     Review: 'Zaytoun's' light tone misses a serious point
    It might be asking a lot for a mainstream odd-couple road-trip movie to bear the dramatic heft of the heavy Israeli-Arab conflict, specifically the 1982 war with Lebanon, but "Zaytoun" — Arabic for "olive" — travels light, with an optimistic...

     'Out in the Dark' director brings Palestinian-Israeli affair to light
    After completing his military service in Israel, Michael Mayer left his homeland in 1995 to attend film school at USC. After graduating, he made some short films and executive-produced a 2008 documentary, "Driving Men," that made the rounds of festivals....
  • Review: Love finds its way in the powerful 'Out in the Dark'

    Review: Love finds its way in the powerful 'Out in the Dark'
    "Love finds its way" is an Arabic proverb that deftly finds its way — literally and figuratively — into the taut, compelling drama "Out in the Dark," which places a gay-themed romance at the center of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian discord....
  • Iran at UN: Missteps and advances on the road to a nuclear deal

    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani's debut on the world stage this week got mixed reviews on both sides of the Atlantic but succeeded in bringing U.S. and Iranian officials together on the issue that most bitterly divides them: Tehran's nuclear ambitions....
  • Groundhog Day: Middle East version

    In the film "Groundhog Day," Bill Murray wakes up each morning and relives the previous day. A similar scenario is playing out in the Middle East between Israel and her enemies. The deadly "movie" always goes like this: Israel is shelled or attacked by...
  • 'Pharaoh' Morsi

    The diplomatic hosannas for Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi following his brokering of the recent ceasefire between Hamas and Israel were still being heard even as the former head of the Muslim Brotherhood started behaving like a pharaoh. Morsi...
  • Flight of fancy

    President Obama should listen to former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, the "founder" of shuttle diplomacy. Kissinger told Bloomberg TV's Judy Woodruff recently that he sees little hope in the "Arab Spring," nor is he optimistic about peace in the...
  • Islamists not ready for democracy

    The military coup that ousted Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi marks another failure in U.S. foreign policy over several administrations, which have erroneously promoted the notion that American-style democracy in Islamic lands will produce a nation...
  • Meaningless concessions

    Egypt is in turmoil again. Syria is embroiled in civil war. Iran continues building a nuclear device. Militants in Iraq have killed more than 4,000 people so far this year, more than 800 of them in July alone, according to the aptly named Iraq Body...
  • The enduring legacy of Anne Frank

    AMSTERDAM -- On the day I visit the Anne Frank House, which is actually the family's hiding place atop Anne's father's business, the wait to get in is as long as three hours. Such is the attraction of this historic site, 53 years after it was opened to...
  • Then what in Syria?

    Two recent newspaper editorials illustrate the double-mindedness some feel about President Obama's decision to provide small arms and ammunition to Syrian rebels. The Washington Post headlined an editorial: "No time for half-measures: Syria's rebels need...
  • The president's U.N. speech

    President Obama's speech to the United Nations General Assembly in New York was flawed, displaying a type of moral equivalency that does not exist for America's enemies. His claim that "The world is more stable than it was five years ago" is demonstrably...
