Your Friday Briefing

Your Friday Briefing

Good morning.

We’re covering Japan’s attempts to boost its economy, Huawei’s mounting fight against its critics and the best TV shows, movies, books and more from this year.

. We asked our Jerusalem bureau chief, David M. Halbfinger, how that has played out.

Little has changed as a direct result; other countries have hardly lined up to follow suit. But the announcement now almost seems quaint.

What was a shock at the time was followed by many more such administration moves: shifting the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv; downgrading the diplomatic mission to the Palestinians; wholesale aid cuts; attacks on the U.N. agency for Palestinian refugees; closure of the P.L.O. office in Washington; ceasing to use the term “occupied territory”; openness to Israeli annexation of West Bank land; and, most recently, repudiation of a decades-old State Department opinion that the settlements are illegal.

The Palestinians now will have nothing to do with the Trump administration as a mediator. But their reasons for that could take up another book of the Bible.


That’s it for this briefing. We hope your weekend makes your own best of the best list.

— Melina
