Guest lineup for the Sunday TV news shows:
President Obama is attempting to salvage his flagging Middle East strategy. In his scheduled speech today on the events in the Middle East and North Africa, Mr. Obama may also try to claim a measure of credit for the changes sweeping the region. This will be a tough sell, especially to the supermajorities of people in that part of the world who simply don't like America.
President Obama said Tuesday that it's "more vital than ever" for Israel and the Palestinians to restart peace talks, as he plunged again into Mideast diplomacy with hopes of reaching an elusive accord.
Victims of kidnappings, bombings and sectarian murders, many Iraqi refugees have been deeply traumatized by the violence they and their families have experienced.
This White House, like its predecessors, can take some comfort in the fact that the Middle East has been breaking the hearts of diplomats and foreign politicians for at least 2,000 years. Of course, some centuries have been worse than others. (Pontius Pilate had a particularly difficult inning.) But in modern times, the American voting public has become accustomed to seeing regular news from the Middle East feature wars, terrorism, mayhem, religious fanaticism and failed peace initiatives.
President Obama will "reach out" yet again on Thursday to what he insists on calling "the Muslim world." Think of it as the 2.0 version of his much-ballyhooed but seriously deficient 2009 speech at Al-Azhar University in Cairo.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday declared three days of mourning for 15 people killed in mass marches toward multiple Israeli borders that marked a stunning new tactic in the struggle for Palestinian statehood.
Arab Christians in Sterling Heights, Mich., are trying to separate themselves from a boisterous Muslim community that has served as a punching bag for "terrorism" stereotypes since Sept. 11.
Libyan Ambassador Ibrahim Dabbashi objects to being called a rebel diplomat.
