    The recent act passed in the U.S. House of Representatives — even if endorsed by the Senate and signed into law by the president — is unlikely to be effective in eliminating antisemitism in the United States. A kind of national reconciliation will be required.

    The protracted conflict may force the U.S. president to alienate Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu to the point of jeopardizing the special relationship, thereby causing powerful Jewish voters and lobbies to withdraw their support. Other traditional Democratic constituencies, such as Muslim-Americans, may follow suit.

    The attack near Russia’s capital has sounded the alarm, once again, that terrorism is not far away. The U.S. has backed off from its leadership role, which only removes obstacles for international jihadists. Renewed cooperation is needed now more than ever.

    Given the credibility problem of colonial powers, allegations about Chinese “genocide” in boarding school education are not worth a dime. The central government deserves praise, not slander, for ensuring the right to education in rural areas of Tibet and elsewhere.

    President Joe Biden’s trip didn’t measure up to expectations. That’s because America’s hegemony in the region is not what it used to be. If the Biden administration had recognized this early, U.S. diplomacy would have been more rewarding.

    The U.S. president has failed to reverse the harmful effects of Donald Trump’s sanctions. In fact, by continuing them, especially in the high-tech arena, America has unleashed a vigorous wave of energy in China to catch up, which will only lead to a loss of U.S. market share.
