How Obama Should Deal With Bullies

They know when you’re bluffing, and only back down when they’re convinced you mean business.

Editor And Publisher

President Obama is getting beat up pretty bad lately — from the likes of Russian President Vladimir Putin, Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and Syrian President Bashar Assad, who are testing his foreign policy moxie.

Russia's Putin To Visit Israel


Vladimir Putin, the president-elect of Russia, intends to visit Israel this summer.

The date has yet to be formally announced, the Israeli media reported, but will come after Putin's May 7 inauguration.

Putin reportedly is interested in unveiling a monument in Netanya to Jewish Red Army soldiers who fought in World War II, Haaretz reported, citing a senior Israeli official.

A Putin visit last year was canceled due to a strike by Israeli Foreign Ministry employees.
