No, America’s Iran Policy Isn’t Beholden to Israel

My recent piece for The National Interest is a rebuttal of some of the main arguments made in that article.

Iran in 2014

I feel that I am not being a good Jew. That I am not keeping up with my people’s traditions. Why? because tomorrow is Christmas day and I don’t know a good Chinese restaurant to eat at. Oy vey! 🙂

I hope my latest article makes up for it.
In 2014, to foresee Iran’s behavior at the nuclear negotiations, we must look at domestic politics.

On Iran, Israel Can Trust Obama

While we in the West obsess over Israel’s red line vs America’s red line for Iran’s nuclear program, there are two other red lines which are extremely important but are not being discussed.

They are Iran’s red lines.

Obama has proved himself to be the master of manipulating Iran’s red lines to our advantage, which is one reason among others why we in Israel can trust him.
