An Ugly Double Standard For Israel
By Lawrence J. Haas, U.S. News & World Report, March 24, 2015
 

President Barack Obama's vow to reassess U.S.-Israeli relations after Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's campaign remarks about a Palestinian state showcases his badly skewed views of Israel, its conflict with the Palestinians, its Arab neighbors and the true sources of regional instability. 

 
Netanyahu's Win
By Ilan Berman, World Affairs Journal, March 21, 2015
 

The Israeli electorate has spoken. After a bitterly acrimonious political campaign, and an election on March 17th that saw the highest voter turnout (72.3 percent) in recent memory, Prime Minister Benjamin "Bibi" Netanyahu has received a reinvigorated mandate to govern.

Congress Must Derail Obama’s Iran Debacle
By Ilan Berman, The National Interest, March 18, 2015
 

You wouldn't know it from the mainstream media, but President Obama has an Iran problem. His administration has wagered - and wagered big - on the idea of a nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic. But the effort is increasingly unpopular, and a hard sell among the American electorate. 

 
When The Laws Of War Kill
By James S. Robbins, US News and World Report, March 17, 2015
 

The laws of war are intended to limit conflict and minimize casualties. But what happens when terrorists use these same laws to expand conflict and kill more people? 

 
Morocco's Counterterrorism Moment
By Ilan Berman, Forbes.com, March 11, 2015
 

The summit on countering violent extremism convened by the Obama administration last month was a lavish affair, full of pomp and circumstance and awash in foreign dignitaries. But substantive strategies for combatting radical ideologies, particularly those of Islamist groups, were far less in evidence. 

 
Relax about Republicans' letter to Iran
By James Robbins, USA Today, March 11, 2015
 

A firestorm erupted Tuesday over the letter by Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark. and 46 other Senators to Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khomeini, laying out their view of the ongoing negotiations regarding Iran's nuclear program. Critics of the letter started throwing around words like unprecedented, illegal, even treasonous.

 
Nuclear Musings
By Lawrence J. Haas, U.S. News & World Report, March 10, 2015
 

From today's diary entry of Iran's supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei: 

Ah, the Americans. When it comes to our nuclear weapons program, they leave us with only good choices! 

On the one hand, I can drag out the talks beyond this month's latest deadline because the desperate Americans certainly will agree to keep talking. That's how we went from the six-month interim deal in November 2013, through a deadline in July 2014, and then through another deadline in November 2014. 

 
SYMPOSIUM: How Dangerous Is Vladimir Putin?
By Ilan Berman, The International Economy, March 9, 2015
 

With the likes of the Islamic State's self-declared caliph, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in the running, the competition is stiff indeed. But it would be fair to say that Russian President Vladimir Putin currently ranks as one of the world's most dangerous men.

By Jason Czerwiec, Defense News, March 9, 2015
 

There is an old piece of folk wisdom which, in light of current events, must translate neatly into Russian: "Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me."
