  • From Hamas to Shin Bet agent: Mosab Hassan Yousef

    By Tom Tugend

    September 3, 2014 | 1:20 pm

    Few human relationships are as complex and intriguing as one between an intelligence agent and a potential informer, with the Middle East as an ideal proving ground for this thesis, at least cinematically.

  • The virtues of isolation

    September 3, 2014 | 9:11 am

  • Where is Obama on Hamas?

    By David Suissa

    September 2, 2014 | 4:42 pm

    I can understand why President Barack Obama would be reluctant to blindly support Israel at times when Israel’s neighbors have major grievances against the Jewish state. It serves no one’s interest for America to appear overly biased toward Israel. Better to appear fair and...

  • Hamas popularity surges as Palestinian rivalry flares

    September 2, 2014 | 10:19 am

  • End of Gaza war doesn’t translate into peace

    September 2, 2014 | 10:00 am

    A week after the guns fell silent in the Gaza war, Israel and the Palestinians seem to have little appetite or incentive for a return to U.S.-sponsored peace and statehood talks that collapsed five months ago.

    September 1, 2014 | 8:41 am

    How can I sum up this crazy summer?


    In the past eight weeks I have been through an emotional roller coaster. I’ve been up and down, high and low, frustrated and hopeful, but most of all – surprised, because of so many things…

  • Why didn’t Gazans use the IDF field hospital?

    By Simone Wilson

    August 27, 2014 | 10:31 am

    For those few Gaza hospitals not bombed or evacuated during the Gaza war, the influx of wounded and dead made for a hellish 24/7 chaos in their halls, as well as growing refugee camps on their perimeters. At the height of fighting in late July and early August, doctors and...

    By Shmuel Rosner

    August 27, 2014 | 4:07 am

    Israelis - if you'd like to summarize how they feel this morning in just two words - are relieved and bitter, not necessarily in that order. They are relieved for a good reason: the cease-fire that was agreed upon and announced yesterday seems more serious and, hopefully, more...

  • Is Israel’s longest, bloodiest Gaza war over?

    August 26, 2014 | 3:17 pm

    A rocket barrage fell on Israel, a boom sounded over Tel Aviv and then it was over — at least for now.

    By David Suissa

    One of the crazy things about following the Middle East is trying to keep track of all the bad guys. Remember when Iran was the big bad Islamic wolf? Or al-Qaida? Or Hezbollah? Or the Muslim Brotherhood? Or Hamas?

    Now, as if in a flash, along comes ISIS to become the evil flavor...

    By Shmuel Rosner

    August 25, 2014 | 4:04 am

    As the latest cease-fire settles in at press time on Aug. 26, the question remains: What do we call a round of fighting that is 50 days long and counting?

  • The news summer from hell and the end of optimism

    By Marty Kaplan

    August 25, 2014 | 12:20 am

    By this point in the summer, a sane person could reasonably conclude that the world is going nuts.  Spiraling out of control, descending into darkness, making optimism a delusional last recourse – that kind of feeling.
