An editorial in The New York Times today about the ongoing P5+1 nuclear talks with Iran warns about the dire consequences of the two sides not reaching an agreement.

The consequences of failure to reach an accord would be serious, including the weakening of President Hassan Rouhani of Iran and his foreign...

Maryland hasn’t gone purple. Yet.

But we have a Republican Governor for just the third time in 48 years. (Spiro Agnew was elected in 1966 and served until 1969, when he went to White House as Richard Nixon’s vice president. Bob Ehrlich was elected in 2002, but was defeated for re-election four years later...

The senior official in the Obama administration who referred to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “chickshit” probably has much more courageous things than Operation Isotope on his resume.

Operation Isotope was a raid involving the rescue of hijacked Sabena Flight 571, and Netanyahu was a participant, along with another Israeli Prime...

Yesterday Prof Jacobson rightly assessed Jeffrey Goldberg’s The Crisis in U.S.-Israel Relations Is Officially Here as describing a crisis “in Obama-Israel relations.”

Although the White House has offered a disavowal of the profane insult made by one of Goldberg’s sources, the full substance of his remarks needs to be rebutted.

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?”

They were lying.

I was in class yesterday during Obama’s press conference, in which he announced the obvious: We have no strategy as to ISIS. So I didn’t get to watch it live and see the instant reaction.

There was Bad, Good and Worse news.

There are more apparent rifts between Israel and the U.S. administration, this time over an interruption of Hellfire missiles at the request of the White House and State Department.

Normal channels apparently were followed, but the administration reportedly has its nose out of joint because the U.S. has been sidelined as Israel...

Forget policy positions, etc.

Hillary Clinton is just bad as a candidate.

She’s awkward, artificial, superficial, and awkward (but I repeat myself).

She proved it with the disastrous book rollout and insistence that she’s not really rich and struggled after she and Bill left the White House.

Now she decided to distance herself from Obama’s...

Post-9/11, I read a quip that went something like this: “I just realized what the problem is with the 21st century. We got the numbers mixed up. It’s not 2001, it’s 1200.”

In the ensuing years, barbarism and religious wars have made a strong comeback—not that they’d ever really...

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu reportedly told the U.S. Ambassador to Israel “not to ever second guess me again” when it comes to Hamas, after Hamas’ refusal and eventual breach of ceasefire agreements.

Did he have a point?

The international community in its zeal to solve the conflict between Israel and the Palestinians makes plenty...
