[T]he argument over the Iran deal could well stress
the long-standing and largely fruitful
political alliance between blacks and Jews
in this country.

It would be a pity if the nuclear arms debate shapes up as
a dispute between U.S. supporters of Netanyahu’s policies
and Americans who respect and trust Obama’s judgment.
And it would be a sorrow to those of us who still look with favor upon
an alliance that has stood the test in the hardest of times.


[For an example of how that "alliance between blacks and Jews"
is realized right on the opinion pages of the Washington Post,
consider the following two opinion pieces which appeared there.]
