President Obama's infamous Obamacare lie that "you can keep your doctor, period" is clearly not the exception — it's the rule. The pattern is especially worrisome with respect to his practice of what amounts to serial national-security fraud.
The ongoing negotiations with Iran are painfully reminiscent of extended British negotiations with Nazi Germany during the late 1930s, involving various concessions in exchange for arms limitations and other promises ("Netanyahu: Iran nuclear pact a 'bad deal,'" Web, Nov. 17). Neville Chamberlain's infamous concession on the "settlement" of the Czechoslovakian Sudetenland question didn't yield the hoped-for "peace in our time." That fateful betrayal of a hapless country only spurred Hitler's war preparations.
President Obama defended his tentative deal with Russia to confiscate Syria's chemical weapons as critics Sunday accused the president of caving to Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
Israeli and Palestinian officials voiced skepticism Sunday that they can move toward a peace deal, as the sides inched toward what may be the first round of significant negotiations in five years.
The State Department said Secretary of State John Kerry briefly boarded his private yacht at the same time of the Egypt's military ouster of President Mohammed Morsi — a drastic switch from denials earlier this week that Mr. Kerry was ever aboard the boat.
The surprising victory of a reformist candidate in Iran's presidential election has put Israel in a difficult position as it tries to halt the Iranian nuclear program: With Hasan Rowhani likely to enjoy an international honeymoon, Israel could have a hard time rallying support for new sanctions — or possible military action — against its archfoe, even as it says the clock is ticking on Tehran's march toward nuclear weapons.
As President Obama wrapped up his three-day visit to Israel Friday, he spent some solemn moments at the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial, relighting the eternal flame there, laying a wreath and vowing to fight anti-Semitism and racism of all kinds.
Tensions between President Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have smoothed and warmed, if body language experts watching the two leaders interact this week are to be believed.
Now that negotiations over Iran's illicit nuclear program have concluded, the Islamic regime is positive the West will start easing sanctions, not because Iran will halt its nuclear activity, but rather owing to a belief that the West has reached the end of its ability to pressure the regime.
Israel's Nobel-laureate president, backed by thousands of followers, is leading an effort to press President Obama during his upcoming visit to free convicted spy Jonathan Pollard, ending one of the most painful episodes between the two allies.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Tuesday added his first coalition partner as he works to build a new government, agreeing to bring in a dovish rival to oversee contacts with the Palestinians in what could signal a new approach to peacemaking by the hard-line leader.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu pledged Sunday to move ahead with construction of a new Jewish settlement in a strategic part of the West Bank, speaking just hours after Israeli forces dragged dozens of Palestinian activists from the area.
Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter said Monday during a visit to Jerusalem that the prospect of an Israel-Palestinian peace accord is "vanishing," blaming Israeli settlement of the West Bank.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu likely will win in the upcoming parliamentary elections, with no serious contenders to replace him, according to opinion polls published by two major Israeli dailies on Thursday.
Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday accused Israel of ethnic cleansing for building settlements in east Jerusalem.
Mr. Netanyahu said Israel hoped the plan would lead to the "complete destruction" of Syria's chemical weapons arsenal and would push the world to stop Iran from nuclear weapons armament.
