More Democratic Senators Support Iran Deal Instead of a rush to join the pro-Israel lobby forces in standing with Israel's opposition to the deal, the number of Democratic senators who favor the deal is growing. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) joined Gillibrand, by promising not only to vote in favor of the agreement, but pledging to do "everything in my power to ensure that it stands."

Two States Never an Option for Netanyahu The woman who could be this nation's next president, has promised to work with Israeli-American Haim Saban to further subdue an occupied population. As a senator, Clinton was wrong when she supported the 2003 Bush invasion of Iraq. She is wrong again on BDS.

Jimmy Carter Has Cancer Carter's struggle is not over, which it is why it is far too early for Jimmy Carter to leave this earthly battlefield. The pending freedom of both Israelis and Palestinians from the bondage of conflict, owes a great deal to this man.

House Members In Israel for Obama-Bashing While President Barack Obama was speaking about the people's business, and his Kennedy-like preference for diplomacy over war, freshman members of the U.S. House of Representatives were either 5,000 plus miles away in Israel, or preparing to go there to be feted and educated by a foreign power which opposes the nuclear agreement the U.S. has reached with Iran and major European powers.

Thirteen Senators Who Could Make History There are currently 54 Republican senators, all of whom are on record to oppose the Iranian nuclear deal. The Republicans will need only 13 Democrats to cross party lines and vote against the deal to reach the 67 votes required for an override. To prevent that veto override, President Obama needs 34 Democratic senators to support him; otherwise the deal collapses.

Isaiah 21:6: "Go Set a Watchman" Paired with Ambassador Chas W. Freeman's Sarsota, Florida, lecture, Harper Lee's second novel offers a strong reminder that racism is alive and well in the American political soul. This pairing also reminds us that watchmen like Freeman and writers like Harper Lee, continue to tell those willing to listen, that racism is a danger to us all.

Bishops: Divestment Not in our "Best Interests" The Bishops have said, in effect, to their fellow Christians who favor divestment, "if you had invested in ministry and service inside this prison, you would have some understanding of how we must live under this dictatorship." They dare not say it, else their prison keepers would cut off their water supply, keep their new medical equipment blocked at the border, or simply go hunting for more Palestinian children to shoot.

Emanuel Church Confronts Racial Violence The church and its members did not lash out in fury against racist hatred, which led to the deaths of nine African Americans sitting quietly in a Bible study group. It did what had been its style for the 200 years of its existence. It came together in prayer and a resolve to go forward, surrounded by, and filled with, the miracle of grace. There is a power in that grace, an unexplained mystery.

"What Happens to a Dream Deferred?" Just look at the desperate way in which Israel and its allies are spending big dollars to fight the BDS campaigns. Even Sheldon Adelson has gotten into the act. Palestine's dream of freedom has been deferred far too long. It is time now to "conquer" Israel, not on the battlefield, but in the war that hits Israel where it hurts, in the world of public opinion.

Bibi Coalition Echoes Groucho's "Duck Soup" After his recent narrow election victory Netanyahu turned to a right wing collection of politicians to construct his latest coalition. Haviv Rettig Gur, The Times of Israel's political correspondent, wrote that "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's coalition-building has been "a disaster," even "a farce." He blames it on Netanyahu's strange amalgam of cabinet ministers.

"I'm From that Hell Called Gaza" The injustice in Gaza and the West Bank is, indeed, a curse. It is a curse President Carter knows all too well. He grew up in the segregated state of Georgia, the same state that Martin Luther King, Jr., called home. Dr. King lived and died confronting the curse of segregation in the American South.

Gaza Crisis "Unsustainable and Intolerable" It was evident in statements following their three-day visit to Israel and a part of Palestine, that Jimmy Carter and Gro Harlem Brundtland will continue to use their influence to end Israel's self-imposed world isolation, an isolation damaging both to Israel and Palestine.

Why Was Carter's Gaza Meeting Cancelled? On Wednesday of this week, the Palestinian news agency Ma'an, reported that Carter's previously planned Thursday visit to Gaza was "removed" from his itinerary "without reason." Absent any official explanation, speculation is rampart as to what led to the cancellation, raising the question, why was Carter's Gaza meeting cancelled and what prompted the cancellation?

Carter Going to Gaza for Fatah-Hamas Talks The fact that Benjamin Netanyahu refuses to meet with an ex-U.S. president, and prevents any of Israel's leaders with even a courtesy visit with Carter, is but one more sign of Israeli disdain of any and all, who do not embrace Netanyahu's vision of Israel's exceptionalism. Beginning with his meetings in Gaza Thursday, Carter plows ahead, ignoring Netanyahu's insults.

He is a prophet, a man passionately committed to telling truth not just to power, but to people. The few prophetic voices we have, like Gideon Levy, will continue to remind us of the false prophets who have led us into the darkness.

After Deal Palestine Turns To UN For Statehood So far, the signs of change are slipping away. After the success of the nuclear deal with Iran, a blow to Israel, the U.S. has worked hard to shore up its relationship with Israel. To add to what may be causing a return to the old Obama, the president is facing a vigorous counter-attack against the Iran deal inside Congress, an attack orchestrated by Israel.

