Samantha Power, the U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, told an audience at the Center for American Progress in Washington Friday that there is “no risk-free door #2” in regard to Syria.
In confab over ‘Jewish democracy,’ Goldberg says the U.S. has plenty of ‘schmucks’ and ‘fascists’ too
Haaretz columnist Ari Shavit went on an extreme riff about the Arab Spring at a historic synagogue in Washington the other night — then stated that he spoke not as an Israeli Jewish Zionist but as a human being. Do you believe him? Peter Voskamp reports
Peter Voskamp reports from Obama’s speech yesterday: Medea Benjamin’s tactics during Obama’s drone speech yesterday provided a riveting exchange, with Obama saying, “That woman is worth paying attention to.” And the exchange could not have come at a better time on a more crucial set of issues: a president’s power to kill or indefinitely detain without due process. As it happened, Obama’s chief of staff was sitting directly behind me inside the National Defense University, and I couldn’t help but catch some of his reaction. Not only did he seem unfazed, he even wondered aloud if he should call off the encroaching security guards.

The unexpected French success of “Indignez vous!” (or “Cry Out”), the 30-page call to non-violent arms by 93-year-old Stephane Hessel — former member of the French Resistance, concentration camp survivor and diplomat — has been met with mild wonder. After … Continue reading
One morning not long ago our tiny apartment began to shudder as if an earthquake were descending from above. My 14-month-old daughter scurried about, frightened and confused. Mom and dad looked on helplessly as the noise rattled our innards. It … Continue reading
I wonder if this is an Aquino moment for Israel. In 1983, Filipino strongman Ferdinand Marcos ordered opposition leader Nino Aquino dragged from the plane and executed upon his return from exile. It was illustrative of how Marcos, forever coddled … Continue reading

The controversy about Ethan Bronner and his son goes deeper than the New York Times’ coverage of the Middle East. I accept the argument that Bronner’s reporting is likely to be affected by those he lives and works with on … Continue reading
