Re: Open-Minded Edition (Heather Hurlburt & Hussein Ibish)

I don't see how Ibish's comment that the Palestinian position-- an unnegotiable insistence of a full right of return for millions of Palestinians (also part of the "Arab Peace Initiative) is closer...

Yes, it is quite convenient editing by Andrew Sullivan, except you have to actually read the rest to understand that he is not talking about places like Ramat Shlomo, but about the decision to evict...

Re: A Diavlog Not To Be Trifled With (Robert Wright & Robert Kagan)

If Obama had taken a stand on THAT issue, I would have been right there agreeing with him, but he took a stand on a Jewish neighborhood connected to west Jerusalem--not a process.

Re: A Diavlog Not To Be Trifled With (Robert Wright & Robert Kagan)

Re: Obama's Year in Foreign Policy (Robert Dreyfuss & Rachel Kleinfeld)

Rachel,
To say that Israel has not done anything in response to Obama's request to stop settlements is is simply untrue. Otherwise how can you explain Israel demolishing a Synagogue ...

Re: UN Plaza: Extra Crispy Edition (Matthew Lee & Jacqueline Shire)

"We accepted the idea" "even if that was true"

So he did not accept a proven fact as true. And he took the Palestinian version of casualties as 100% true; as if hundreds of people would gather in...

Re: UN Plaza: Extra Crispy Edition (Matthew Lee & Jacqueline Shire)

The report is a complete and utter farce (http://www.goldstonereport.org/). So many of the "findings" can be easily disproven by any person with an internet connection such as the report saying...

Re: Worldwise: The Inevitable Issue (Helena Cobban & Marina Ottaway)

Likudnik is childishname calling. Just as calling Palestinian supporters "Palistinistas" would be. The suffix -nik is derogotory in Yiddish which is why it is so insulting to many American Jews...

Re: Worldwise: The Inevitable Issue (Helena Cobban & Marina Ottaway)

There is no question that Likud is right of center. I am not trying to argue they are. I do not agree with a lot of what they believe. My point is simply that childish name calling of the right is...

Re: Worldwise: The Inevitable Issue (Helena Cobban & Marina Ottaway)

Anyone in the center would not use the term Likudniks. The term is universally used by only people on the far left as a derogatory term for anyone who disagrees with them. Do you refer to the...

For whatever it is worth. Russia changed its mind and will not reciprocate by removing missles next to Poland.

Re: Nine-eleven plus eight (Robert Wright & Robert Kagan)

International law is only effective when there is a complete acceptance of the law. Otherwise, it is a joke, unless you want the US to go to war with every violator.

Re: Packing Heat (Michelle Goldberg & Megan McArdle)

I don't see how anyone could say this resembles a logical argument. It's pure ad hominem attacks and conclusions with no discussion whatsoever of her arguments.

Re: Still No Solution Forthcoming On Iran... Only Hope

There is no logical reason the US or Israel would want to nuke Iran. Iran, therefore, has no reason to fear Israeli or US nukes, so why would disarmarment make Iran do anything? It defies logic to...

Re: Still No Solution Forthcoming On Iran... Only Hope

Your original post said we should not call Iran a pariah state. You seem to say they are, so we are in agreement. Other states do not have the potential to destabilize as many governments as Iran...

Re: Still No Solution Forthcoming On Iran... Only Hope

Iran has threatened to wipe Israel off the map and even if you think they only meant "the regime," how do you think they plan to do that? With toys?

If you don't think Iran is a pariah state...

Re: The Narrowing Window (Daniel Levy & Brian Katulis)