Bibi's Israel Remains "Settler Colonialist" State President Barack Obama falls into the catalyst response camp. He was not buying Netanyahu's backward shuffle from his pre-election assertion that there would be no Palestinian state "on his watch" nor was he impressed by Bibi's faux apology for his racist campaign language and tactics.

Bibi Wins with Racism and Revoked Promise Looking ahead at the American political landscape, it appears that after President Obama leaves office, it will not be the politicians who pick up the assignment to make Israel pay a higher price for its occupation. That must fall on activists and individuals outside government who will need to keep the pressure on our politicians, and launch an intensive campaign to raise "the price of occupation."

Bibi and 47 Senators Strike Dark Discordant Note Newly-elected Senator Cotton and neocon leader Bill Kristol are now doing the work of AIPAC, and their pro-Israel, anti-Iran funders, standing with a foreign leader on a foreign policy issue against their own president. In the process they have pulled 47 Republican senators into their scheme. Some of those senators are expressing doubt over their decision to sign a letter they had quickly read and endorsed.

Or will she join the cheering throng that chooses to attend the speech?

At War With Those "Who Have Perverted Islam" It follows, from Giuliani's ill-informed, paranoid, perspective, that the President does not "love America." That is sheer gobbledegook, nonsense designed to deceive. But it plays well to the political right, and it gets extensive attention in right wing media outlets like Fox News, reaching precisely ISIL's target audience

Good Morning America, Bibi is Coming to Town The invitation and Netanyahu's pre-arranged acceptance, is giving a certain grim delight to Netanyahu's opponents in Israel's March 17 election. An Israeli campaign speech to the U.S. Congress two weeks before an election? Not politically smart, which is no doubt the only reason Netanyahu may still cancel.

Obama "Preacher In Chief" at Prayer Breakfast In his Nobel speech, Osborn writes, Obama "offered a moral vision that closely followed, without any direct reference, the ideas of perhaps the most influential American theologian of the twentieth century." Obama has two years remaining in which to make the morally ambiguous decisions a president must make. His 2015 Prayer Breakfast sermon suggests he knows how he wants to handle those decisions.

He will not need to push. Speaker Boehner has already done that for him.

Obama to Senators: Choose U.S. Over Donors Obama said that "as a former senator himself, he understood how outside forces -- like special interests and donors -- can influence senators to act." The president urged the lawmakers to "take the long view rather than make a move for short-term political gain." Seated in front of the podium, Senator Menendez stood up to say he took "personal offense" at the president's remark.

"Something Rotten in the State of Israel" Liberal Zionists are trapped between their loyalty and devotion to Israel and their obvious awareness that Israel's current leadership is driving their nation into what Amos Oz sees as an "isolated ghetto." What they do not want to accept is the reality that after decades as an occupying military force, Israel has already sunk itself into an isolated ghetto.

The Smells of Gaza and New Jersey The "failure," as liberal Zionists and right-wing Zionists alike, do not want to admit, was that the Hamas government defeated an Israel/U.S. trained and financed Fatah army. Unable to gain the control the Palestinian voters in 2006 refused to give them, Israel sealed off its Gaza barbed-wire prison and jailed most of the legislators chosen to run a unified government in Gaza and the West Bank.

"A Taboo on Telling the Truth About Palestine" We are complicit in the creation of the modern Middle East.

U.S. Arms Deal Will Increase Israel's Kill Power As Israel has demonstrated repeatedly, its primary air-to-ground targets since 2007 have been Gaza's Palestinian civilian population, which possesses no aircraft nor iron dome protection of its own. If Israel follows its recent history, we can anticipate a new U.S. president in 2017 will be greeted by a protesting cry from Israel's government leaders, "we must once again defend ourselves against attacks from Gaza."

A Circle of Violence: Deir Yassin to Har Nof In its coverage of the Har Nof killings, the Washington Post put "Americans" in its headline, leaving the impression they were tourists. They were not. They were Orthodox rabbis with dual citizenship, American and Israeli. Few media outlets have taken note of the glaring fact that a circle of violence connects Har Nof to Deir Yassin, the Palestinian village destroyed before the formation of the modern state of Israel.

His words of condemnation were more forceful than those he used during the assault. He has two years left to start "doing better." He could start by finding a new Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff with a better understanding of evil.

From Sykes-Picot to "Degrade and Destroy" The current conflict between the U.S. and its allies is a conflict that can only be understood by a look back to the Sykes-Picot Agreement, the 1919 document that allowed Great Britain and France to carve up the Ottoman Empire for their own selfish colonial purposes.

But making the journey at a time of Palestine's choosing should keep Israel from an early return to periodically "mowing the grass," in Gaza, as Israelis have obscenely described these invasions. Only the dumbest politicians keep committing their crimes with a set of indictments hanging over their collective heads.

A Fan Base Lament: "Say it ain't so, Senator" Warren's progressive political base was stunned when she embraced Israel's rationale for its invasion. To a major segment of Warren's political base, an endorsement of Israel's continued immoral and brutal conduct in the invasions and the ongoing occupation, is felt as betrayal of the highest order.

"We want to exchange personal experiences, Sir." An older Jewish generation, survivors, and descendants of survivors from the Holocaust, have raised their voices over Israel's "massacre of Palestinians in Gaza." Does the American media hear these cries of anger and anguish? Do American religious leaders, the secular political leaders, and the American public hear what is happening in Gaza? Clearly they do not, because they all remain silent.
