Hagel and Israel

Despite the claims of his detractors, former senator Chuck Hagel is neither anti-Israel nor anti-Semitic, writes Alon Pinkas in Al-Monitor

...many of these same critics are those who consider Obama as fundamentally anti-Israel. They believe that since his reelection Obama is thinking about nothing else but how to exact revenge against Prime Minister Netanyahu's alleged support for Romney and crude and myopic meddling in the US elections. So if Obama proceeds to nominate Hagel, the case against the President will be validated and the anti-Obama crowd will feel vindicated.

 

Iran's Conservatives Push for a Deal

Writing in the National Interest, Ray Takeyh claims that there are new calls by several Iranian hardliners for compromise on the nuclear issue. 

The notions of talks with the United States and compromise solutions are not new in Iran, but had previously been embraced by largely inconsequential actors such as President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and his two predecessors, Hashemi Rafsanjani and Muhammad Khatami. In recent days, however, that chorus has been gingerly joined by some hardliners.
