Robert Kagan of Brookings takes the long view, and it’s not good. Even the most eloquent speech by Netanyahu will not add more than marginally to what has already been said and heard. But even if the drama of the situation and the prime minister’s eloquence were to highlight the already well-articulated case against a […]

By accepting a Republican invitation to address the US Congress next week, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has not only upset the White House and the Democrats, he’s also rattled America’s largely liberal Jewish community. “Like an increasing number of American Jews, I want to make it clear that Netanyahu does not speak for me,” […]

DURA, West Bank — Hatem Amro’s donkey is as scrawny as his salary. In January, Amro, who teaches Islamic studies in the southern West Bank as one of 180,000 employees of the Palestinian Authority, coped with a 40 percent pay cut by buying a short, spindly donkey for his nine-mile commute to school. It’s just […]

TheIsraeli prime minister is not fair and balanced. Senators Dick Durbin (D-IL) and Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) invited Netanyahu to a closed-door meeting during the same visit, as at least two dozen Democrats have announced they will boycott his congressional address. No dice. “Though I appreciate your kind invitation to meet with Democratic Senators, I believe […]

Any thought that Benjamin Netanyahu’s visit to Congress isn’t a further attempt to bash President Obama has been put to rest. The Likud party ad, as translated by BuzzFeed, argues that the White House has actively opposed Israeli interests before — including that one time where it opposed the creation of the State of Israel […]

Palestinian Authority (PA) chairman Mahmoud Abbas has threatened to stop security coordination with Israel if the country continues to withhold the PA”s tax revenue, a senior PA official said Sunday, according to The Associated Press (AP). Nabil Shaath said Abbas warned European leaders on a trip to Europe last week that Palestinian officials would discuss […]

The White House is exploring options to address Benjamin Netanyahu’s sneakily-arranged visit to the Republican congress. Among them: a presidential interview with a prominent journalist known for coverage of the rift between Obama and Netanyahu, multiple Sunday show television appearances by senior national security aides and a pointed snub of America’s leading pro-Israel lobby, which […]

The Israeli Prime minister is exploiting the rift between Republicans and Democrats, and firmly siding with the right, even though the overwhelming majority of American Jews vote Democratic. Some American Jews, to be sure, support the Republicans, but for most, to back a party so hostile to minority and immigrant rights is all but unnatural. […]
