When American Ambassadors Were Still Untouchable

American diplomatic staff were once the safest people in the world, representatives of a superpower who would rain hell from the skies should you touch one of their diplomatic staff. But no more. May 16, 2013 11:14 PM PT

The Danger of Treating North Korea Like a Farce

...the fact remains that Kim Jong Un continues to be caricatured by the press and not taken seriously enough. On April 7th, Saturday Night Live (“SNL”) opened with a fake press conference where Kim Jong Un brags about his sexual prowess and fist pumps Dennis Rodman towards the end of his address. While this is typical SNL fare, it is emblematic of the world’s failure to truly fathom the grave threat represented by maniacal figures like Un. May 2, 2013 10:27 PM PT

Adelson: From Caricature to Real Life

Those of us who know Sheldon have always been amazed at how he is depicted by some in the media as a mean-spirited, heartless mogul pulling political strings and throwing his weight in campaigns in order to elect lawmakers who favor lower taxes. That fraudulent caricature overlooks the true essence of a man who is one of the world’s most generous benefactors of charitable causes and one of the foremost Jewish philanthropists of all time.

AIPAC’s Silence on Chuck Hagel

Anyone who watched Chuck Hagel’s lamentable performance before the Senate Armed Services Committee last week had to conclude that the man is inadequate at best and woeful at worst as the choice for the next Secretary of Defense. Feb 4, 2013 5:21 PM PT

Why Bibi Is Not Intimidated by Obama

I’m sure Jeffrey Goldberg got it right. Whatever the reason the President leaked his unhappiness with Bibi to Goldberg just a few days before the Israeli election--whether in an effort to influence the vote against Bibi, serve payback to Bibi for a perceived preference for Romney, or because the President could simply no longer suppress his dissatisfaction--it must indeed be unnerving to be the most powerful man on earth and have the elected leader of a tiny Middle Eastern country defy you. Especially when that country, in your opinion, owes you so much! Jan 21, 2013 11:35 AM PT

Chuck Hagel's Anti-Gay Stance Deserves Scrutiny

This painful story came to mind when I read of former Senator Chuck Hagel’s radical opposition, in 1998, to James Hormel, President Bill Clinton’s choice to be ambassador to Luxembourg, on the grounds that Hormel was “openly, aggressively gay.” Here was a United States senator abusing his power and refusing to allow a nomination for an Ambassadorship to go ahead simply because the man was gay. And yes, I am well aware of the fact that Hagel has not apologized, albeit 13 years later, when political expediency would demand it. Jan 9, 2013 2:20 PM PT

Patriotic Necessity Leads to American Invention

For a time, I celebrated the Fourth of July more out of habit than deep conviction. That changed for me when I lived in Britain for eleven years as Rabbi to the students of Oxford. I came to realize that what made America special is its eternal optimism and rugged individualism. Jul 4, 2012 7:40 AM PT
