Obama urged to reign in 'Global March to Jerusalem'

In an article published on Tuesday, Jonathan Schanzer urges President Obama to practice 'early intervention' against the 'Global March to Jerusalem.' The march is scheduled to take place on Friday.
The GMJ's international component may prove to be its Achilles' heel. The Obama administration still has time to warn Israel's neighbors that it will not tolerate a breach of the border. Similarly, Washington can warn other countries to block the exit of activists who are bound for the march.

Obama might even reach out to his old pastor, Jeremiah Wright, who sits on the GMJ advisory board.

The need for early intervention is compelling. The region is already on tilt, thanks to multiple Arab protest movements, and ongoing tensions over the Iranian nuclear program. The last thing we need now is a new conflict in the Palestinian territories.

A new uprising would be all the more dangerous if outsiders, with no ties to the land they'd be dragging to war, sparked it. They would pay no price for violence, and create untold unrest in a region that already has its fair share.
This sounds like an article that should have been written several weeks ago. We're now about 48 hours from the march, and I have seen no indication that President Obama is going to say a word to stop this from happening. That's not to say that anything he can say would necessarily help. But if he's going to try to intervene, he has shown no signs of it, and time is running short.

What could go wrong?

This global march BS is a part of obama's "outreach" to the mozlem world. He stirred it up, just like his people created the occupy movement. His continuing policy of divide and rule in the US, stirring blacks up against white people and Jews!! He is getting bolder and more vicious as the election nears.

Surely you meant "rein in " not "reign in".
