Italy’s Strange Choice to Hide Its Art

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — Anyone receiving a special visitor understands the desire to be a gracious host. But there's no point in beating around the bush here: Italian officials have gone to an absurd length in kowtowing to President Hassan Rouhani of Iran on his first visit since the lifting of economic sanctions as a result of the nuclear deal.

Statue Honoring ‘Comfort Women’ Faces Uncertain Fate

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — Since 2011, a haunting bronze sculpture of a young woman in traditional Korean dress has been positioned on a sidewalk near the Japanese embassy in Seoul. Barefoot, her hands clenched in her lap, she sits in a chair and stares impassively, a symbol of thousands of Korean women who were used as sex slaves by Japan's army from the early 1930s until 1945.

What the Saudis Miss When They Focus on Iran

nytimes.com — RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - It doesn't take long in Saudi Arabia to see evidence of an obsession with Iran, the Shiite foil to this Sunni country. In recent conversations, government officials, analysts and members of the royal family were quick to describe how incensed they were that President Obama hadn't found a way to remove Bashar al-Assad, the Syrian president and Iran's close ally, from power.

In Saudi Arabia, Where Women’s Suffrage Is a New Idea

nytimes.com — RIYADH, Saudi Arabia - In December, women in Saudi Arabia will run for public office and vote for the first time. In theory, that should count as an advance for female empowerment in this ultraconservative country, but the reality is more ambiguous.

The Truth About the Benghazi Investigation

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — It has long appeared that the Republican obsession with investigating the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya was not a genuine attempt to get the facts behind a tragic incident in which four Americans, including the United States ambassador, lost their lives but a partisan witch hunt targeting Hillary Rodham Clinton, the frontrunner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination.

Remembering a Force for Transformation in Hartford

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — A call came out of the blue this week from a man I haven't spoken to in 30 years. After the pleasantries, Dick Suisman delivered the sad news: Nick Carbone, the legendary politician from Hartford, Conn., had died of leukemia at the age of 78.

Why the Pope’s Spanish Speeches Matter

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — Now comes the news that Pope Francis, making his first visit to the United States later this month, intends to deliver 14 of his 18 speeches in Spanish. Doesn't he realize we speak American here? What will Donald Trump, the Republican presidential frontrunner; Sarah Palin, a G.O.P.

The 2016 China-Bashing Race

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — When it comes to foreign policy, American presidential candidates have often found it easy, even beneficial, to criticize China. In recent decades, China's growing economic, military and political clout has generated concern among many voters in this country. Frankly, there has been plenty to criticize, including Beijing's reprehensible treatment of its own citizens.

Showing Courage on Iran

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — Intense lobbying and heated (often demagogic and hateful) rhetoric has made deciding whether to support the Iran nuclear deal an excruciating process for many members of Congress. None have come under more pressure and scrutiny than Jewish-American lawmakers. And among those, Representative Jerrold Nadler stands out.

Robert Menendez Offers Unrealistic Plan for Iran

takingnote.blogs.nytimes.com — It was disappointing, although not unexpected, that Senator Robert Menendez of New Jersey, the senior Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has declared his opposition to the Iran nuclear deal. He has been skeptical, bordering on hostile, from the start.
