Obama, Abbas, Netanyahu: Much ado about nothing

There are a number of more or less mythical narratives floating around about the Middle East today, and these have become rallying points for various groups who advocate this or that position.

Book Review: Benny Morris, One State, Two States

Benny Morris

The Obama administration is pressing for a "Two State solution" and the Arab states are at least saying they are committed to such a solution. At the same time, there were two conferences dedicated to a "One state solution" or alternative to the "two state solution. One conference was held by right wing Zionists, and one by anti-Zionists, each pushing "solutions" that will basically obliterate the other side.

Israel. USA and the peace initiative: So dumb it has to be smart?

Iranians insist that Mahmoud Ahmadinejad may be Israel's greatest asset, as his antics served to alienate and isolate Iran from the rest of the world. The same, in reverse, may be said for Israel's foreign minister Avigdor Lieberman, and the Israeli government he represents. Lieberman and the government have done just about everything possible to isolate Israel and to make it impossible for Israel to make even the most obvious points in favor of the urgency of dealing with the Iranian threat and the problematic nature of peace negotiations. It got so bad that Arab commentators must spell out the problems for US and explain the dangers of the US policy toward Iran. [more]
