The President wasn’t at all friendly in the interview, warning (in Goldberg’s words) that “time is running out.” Roughly four weeks later, Mahmoud...

Israeli homes built on land captured in the 1967 war is the perennial go-to blame game for Palestinians’ hard line at negotiations.  But it’s just a negotiating ploy as to which Western leaders are all to eager to engage.

The other day, for example, David Weinberg wrote in Blame those Damn Settlements that removing the...

Obama Stranded

Face it, Obama has structured key portions of U.S. foreign policy on Vlad Putin playing nice.

Iran nukes? Check.
Syria chemical weapons and civil war? Check.
Egypt shifting allegiances? Check.
Nuclear arms treaty compliance? Check.
Central and Eastern Europe territorial integrity? Check.

On what key issues does Putin need Obama?

Yeah, now Vlad is threatening to leave the...

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.

The following seems quite characteristic of the president:

Jeffrey Goldberg has carved out what for a journalist covering the Middle East is an enviable niche — vigorously pro-Israel yet not anti-Obama.

When Bibi Netanyahu lectured Obama on the Middle East in a White House press conference in 2011, Goldberg leapt to Obama’s defense with the following declaration:
