Give Kerry a break for his efforts at an Israel-Gaza cease-fire 1.8.2014 Washington Post: Op-Eds
Secretary of State John Kerry was right to push this week for an immediate cease-fire in Gaza. All outside parties should do everything they can to end a war in which both Israel and Hamas have seemed willing to fight to the death of the last Palestinian civilian. Perhaps a path out of the madness can be found during the 72-hour humanitarian cease-fire set to begin early Friday ...

Clueless in Gaza 1.8.2014 Washington Post: Op-Eds
John Kerry is upset by heavy criticism from Israelis — left, right and center — of his recent cease-fire diplomacy. But that’s only half the story.

Fighting in Libya threatens Western efforts to help its democracy 31.7.2014 Washington Post

Three years after Western powers helped Libyan rebels overthrow dictator Moammar Gaddafi, they have at least temporarily abandoned efforts on the ground to bolster Libya’s foundering democracy.

On Wednesday, France evacuated its embassy in Tripoli, where warring militias have traded rocket and artillery fire over the past two weeks in the worst violence in the capital since Gaddafi’s ouster.
