capable of defending itself.it has all the modern weapons supplied by the US to destroy its enemies.however,Isreal is not perfect.and without blame for its problems.nor is it the 51ST STATE as Sen.Lieberman views it.AMERICA is the only nation capable of bringing peace to the middle east.it cannot accomplish this if it does not position itself as neutral.to declare itself as an uncompromiseing ally of ISRAEL as the BUSH administration did is counter productive.unless all your interested in is the JEWISH vote.

    Israel is in trouble. Barack's friends and acquaintances are very Anti-Israel. Israel is only about 3 miles one direction and about 4 miles the other. It's not a large country at all. All the Muslim countries have attacked them and are very hostile and want to annihilate them..They have only lasted as long as they have because of our help...and if you look at the globe, our country isn't a large piece on the earth either. What makes us Great is our Patriotic people, Our Economy because of Democracy, and our Technology.
    The people who he associates with all hate the Jews. It's pathetic how he conveniently tries to disassociate people that stirs up controversy when it's politically convenient for him to do so....He speaks with too many tongues.. I wish people would pay attention...

    I feel sorry for the Jews. There are not many of them, and their country is so small.

    you dont even have to read between the lines on this article to see the deep seated racism that is present here. This is the first time that I have really read anything that even remotely describes what the TRUE Obama agenda is here.

    This entire campaign has been nothing but side stepping the true issues - but here they are plainly revealed by a very simpethetic and admittedly close supporter of Obama - his good friend Jesse Jackson.

    There is not much time in the election cycle for this to creep into the mainstream media - the same media that will do everything they can to suppress it until it's beyond obvious that its a serious issue. Then they will typically deflect it as an irrelevant issue brought up by more "racists, neo-con, hillbillys, and moose hunters" . But here it is in plain english spoken by one of their own - Barack Obama has plans to withdraw support from Isreal and at the same time engage in conversations with Iran and Islam.

    In the Bible - God made a promise to Isreal. He said " I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you". For our nation to turn away from our long standing support of Isreal would be not only foolish - but it would be in direct contradiction to the faith that Obama claims to subscribe to. Then again - Maybe he's not really w...

    you would think that if there were any group of people - specifically any race of people - that would be able to identify with the persecution that Jews have gone through it would be people of color. But here you have "Rev Jesse Jackson" - candidly sharing about converstaions that he has had with Obama that are truely racist in spirit and actually siding with Islam and specifically against Isreal.

    This may not be the end of the world - but it sure does seem to be their intention that it's the end of the world as we know it.

    How can anyone not wonder why Israel has lasted so long in the midst of the larger nations around them, by people who are constantly and strategically trying to annihilate them. They were able to defend themselves from being attacked by several nations at once. Regardless what religion we are in, they are God's chosen people..When Jesus comes again, it will be because of them.
