The Corner

The one and only.

Israel and the ISG


Robert Novak wants America to intervene more forcefully abroad: “The Baker-Hamilton report and Hagel’s speech each reiterated the truth that there is no chance whatsoever for essential Israeli-Palestinian peace without American brokerage. The Israeli ruling class and its U.S. outriders do not want that to happen, which explains the bitter opposition to the commission’s recommendations. It would be an act of courage for George W. Bush to risk an assault from these forces, and it is a central decision of his last two years.”

There’s a mistake in there. “Outriders?” The phrase is “amen corner.”
