A central thesis in the standard approach to the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations is that Israel faced a demographic time bomb.

John Kerry used that claim as part of his assertion that Israel could become an “an apartheid state with second-class citizens—or it ends up being a state that destroys the capacity of Israel...

In the wake of Fatah’s embrace of Hamas earlier this week there has been a very interesting reaction. Actually, the reaction has been interesting because it’s been mostly non-existent.

Though the New York Times and Washington Post have reported on Fatah’s betrayal of the American sponsored peace process, neither has published an...

Is there anything that the U.N. does right?

I noticed a story earlier this week, Apology for UN refusal to stop Rwanda genocide. The context for the apology is the twentieth anniversary of the Rwandan genocide.

Former New Zealand ambassador Colin Keating issued the rare apology during a council meeting to commemorate the 20th...

When the Cornell Students for Justice in Palestine tried to schedule their last-minute anti-Israel Divestment Resolution for Passover week, I assumed that was something isolated to Cornell.  (The attempt was defeated yesterday.)

But maybe not.

Passover starts on the night of April 14, and seders are held that night and the night of April...

Opposing the anti-Israel Boycott Divest and Sanction movement is serious business, so it’s natural that we tend to be serious about it.
