During the unraveling of the Ottoman Empire, the embattled leadership ordered the forced deportation of ethnic Armenians from the region. Nobody has ever been able to say for certain how many people were slaughtered in the years following the order, but experts estimate that somewhere between 300,000 and 1.5 million ethnic...

One of my early posts at Legal Insurrection, on November 11, 2008, was Is It Time For Conservatives To Sit Down In The Snow?.

The post analogized what conservatives were about to experience in the aftermath of Obama’s first victory to the experience of Soviet Jewish Refusenik Anatoly (Nathan) Sharansky. I...

“This is the new America. We had better get used to it.”

Those were the words of an Israeli TV analyst upon learning that Obama is open to negotiating an immediate lifting of sanctions on Iran as part of a nuclear deal —...

There have been a number of reactions to the Corker-Menendez bill, which provides for Congressional oversight of whatever nuclear deal the administration makes with Iran. It passed out of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee yesterday with a 19-0 vote.

I visited the State Department’s website earlier this week and I was greeted by an item hailing the 45th anniversary of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty (NPT).

After hailing the treaty the article goes on to say more explicitly, “[i]f we didn’t already have the NPT, we would desperately need it today.”

Ayatollah Khamenei

Within hours of the White House celebrating a supposed Iran nuclear framework “deal,” it became apparent that the various sides — the U.S., the Iranians and the Europeans — had very different understandings of the deal.

Those competing narratives now have moved to the stage of open declarations by senior Iranian officials...

Vice President

Will 2016 be the year of the foreign policy presidential cycle?

It might be, if President Obama keeps up his march to mediocrity. The President’s time in the White House has been plagued with an apparent desire to make America look as weak (I’m sure he would say “humbled”) as possible....

Remember this? It’s one of the few papers that Obama wrote while in college or law school that is still available, a 1983 article that appeared in the Columbia campus paper.

The article is mostly straight reportage and quotes about the Nuclear Freeze Movement, featuring organizations called “Arms Race Alternatives” (ARA) and...

I just booked my plane tickets to visit Israel in May.

Maybe I’ll call it an Apology Tour.

I’ll let Israelis know that the current administration, with its childish chickens**t taunting treatment of Israel, does not represent the American people, who overwhelmingly support Israel. (Will this violate the Logan Act?)

Fortunately, I have the...

The Obama administration has vented its fury at Israel based on Benjamin Netanyahu’s speech to Congress, and pre-election statements.

None of those issues justified the complete fury coming from the administration. It just didn’t add up.

Now The Wall Street Journal reveals the back story — one in which the Israelis found...

The nuclear negotiations between the West and Iran may have reached an impasse over the timing of Iran getting relief from sanctions.

This is how The Guardian broke down the differences between the United States and the French on Friday:

Charles Krauthammer began a 1999 column like this:

Having failed to topple Saddam Hussein or Slobodan Milosevic, Bill Clinton had to settle for Benjamin Netanyahu.

In a characteristic display of partisan glee, Clinton toasted political consultant Robert Shrum on Tuesday night (reports Lloyd Grove in The Washington Post) to congratulate him (and implicitly, the...
