Recent protests and irate parliamentarians prove that the Israeli Supreme Court ruling on African migrants won't solve the problem all by itself, says Aaron Magid.
Kerry has pressured the E.U. to lift sanctions against Israeli products and institutions originating in West Bank settlements. Although his intentions are good, his strategy is not, explains Aaron Magid.
Whatever his critics say, President Obama had little choice but to seek the approval of Congress before authorizing intervention in Syria, explains Aaron Magid.
Can Netanyahu successfully shepherd his fractious coalition through the minefield of peace negotiations? Aaron Magid breaks down the numbers.
