HEARD LAST NIGHT -- At J Street's gala dinner honoring the group's president Jeremy Ben-Ami, Senator Dick Durbin (D-IL) thanked J Street for working closely with the Obama administration to get 42 Democrats to support the Iran nuclear deal in 2015. "Two years ago, I came to J Street to thank you ...
A Trump Doctrine for the Middle East // Martin Indyk: The region has now been Trump-branded as "a troubled place"--and one America is not particularly interested in helping. Trump's Syria Strategy Actually Makes Sense // Kori Schake: And it does not involve a commitment to change the horrible ... Arabs

The president of the New America Foundation, Anne Marie Slaughter, tweeted that she believes that the United States, the United Kingdom, and France did "the right thing" by striking Syria. The Brookings Institution's Martin Indyk gave President Trump "three cheers" for "enforcing the line against ...
Syria Strikes: When the U.S. military, aided by Britain and France, struck three government targets in Syria on Friday, President Trump declared the three Western nations had "marshaled their righteous power against barbarism and brutality." Yet it's not clear whether the retaliation against this ...
But it's wrong to suggest, as Martin Indyk concludes in The Atlantic, that the Trump administration's Middle East policy is effectively no different from President Obama's "leading from behind." Critics are not giving Trump enough credit: He does have a strategy for Syria and the broader Middle East.

Martin Indyk, the former U.S. special envoy for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, used the prime minister's nickname in labeling his attack on NIF a "Bibiesque/Trump-style deflection." "He was the one to negotiate, sign, announce and then renege on the agreement on asylum-seekers. But it's not his fault. New Israel Fund
During this time, Nader also served as a frequent go-between in informal Syrian-Israeli talks encouraged by the Clinton administration before abruptly disappearing from the Washington scene around 2000. “He was a reliable go-between, a facilitator,” Martin Indyk, who knew Nader when Indyk served as ...

"An international conference would be a non-starter especially since everything you hear about the US peace plan is not necessarily consistent with previous UN resolutions."

Former U.S. Ambassador Martin Indyk emails... “It depends what Friedman means by 'significant evacuation.'

New Israel Fund
And that last statement represented the second 'game changer': In 'good old days', as Martin Indyk called it, it would have been to the US that Israel reflexively would have turned, but not this time. Israel asked President Putin to mediate. It seems that Israel believes that Mr. Putin is now the 'indispensable ... New Israel Fund

Mehdi Hasan: Martin Indyk, your former boss, US Secretary of State John Kerry, has said that the United States can, "serve as the facilitator, the honest broker in an effort to reach a peace deal in the Middle East."

In the early days of his administration, President Barack Obama had a theory about Israel. “It was a wrong theory of the case,” says longtime diplomat Martin Indyk, but a theory nonetheless: If the president could put distance between the United States and Israel, then just maybe he could build up credibility ... New Israel Fund
For a more comprehensive consideration of events in the Middle East, I recommend Martin Indyk's analysis in The Atlantic, in which he posits that the Trump administration is indeed developing its own doctrine -- one that gives America an ever-diminishing role, leaving a potentially dangerous vacuum ... Natalie Portman

Martin Indyk on Pompeo: “Pompeo appears to have the trust of the President and, as CIA Director, managed to win the trust of the nation's spies - no easy task. He is a seasoned politician and has a record of brilliant academic achievement. He is a hard-liner to be sure but not an ideologue. He's well-suited ... Natalie Portman
BRUSSELS — The operatic ouster of Rex Tillerson leaves a State Department angry and adrift, and a world even more confused about the management and direction of American foreign policy, hoping but not expecting that the change leads to greater coherence in Washington. The angst is being felt ... Natalie Portman

Indyk spreads blame to both parties, but his ... Natalie Portman
"The fact that he is the son-in-law of the President gives him a lot of cachet in the region," Martin Indyk said.

Suffice it to mention Dennis Ross, who headed the Middle East peace teams under presidents George H.W.

Natalie Portman
Martin Indyk, a former US ambassador to Israel who tackled peace negotiations during the Clinton and Obama administrations, said Kushner's lost access will make his job "more difficult" but that it's "not a critical setback." "What matters to the actors out in the region more than whether he has the confidence ... Natalie Portman
Former envoys like Dennis Ross, Martin Indyk and others knew this. The borders proposed by the U.S. and Israel will be drawn in blood, as anyone familiar with the Arab-Israeli conflict and its transformations would say. Unlike what Americans and Israelis believe, the conflict will not only be about the ... Natalie Portman
When those talks ended abruptly, Obama accused both sides of lacking the political will to make tough decisions, with the Israeli media focusing on the role of Obama's special envoy Martin Indyk, who reportedly blamed the breakdown mostly on Israel.

Natalie Portman
It is rare for a United States ambassador to challenge his superior, the secretary of state. And it is even rarer for the ambassador to succeed. But that is exactly what David Friedman, the top U.S. diplomat to Israel, did recently. Taking advantage of his close ties to President Trump, Friedman took issue with ... Natalie Portman
On Tuesday the former US Special Envoy for Israeli-Palestinian negotiations, Martin Indyk, took to Twitter to announce that the President had changed his mind on the biggest Middle East crisis in years, now in its seventh month.

The envoys, namely, Dennis Ross, Martin Indyk, Aaron David Miller and James Steinberg, were “receptive” to the extent that Palestinians thought at one point that it was a trick.

Martin Indyk. Dennis Ross. Daniel Kurtzer. Steven P. Cohen. The Arab world understood this. And it didn't undermine anything because they spoke for administrations whose pro-Israel prejudices, such as they were, were understood from the get-go. It didn't matter that the interlocutors were Jews or had ... Natalie Portman
But, as former U.S. special envoy for the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations Martin Indyk put it, the Americans "can try to limit the damage all they want, but they won't be able to, because Jerusalem is such a hot-button issue." That reality was reflected in the eruption of street protests across the Middle East soon ... Natalie Portman
Numerous independent accounts and scholarly works have autopsied the negative influence of Dennis Ross as well as Martin Indyk, the latter who twice served as U.S. ambassador to Israel, on the overall American peace efforts. Both Ross and Indyk co-founded an AIPAC-spinoff think tank and were ... Natalie Portman
But in 2013, he suddenly became the right-hand man of Martin Indyk, a former ambassador to Israel and the Obama administration's chief Mideast peace negotiator.

By speaking only of Israel's claims and underscoring their religious basis, the Trump administration demonstrated its indifference to the religious and political claims of Palestinians.

“I do not think we will ever see a more pragmatic leader in that country,” Otaiba emailed former US special envoy for the Israeli-Palestinian negotiations Martin Indyk in April. “Which is why engaging with them is so important and will yield the most results we can ever get out of Saudi [Arabia]." The UAE is ... Natalie Portman

MARTIN INDYK: Well, I would say that while we made a massive effort to meet the basic needs of both sides in formulas that the two sides could accept, the bottom line was when we put them to Abu Mazen, he was not prepared to accept them. He was not prepared to answer. Let's put it that way. He didn't ... Natalie Portman
