it is most likely true. There is no upside to him lying about this.If he lies, regardless of how big an anti-semite he is, he loses credibility with his base. After all, this is not something that can be hidden for long. We will know soon enough which way Obama's wind will be blowing. I am sure that he will interfere big time against Israel, otherwise he would not be surrounded with the most virulently antisemitic foreign policy team he could possibly have picked. Even though I believe that Olmert timed this operation to gain electoral points for the left, he also knew that it would be easier under Bush's watch.
