In a recent essay, Jonathan Spyer identified the likely approach the anti-Netanyahu coalition – specifically Isaac Herzog of Labor and Tzipi Livni of Hatnua – will take in preparation for the Israeli elections on March 17. Spyer writes, “The belief underlying the Israeli center-left’s campaign is evidently that if Israel is ‘boxed in’...

Dueling editorials in the leading liberal papers today take vastly different approaches to the Obama administration’s ransoming of Alan Gross from Cuba.

On the one hand The New York Times hailed the move (and even featured the editorial translated into Spanish for those Cubans allowed to have internet access):

A post-mortem about the recently concluded P5+1 nuclear talks with Iran in The New York Times made a false equivalence between the two sides.

In the end, both were constrained by hard-line politics at home. Mr. Zarif, while friendly, outgoing and Westernized, had pushed to the very limits of his brief; he...

Remember when President Barack Obama said that the United States will “always have Israel’s back” when it comes to Israel’s security—especially in regards to Iran’s nuclear program?

Or when Secretary of State John Kerry said that with Iran “no deal was better than a bad deal?”

Few publications were more enthusiastic about last year’s election of “moderate” Hassan Rouhani as president of Iran than The New York Times. Perhaps some of that enthusiasm stemmed from the possibility of engaging in commercial enterprises with the regime in Tehran.
