Andrew Cohen has a piece in today’s (Monday Jan 12th) New York Times highlighting the lack of Arabs or Persians in Obama’s possible Middle-East negotiating team. In fact, not only does this team not include any Arabs or Persians, it is made almost exclusively of American Jews. This fact was also highlighted by Joe Klein of Time Magazine.

Although this team has not been officialized yet, if it remains as expected, it will be yet another way Obama will showcase the fact that his “change you can believe in” is more of a “change you can dream about”.
