I'm Going to Take a Break, Sorry

So, are the changing winds bad news for Israeli journalism, or for the feasibility of the two state solution? Not necessarily. Many believe that the overkill and over-dramatization used by Ha'Aretz and its likes achieved only hatred, not peace.

Why the Right Wing Is Angry That We Blocked War With Iran

Preventing an Iranian nuclear bomb has been a key goal of Ploughshares Fund and many other security experts for decades. To suggest otherwise -- as David Samuels did -- is absurd.

Journalists Dispute Claim They Helped Sell White House Iran Deal

From Cairo to Goldberg

James Zogby | Posted 04.30.2016 | Politics
James Zogby

The recent article in "The Atlantic" was disappointing in that it presents a portrait of a President who appears to have given up trying to deliver on the promise of his 2009 Cairo speech. He has resigned himself to an "unfixable" Middle East and "thrown in the towel", blaming the Arabs for this failure.

Despite this distressing state of affairs, we continue our efforts to provide leadership for our community and a forum for compassionate leaders like Martin O'Malley to address critical issues facing our nation. It is only way to advance desperately needed change in our politics and policies.

Jeffrey Goldberg's Assault on Free Speech

Chaker Khazaal

Let me be clear, I have no sympathy for the Muslim Brotherhood and would never cast a vote in their favor. However, labeling the Arabic HuffPost as a mouthpiece for the Muslim Brotherhood is not only patently false, it is an attempt to constrain free speech that endangers journalists who are already suffering for simply reporting facts, or their insight, on Arab issues.

Public Figures and Petty Hatred

Here at the Anti-Defamation League, we get it all the time. Most recently when we criticized Jarryd Hayne, a former Australian rugby star and now a running back on the San Francisco 49ers, for revisiting the ancient charge blaming Jews for the death of Christ.

Matalin-Reagan Debate Obama's Rope-a-Dope Strategy in ISIS Crisis

HuffPost Radio | Posted 09.07.2014 | Politics
HuffPost Radio


"Is 'dither' the Republican word for 'think'?", asks Lawrence O'Donnell. So our duo discuss both sides: the-tan-man-has-no-plan-"yet" vs. he's a deliberate president trying to get the substance and coalition right. In his Wednesday address to the Nation, will he say -- their boots, our bombs? Then: Putin in Ukraine, Rick Perry in court, the ALS in America.

Shrum-Frum Debate Clinton/Obama and Cops/Minorities

Maliki out-Abadi in; Gregory out-Todd in; Sterling out-Ballmer in. In a week of strife, Shrum and Frum debate two other enduring clashes: was Hillary's comment on Obama's "not doing stupid 'stuff'" nasty or innocent (she thinks the latter); how should cops patrol communities after Brown/Garner?

The Blind Alley of J Street and Liberal American Zionism

Norman Solomon | Posted 03.24.2014 | Politics
Norman Solomon

What does J Street's motto "Pro-Israel, Pro-Peace" really mean? That question calls for grasping the context of Zionism among Jews in the United States -- aspects of history, largely obscured and left to archives, that can shed light on J Street's current political role.

Language, Culture Can Have Dire Political Consequences for the King of Jordan

When the Atlantic published an article by Jeffrey Goldberg about his interview and impressions of King Abdullah of Jordan, Jordan was swept in a political storm that has yet to quiet down.

King Abdullah: Muslim Brotherhood Are 'Wolves In Sheep's Clothing"

It is still, on occasion, good to be the king. It is not necessarily good to be the king of a Middle Eastern country that is bereft of oil; nor is ...

James Fallows "Slithers" Into My Recent Reference to Gertrude Stein

James Fallows wrote of Romney, "there is so little there, there." Isn't it funny that a few days earlier, in a column comparing Romney to Hemingway's Jake Barnes, I wrote of the Republican nominee that "there is no there there"?

Passover Is A Time To Renew Jewish-African American Common Cause

The Israelites may have left Egypt, but in many ways, we still experience Egypt. Humans still treat people who are different as "other." Until that stops, we are all still enslaved to prejudice and its consequences.

Barack Obama Is Such a Traditional Jew Sometimes

George W. Bush was, in his own way, a philo-Semite, but he never would have made such a member-of-the-tribe kind of joke as Barack Obama did when I recently handed him a copy of the New American Haggadah.

Obama's Smart Red Lines on Iran

Instead of political pandering and promoting a reckless policy, Obama is making it clear that while he seeks to resolve the challenge from Iran, he also has policy red lines that should not be crossed.

Nakba Is in the Eyes of the Beholder

David Suissa | Posted 07.18.2011 | World
David Suissa

Perhaps the biggest disaster is the inability of the Arab world to see the Jewish state as anything but a cursed presence. Call me a cynic, but I don't think peace has a chance when Arabs still see the birth of Israel as a Nakba.
