PJM Covers the Middle East - Obama, Israel and Iran

Bragging rights: I’m proud of Pajamas Media this morning. If you haven’t seen it, we had a great story by Ardeshir Arian yesterday from inside Iran (with video). The mainstreammedia is of course missing or ignoring this entirely.

This morning, we have, via our perspicacious Tel Aviv editor Allison Kaplan Sommer, the first translation of Barack Obama’s interview with Israel’s leading daily Yediot Aharonot. Obama has clearly woken up to the fact that Jews are a major Democratic Party constituency – and he is in danger of losing them. This could be fatal, especially in the general election.
