The Israelis have won

The Israelis have won

 Arafat's Last Threat to Israel?

Arafat's Last Threat to Israel?

The combination of Mr. Bush's stunning new mandate and Mr. Arafat's near-death condition will lead, I predict, to a quick revival of Palestinian-Israeli diplomacy, after months of relative doldrums, and to massive dangers to Israel., 09/11/2004 19:05

 Israel's Wayward Prime Ministers

Israel's Wayward Prime Ministers

Two patterns have shaped Israel's history since 1992 and go far to explain Israel's predicament today. First, every elected prime minister has broken his word on how he would deal with the Arabs. Second, each one of them has adopted a unexpectedly concessionary approach., 30/06/2004 23:32
 Sharon Loses His Way on 'Settlements'

Sharon Loses His Way on 'Settlements'

Israel's Prime Minister Sharon has broken with decades of his own history and declared an intent to withdraw all Israeli habitations from Gaza, plus some from the West Bank. Doing so raises a basic question: Just how important are these "settlements" in the grand scheme of Palestinian-Israeli relations?, 15/02/2004 17:10
 Hezbollah's Victory, Israel's Decline

Hezbollah's Victory, Israel's Decline

In its early decades, Israel's strategic prowess was legendary, transforming a weak country into a regional powerhouse. The past decade has seen the opposite process, whereby that powerhouse reduces itself to a tempting target. That this change is entirely self-induced and achieved through the democratic process makes Benjamin Franklin's prophetic concern all too real., 04/02/2004 17:42

 Christian Zionism: Israel's Best Weapon?

Christian Zionism: Israel's Best Weapon?

One Arabic newspaper, <i>ash-Sharq al-Awsat</i>, captured the general bafflement when it observed that Likud, Israel's more nationalist party, had "lost in Israel but it still rules supreme in Washington." , 18/07/2003 00:06
 "A Shot at Peace"

"A Shot at Peace"

In private conversations with Bush administration officials this past week, I was favorably impressed by their realism about the U.S.-sponsored "road map" plan to stop Palestinian-Israeli violence. But I worry nonetheless that things could go awry. , 11/07/2003 00:26
 U.S. to Israel: Do As We Say...

U.S. to Israel: Do As We Say...

Hypocrisy, bias, and holding Israel to higher standards are all plausible explanations. But two others make more sense. Washington is divided, as Rand Fishbein notes in <i>National Review</i>: as American diplomats chastise Israel for its tactics, U.S. soldiers openly embrace many of those tactics. , 06/07/2003 18:16
