The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has expressed concern over reports that President-elect Barack Obama and his senior aides have refused all briefings on the current situation in
from the Israeli government and its officials. In this way, he has been depriving himself of information that will be central to his deliberations on the Middle East, a subject on which he has promised to "hit the ground running" when he assumes office as President on January 20. GazaAccording to a report in the Wall Street Journal, "Mr. Obama and his senior aides have declined briefings from the Israeli government on the current crisis, said two people familiar with the Israeli outreach. Some foreign diplomats said Mr. Obama's apparent reluctance to speak out on the Middle East is feeding uncertainty over how the international community should move forward on in the months ahead. GazaA spokesman for Mr. Obama's transition team said the president-elect has ruled out virtually all contact with foreign governments ahead of the inauguration so as not to give conflicting signals on policy."
