In a recent debate with Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton bragged about getting the approval of Henry Kissinger: "I was very flattered when Henry Kissinger said I ran the State Department better--better than anybody had run it in a long time," she said. Now it boggles the mind how a candidate claiming she is a progressive can even mention Kissinger as a source of pride.

What the protesters did was shut down all debate and reasonable exchange with some calling for the destruction of Israel which in the context of the meeting made no sense at all.

Netanyahu should not have been hosted and feted in Washington, he should have been called out by policy makers for his behavior. Until that occurs, nothing will change. Palestinians will remain invisible victims, denied their rights, and peace will remain as elusive as ever.

By ending the $3 billion in yearly US aid to Israel and launching an open-ended dialogue regarding other possibilities for peace beyond the failed "peace process," Obama could make a lasting legacy in this tiny corner of the world where too many others have failed.

In an environment where the spirit, the ruach, of the commander is the one calling the shots, the rhetoric is the only thing we can cling on to. It won't move mountains, but it will install a discourse of hope.

Bibi Netanyahu Falsifies History -- Once Again

Benjamin Netanyahu has backed away from his claim that it was a Palestinian leader, rather than Hitler, who came up with the idea of exterminating the Jews. But Netanyahu's historical chutzpah has always been breathtaking, as I learned years ago when reporting on Israel for 60 Minutes.

Netanyahu and his coalition know they're losing the American Jewish community, and they are very aware they're losing the rest of the world as well. The possibility of a UN effort to resolve the conflict has never been greater, nor has the American willingness to pursue it.
