Netanyahu is calling Obama's bluff

There is a new theme developing in U.S.-Israeli relations and while not a new one it is the first time U.S. officials have talked about it so openly: Israeli and U.S. interests in the Middle East are not identical. So far these words have not passed the lips of Obama or Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and have only been uttered by military brass. Whether the brass would have the jam to make these statements to pressure Obama on his Mid East policy or they are simply playing their role in an Obama strategy is unclear.

Is criticism of Iran a form of anti-Iranianism?

Happy April Fool's Day to our rabble-rousing readers! The following is a short parody about the Canadian Parliamentary Coalition to Combat Anti-Semitism (CPCCA). Their deliberations are based on the premise that criticism of Israel is anti-semitic. The author of this piece, Terry Greenberg, takes a look at an original quote below by writer Thomas Friedman, which was cited by MP Irwin Cotler as the basis of the CPCCA.
