US-Israel disputeMedia Matters has provided a helpful Fact Check post on the current US-Israel dispute: Myths And Facts On U.S.-Israel Diplomatic Row 03/15/10.
At LobeLog Foreign Policy, Jim Lobe has the news and commentary on Petraeus Confirms Link Between Israel-Palestine and U.S. Security 03/16/10:
In any event, Petraeus’ willingness to publicly — and in uniform with all those decorations on his chest — make the connection between Israeli treatment of the Palestinians and the spread of “anti-American sentiment” and the deterioration of the U.S. position in the region — a connection which, of course, is completely evident to any casual observer of Middle East — marks what can only be considered a major breakthrough in the debate over the relationship between the United States and Israel.The indispensable Helena Cobban writes On the current tipping point Just World News 03/16/10. She also thinks that this incident has provided a surprising but long-overdue broadening of the public conversation about US foreign policy towards Israel. Helena also makes an important point about the 1992 election. (But she seems to have missed the J Street e-mail that did go out before the date of her post.)
