If Israel continues to go down its present very narrow and rigid definition of security it may achieve that particular ambition, but at the expense of all of those other crucial interests, needs, and goals of the Zionist project.
Earlier this month, the U.K. newspaper the Telegraph published an article voicing how Americans feel about the Middle East: "worried, but more than an...
The administration's Iraq policy has failed. The U.S. is more entangled in conflict and war; Americans have been killed in retaliation for Washington's intervention; the Islamic State is still advancing; U.S. allies continue to free ride on America; Washington hopes to square a nonexistent circle in Syria.
Foreign languages help free us from ethnocentrism, the delusion that we alone are the measure of all things human, and they connect us to a larger, saner, more humane world.
My father's impassioned plea for military assistance from November 1956 is more relevant today than ever. As long as organized Kurdish resistance continues, we must make the demand for arms to the Kurds our insistent cry.
As the deadline for the final nuclear deal between the P5+1 and the Islamic Republic becomes closer, and as the world powers appear to be softening their demands on Iran's nuclear capabilities, Netanyahu's fear in the signing of a final nuclear deal and his objective is to postpone this process between Iran and six world powers.
While it may not be popular with fellow thugs, the Islamic State has managed to take over much of Iraq and Syria. Predictably, Washington seems more interested in assigning blame for the situation than dealing with it. Sen. John McCain, for instance.
That word "indispensable" is often used without any indication of what exactly our indispensability consists of. Evidence from the last 13 years, however, suggests that we have been exceptionally, indispensably, undeniably, inscrutably important when it comes to destabilizing significant chunks of the planet and encouraging the growth of jihadist organizations.

Sadly, the answer is "no." We have not had one since Barack Obama entered the Oval Office six years ago.
President Obama has faced a lot of criticism lately for not being "tough enough" on ISIS. Most of it seems to boil down to this: Why won't he do what we always do?
We need to find it in our hearts to cross cultural and gendered lines to address the literal and metaphorical diseases plaguing us at home. And if we haven't yet found it our hearts, maybe we can find it in our pockets.
As controversy continues to stir around the publication of his book Worthy Fights, former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta has announced plans to tim...
Federica Mogherini proved successful in reaching the ultimate goal for women leaders: she found her voice. Though this will not be enough to guarantee her success, it is a great start.
As the president outlined on September 10, an instrumental component of the anti-ISIL counterterrorism policy is the train-and-advisery mission that the U.S. and its Arab partners will set up in Saudi Arabia for the moderate Syrians.
The reality is that the president seems to prefer indulging in wishful thinking about how he would like the world to be. That's the exact opposite of a "realist" or a "pragmatist" -- when it comes to foreign policy especially, Obama is a "fantasist."
