NARRATIVE DISSONANCE: Martin Peretz on Obama’s Cairo speech. “I suppose that President Obama thinks that in Cairo he bridged many narratives. He certainly appeared to try.”

Plus, Francis Cianfrocca on Martin Peretz: “It’s a great piece as far as it goes, but Peretz evidently ran out of time to connect the dots (or perhaps given his audience, he felt he didn’t need to). One of the very earliest reactions I heard from Jewish people to The Speech was that it ignored thousands of years of history, to say nothing of how the Zionists brought forth green life from rough desert that the Palestinians never managed to do anything with.”

UPDATE: “Who did you vote for, Marty?”
