No Military Solution for Iran or Palestine

Before dealing directly with Iran, I believe that the U.S. must put more attention to reaching a comprehensive solution for Iraq.

A Pragmatic Solution - Extend It To Iran

A sign of a more pragmatic foreign policy, and hopefully a prelude to dealing with Iran.

No Business In Iraq, Now or Later

Don't repeat America's first Iraq mistake.

Don't Continue Israel's Status Quo

Mr. President, please don't make the mistake of protecting the Israelis from their own arrogance.

Close Guantanamo Prison

Close Guantanamo as a first step toward restoring America's credibility with the world.

Step Up Your Mideast Game, America

If the U.S. wants to be a referee between Israel and Palestine, it needs to step up its game.

Richard Gere Attracts Israelis & Palestinians

Richard Gere came to visit the Middle East a few years ago and attracted more attention than most politicians. He was also careful to say that he was coming to listen, rather than to make statements. Mr. Gere listened to everyone, from Hamas supporters to Jewish settlers, and in turn all sides flocked to see him.

Fund Jobs in Migrants' Homelands

The discussion on immigration (including this question) focuses too much on issues like amnesty and high walls. We need to change the debate to include the need for rich countries to invest in poorer countries, so that people will find jobs at home and not have to risk life and limb to reach the first world.

But How Could They Reelect Bush?

For a long time, most people around the world had two contradictory views about the U.S.: they liked America's people and values, but had serious problems with U.S. foreign policy. Then came 9/11 and the Iraq war, tensions grew, but people could still differentiate public from policy. Until the American people reelected Bush.

Neighbors Won’t Step Up Until U.S. Gone

The situation in Iraq will eventually be resolved by Iraqis, but the presence of Americans will delay any serious attempts at a solution. American occupation remains the strongest argument for armed opposition, as well as the first excuse why other countries in the region don't help Iraq out.

The World Wants a Balance of Power

In comparison to the cards that the United States holds and that this administration is not shy about using, I think the Russians are way behind in wielding power.

Condi and Cheney Not Best Friends Either

Differences clearly exist among the Iranian leadership and within its society. But so do they exist between the White House, the Pentagon, and the State Department in the United States.

Russia Could Check U.S. Power

I am not very informed about the Eastern European issues that made Russia stand up to the U.S. and NATO, but I can safely say that the world with a single superpower has not been that safe. I don't know...

The Leadership Curse

The U.S. has often been blessed with good leaders, but every now and then it gets a bad one.

Do Not Throw Stones at Iran

Amman, Jordan - My favorite proverb at these times is "if your house is made of glass, don't throw stones at your neighbors." This applies to nuclear power in Iran.

Israel is a Liability for U.S.

Ramallah, Palestine/Amman, Jordan - Americans are beginning to realize that their blind support for Israel hurts them far more than it helps.

U.S., Israel, & Moderate Islam Gains

Ramallah, Palestine/Amman, Jordan - Mr. Bush has come closer to earth and Israel's Prime Minister publically offered a Palestinian state, improving the position of both.

President Bush, Admit Your Mistakes

Amman, Jordan/Ramallah, Palestine - Before talking about troop withdrawals, the U.S. must admit it made a mistake in occupying an Arab country without international support.

What Democrats Mean for Palestine

Amman, Jordan/Ramallah - In general, the most important thing for my neighbors is to find a replacement for the present Republican rubber-stamp to the hawkish policies of President Bush. But for Palestinians and Arabs, whether a Democratic Congress can be...

Americans Don't Care About Politics

Amman, Jordan - Americans aren't obsessed with politics. They should be, especially international politics.
