Op-Ed

[The author of the article below is an adjunct professor of history at Touro College, and a regularly featured op-ed columnist at Israel’s Arutz Sheva.

This criticism of Obama fits a persistent Republican critique. Specifically, several other recent presidential candidates used or endorsed the same “bus”

I am writing this column with great reluctance. In a rational world, the accidental death of Rachel Corrie, the pro-Hamas activist who was crushed by a bulldozer in Gaza almost 10 years ago, would no longer have a place in the news cycle. Sadly, we do not live in a rational world, and therefore Corrie’s fate—along with her insidious group of allies that mushroomed following her death—continues to plague us.

Here’s what we know: After much careful deliberation, an Israeli court in Haifa finally

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon—who decided to visit Tehran from Aug. 29-31 for the conference of the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM)—would have been wise to more carefully ponder the lesson provided by Mary Robinson.

During her tenure as UN Commissioner for Human Rights in 2001, Robinson authorized, planned and chaired a disastrous meeting in Iran, and is still paying the price for this fundamental moral failure.

Robinson’s Iranian misadventure took place in the context of the Asian regional
