Presidential press secretary Jay Carney uttered 10 words the other day that represent a major presidential challenge to the American Israel lobby and its friends on Capitol Hill. Referring to Senate legislation designed to force President Obama to expand economic sanctions on Iran under conditions the president opposes, Mr. Carney said: "If it were to pass, the president would veto it."

Rouhani is driven by the same hateful ideology
The Obama administration responded with caution Tuesday to a new Iranian offer to scale back — but not eliminate — its uranium enrichment program and allow increased international monitoring in exchange for the lifting of U.S.-led sanctions that have damaged the Islamic republic's economy and oil industry in recent years.
President Obama's "hat-in-hand" approach to Iran's new president, Hasan Rouhani, over Iran's nuclear-weapons program is not only degrading for America, but also for the office of the President of the United States. This comes on the heels of Mr. Obama being outmaneuvered by Russian President Vladimir Putin over Syria's chemical weapons, which clearly has weakened Mr. Obama's international image. However, our narcissistic president apparently is incapable of accepting that fact, as he was then rebuffed in a lunch that Mr. Rouhani refused to attend.
The threat of annihilation adds an edge to his warnings about Iran
The president doesn't recognize the aroma of snake oil
Samuel Johnson's celebrated observation that nothing concentrates the mind like the prospect of hanging applies to nations, too. Benjamin Netanyahu reminded the delegates to the United Nations this week that Israel, surrounded by threats to its survival, pays close attention to both enemies and friends, particularly to friends of suspect reliability in the clutch.
Hasan Rouhani, Iran's new president, made his debut on the world stage at the U.N. General Assembly on Tuesday, calling for "a framework for managing our differences." He didn't offer the olive branch President Obama wanted. If Tehran is genuinely interested in improving relations with the United States and the West, Mr. Rouhani and the ruling mullahs could prove it with a small gesture. He could free a Christian pastor who on Thursday marks his first anniversary as a political prisoner in Tehran's notoriously evil Evin Prison.

U.S. must not forget Iran's unrelenting war on terror
President Obama used his annual address to the United Nations on Tuesday to say he sees an opening for diplomacy with Iran and would pursue a deal to stop the Islamic republic's pursuit of nuclear weapons — but his words were soon overshadowed by the handshake that wasn't.
The circus comes to town Tuesday, and the music from the Big Top, adorned with pretty flags and colorful banners, wafts across Manhattan's Turtle Bay neighborhood. The main attraction is the prospect of a meeting between President Obama and Hasan Rouhani, the new president of Iran. The credulous world pants in anticipation of a deal over Iran's rogue nuclear program, but expectations always crash in disappointment at the United Nations.
The U.N. General Assembly's 68th session will open its annual "general debate" in New York on Tuesday, with leadoff speakers including President Obama and Iranian President Hasan Rouhani. There is every prospect that Mr. Obama and Mr. Rouhani will exchange the handshake Mr. Obama has longed for ever since his 2009 inaugural address.

Mr. Rouhani promised during the Iranian elections that he would work to ease sanctions against Iran within the first 100 days of his term.
Speaking to Iranian state TV a month before the election, Mr. Rouhani said only "the illiterate" would believe the "lie" that the Iranian nuclear program had been suspended on his watch.
