“Israelis See Netanyahu Trip as Diplomatic Failure,” says the headline on this New York Times dispatch. It’s based entirely on quoting left-leaning commentators; in a couple cases they characterize them as “centrist,” but in the Israeli context (where the left-wing parties, largely discredited by events, have mostly whithered) this means supporters of Kadima, the leading opposition party against Netanyahu’s center-right coalition.
Cut to Haaretz (a left-leaning paper which runs some very left-wing columnists), where you’ll find this headline: “Haaretz poll: Netanyahu’s popularity soaring following Washington trip.” The story’s deck notes that “the public seems to be turning a deaf ear to analysts who criticized Netanyahu’s address to Congress.”
Perhaps the Times shouldn’t pretend that said analysts speak for all Israelis.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
