Lessons from Israel's Elections

March 26, 2015  •  The Huffington Post

No matter how one feels about the results of the Israeli elections, one thing is clear: U.S.-Israeli relations are veering towards a head-on collision over the issues of Iran's nuclear program and the Palestinian-Israeli peace process. They were likely a major factor behind Israel's high voter turn out that stood at 71.8 percent -- the highest participation rate since 1999 when Labor's Ehud Barak defeated Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu after his first term as prime minister.

From the President, to politicians, to professional pundits, Benjamin Netanyahu's critics were quick to pounce after he delivered his speech to Congress. In defending their negotiating position with Iran, high-ranking Obama administration officials have employed variations of the line, "no deal is better than a bad deal" dozens of times but they still refuse to make their case based on the merits of their plan. Instead, they've admonished the deal's critics with straw man arguments. A look at their circular logic reveals that what they actually mean is that any deal is better than no deal.
