On March 9, President Obama signed an Executive Order clearing the way to lift Bush-era restrictions on the use of federal funds in embryonic stem cell research. The move was widely seen as part of his Inaugural Address promise to “restore science to its rightful place.” But what is science’s “rightful place”? Does Obama himself know?
If President Obama is to make any progress achieving a durable peace in the Middle East, he needs to understand a central truth of the conflict: The Hamas-Fatah civil war has arguably damaged the Palestinian people much more than it has their sworn enemy, the Israelis. Jonathan Schanzer’s new book, Hamas vs. Fatah, should be Obama’s primer.
