The implications of Obama’s foreign policy team for the Middle East

Further to my recent post on the shift in US Israeli-Palestine policy, interested readers may wish to read a summary from the Middle East Forum’s Associate Fellow, Marilyn Stern.

In her concise account Ms Stern summarises a briefing given by phone to the Forum during President Obama’s official visit to Israel. This came from Jonathan S. Tobin, senior online editor of Commentary magazine and writer for its “Contentions” blog.

Many commentators in the US have great difficulties with and thus remarked adversely upon Obama’s new leadership of his foreign policy team.  This issue is summarised by Mr Tobin and he then speculates whether such a team can carry out their chief’s shift in policy.
