Just when J Street’s reason-for-being, a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, fell into a deep coma, the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations... read full article

  • Paralyzing narratives: Why peace keeps failing

    By David Suissa

    May 7, 2014 | 11:44 am

    We're so used to seeing the Israeli-Palestinian peace process fail that we often overlook this simple question: How is it possible that so many can try so hard for so long and still fail to make any progress? How can it be that the United States, the most powerful country on Earth,...

    [UPDATE, May 2] My conversation with Donald Sterling


    My head is spinning from watching the horror show of Donald Sterling’s racist rants and his subsequent lifetime banishment from basketball. In case you’ve been on Mars the past week, Sterling is the billionaire owner of the Los...

    I confess that I’ve felt a little guilty luxuriating in a Mexican resort during this Passover holiday instead of finding ways to connect with the long and painful journey of my ancestors. But I did spend the first part of the holiday in freezing Montreal, so maybe that compensates...

    I feel bad for President Barack Obama. Here is a decent, intelligent, articulate man who had all the qualities to be a brilliant candidate but somehow ended up in the wrong job.

    As I see him running out the clock on his second term, gamely trying to appear in control but clearly...

  • Tribal and human

    I was born and raised a tribal Jew, which basically means putting your “Jewish family” first. In the Jewish ghetto of Casablanca where I grew up, you didn’t hear words like “social justice” or “tikkun olam.” There were no Jewish protests for the rights of Arab janitors, or Jewish...

  • Why Shavit struck a nerve

    By David Suissa

    It's rare to see a passionate critic of Israel resonate with so many passionate defenders of Israel. And yet, Ari Shavit seems to have pulled that off with his new book, “My Promised Land: The Triumph and Tragedy of Israel.”
