The Change is Becoming Visible in the Obama Era

February 18, 2009

My latest piece at Zeek magazine. You can see it by clicking here. In it, I describe the first visible steps the Obama administration is taking toward breaking with past policies.

The change is visible on many levels, and perhaps most importantly in Congress, where a major pro-Israel figure is stepping up and sharply criticizing settlements and other Israeli practices.

My view counterpoints the cycnicism of much of the hardcore left, which seems determined to believe that Obama will change nothing of substance in his dealings with Israel.

My latest article on Israeli elections for Zeek Magazine can be read at this link. In it, I argue that a Netanyahu-led coalition is actually better for Israel than a Livni-led one.
