  • Rachel Patron: Bomb is already there, but what should we do?

  • The Middle East mess isn't about Israeli settlements

    In an interview with Charles Gati in Politico Magazine, Zbigniew Brzezinski, who served as national security adviser to Jimmy Carter, proves once again that he is a man of profound religious faith. He worships at the Church of Linkage, which holds that...
  • John Kerry's high-wire diplomacy

    Has John F. Kerry turned into the unexpected star of President Obama's second term? He was Obama's second choice as secretary of State (after Susan Rice). He's the same windy, stiff Bostonian who ran unsuccessfully for president a decade ago. And he's...

    PARIS -- Mitt Romney's selection of Paul Ryan as his running mate for the American presidency confirms that this campaign is going to be mainly about domestic issues -- barring a not-impossible Israeli attack on Iran between here and there. It is likely...
  • US weighs Syrian intervention, despite the consequences

    PARIS -- The present debate in the United States over making policy for a Middle East that has been profoundly changed by the events of the past three years unhappily echoes past policies that failed. They were intended to promote democracy and usually...
  • Courage, the child of hope

    Luke 24:21:  "But we hoped that it had been he who should have redeemed Israel."  Two disciples related this to a stranger who joined them on the road to Emmaus, three days after Jesus' crucifixion.  They spoke of "hope" in the past-tense. Further...
  • It's a tough time for Jews

    In a season in which there is very little "peace on Earth" and even less "good will towards men," it is a particularly tough time for Jews, who may be finding it more and more difficult to tell who their real friends are. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta...
  • And there also came Nicodemus

    The story of Nicodemus in the Bible has been told over and over again. Today it's being told  again through the lives of men and women who simply refuse to take a stand on important issues. Rather, they just let the chips fall where they will. The...
