Raffi Wineburg

The separation myth: If a two-state solution is ever reached, it will be through openness and integration between Israelis and Palestinians, not segregation, writes Gershom Gorenberg. (National Journal)

Diplomatic delusions: U.S. diplomacy has utterly failed in brokering peace between Israel and the Palestinians, so why does the U.S. still see itself as a necessary third party, asks Nathan Thrall.  (N.Y. Review of Books)

Tasting Hitler’s food: The Nazi leader drafted 15 personal food tasters to ensure his meals weren’t poisoned. Years later, a surviving taster shares the terror of knowing every bite could have been her last. (The Daily Star)
