Taking Israel to Task

In my latest piece for Souciant, I deal with the question of why three key Obama officials, all of whom are keenly aware of American Jewish politics, chose this time to make controversial statements regarding Israel and its conflicts. There just might be a small dot of hope there.

Also, in a similar vein, POLITICO journalist Ben Smith has an excellent piece on some of my colleagues at the Center for American Progress and Media Matters and the effect they are starting to have on the Democratic Party.
