Last night the United Nations Security Council issued a Presidential Statement (less than a Resolution) demanding an immediate Gaza ceasefire.

When I heard parts of John Kerry’s news conference today, I couldn’t believe what I was hearing. He was talking as if he’s trying to create a way to bolster Hamas when the fighting is over.

Sure enough, Barak Ravid, a well-regarded reporter for the left-wing Israeli Haaretz newspaper presents a...

John Kerry has proposed a seven-day truce, during which time there would be negotiations over a longer-term ceasefire.

Hamas reportedly is going to accept the proposal, but that’s far from official.

The Israeli cabinet is discussing the proposal as we speak. Concerns are that Hamas, having rejected a ceasefire early on...

Western Wall Jerusalem

Australia has announced that it no longer will refer to East Jerusalem as “occupied” territory.

This is an enormous and important contribution to Middle East peace, as it corrects the false narrative that Israel’s recapturing of territory illegally occupied by Jordan from 1948-1967 is not justifiably part of Israel.

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...

Or is this story even true? Is it actually one of those “good-cop/bad-cop” tales instead?

It’s difficult to say, but I vote ever-so-slightly for “true.” My opinion of John Kerry is very low, but I think more of him than I do of Obama.
