I am sharing an article entitled, “Reading the Obama Interview,” by Alexander H. Joffe, The Times of Israel, March 3, 2014. I received the article via a post on the Middle East Forum. The Joffe article does a thorough job of analyzing President Obama’s interview with Jeff Goldberg of Bloomview.org (3/2/2014) and reading between the lines of Obama’s always-veiled words. In last night’s post on this blog, I looked at the specific issue of the impact of Israel’s building of settlements on occupied areas in Palestinian Territories and how this issue is impacting Israel’s increasing isolation in the world. The Joffe article looks specifically at the words of Obama and what they really mean, particularly in light of the Obama Administration’s strained relationship with its long-time ally.
Here are three posts for additional reading. The second post is the one from last night:
Jesus come quickly.
