My MSNBC Commentary on Rashida Tlaib and Israel, and more

My MSNBC Take on Bibi, Rashida, Ilhan, The Donald, and background

Good morning,

I now appear almost every Saturday morning on MSNBC, usually around 6:45 EDT (set your Tivo, Donald Trump). When I am in the States and able to go to 30 Rock, I also appear frequently on David Gura's Sunday show, which runs from 9:00 to 11:00 a.m. And of course there's breaking news commentary. I expect there will be a fair amount to talk about with the G7 coming up in Biarritz at the end of the month.

This was my take on the Trump/Bibi/Rashida Tlaib fiasco:

The Daily Beast ran several excellent, relevant pieces out of Jerusalem and Washington:


Trump and Congress Endanger Israel, Not Omar and Tlaib

PM Netanyahu may bar two members of the House critical of Israel. But a disaster on the horizon was created by Trump and members of Congress who call themselves Israel's friends.




Why Did Netanyahu Flip-Flop on Tlaib and Omar?


Published 08.15.19 
Israel has never before denied entry to Members of Congress. Why did Netanyahu mention a racial supremacist political ally when explaining his decision on Tlaib and Omar?


Democrats Unite After Bibi Blocks Squad Members

Democrats on the Hill and the campaign trail blasted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Trump, while Republicans made themselves scarce.





Israel's Snub of Omar and Tlaib Is a Gift for BDS Movement

Supporters and critics of Israel alike are concerned that raising the profile of BDS will add more fuel to the controversy's fire.
