From The Times of Israel:

During a photo shoot prior to an interview session with the foreign press last week, the prime minister waxed nostalgic, lamenting in a Louis C.K.-esque manner over the failure to live in the moment among today’s selfie-crazed society.

“What do you do get out of all these pictures?”...

Excellent analysis in the left-wing Haaretz newspaper by journalist Ari Shavit, Waiting for the Palestinian Godot:

There are some moments a journalist will never forget. In early 1997, Yossi Beilin decided to trust me, and show me the document that proved that peace was within reach. The...

Fatah and Hamas have reached an agreement to put their differences behind them and form a unity government.

The New York Times reports:

Last month, Jeffrey Goldberg published an interview with President Barack Obama, ahead of Israeli Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu’s trip to the United States to attend the AIPAC conference. 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...

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:

Anyone who has read this blog the past months knows that I take the international boycott threat against Israel very seriously.

It is a venomous movement conceived by propagandists that has had some success in Europe, but few victories in the U.S.

Israel has lived all of its existence under boycott. The current boycott...

I don’t think it’s overstatement to say that Obama successfully has isolated Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by bringing the major world powers plus Germany into an Iran nuclear agreement publicly opposed by Netanyahu (and quietly by many Arab countries).

The perennial thorn in Obama’s Mideast side stands almost alone in publicly...

The nuclear agreement with Iran is being touted by the Obama administration as a significant step in keeping Iran from moving towards nuclear weapons.

In reality, the agreement is confirmation of Iran’s uranium enrichment program at a relatively high level, although some of the highest level enrichment is supposed to be suspended....

One of the problems with President Hassan Rouhani’s charm offensive is that he has a record.

It’s a record that shows that he excuses the death penalty for protesters, defends Iran for its sponsorship of terror and boasts that he duped the West ten years ago.

All of this is a matter of...
