At the opening session of the 10th annual Saban Forum, Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman criticized the interim nuclear deal with Iran but appealed for discretion in managing the bilateral frictions between the United States and Israel that have become apparent over the diplomacy. Lieberman, head of the right-wing Yisrael Beytenu party, described the Iranian interim nuclear deal as "unacceptable to me and the Israelis." However, he repeatedly underscored that while "it’s impossible to conceal the disagreements between us and the Americans on this deal...it’s unnecessary to discuss those disagreements publicly."

What Do Today’s Jobs Numbers Tell Us? (Hint: It’s Not What You Think.)

Friday’s jobs numbers provide a reminder of the continued challenges facing Americans seeking work in today’s bi-polar recovery. While the Dow hit an all-time high last month, over 10 million Americans remain out of work – and 37 percent of them have been looking for a job for six or more months.
