US president's move using Israeli private security brings prospect of a new conflict in the Middle East ever closerThe use of an Israeli private security firm to dig for dirt on senior members of the Obama administration linked to the Iran nuclear deal, as revealed in today's Observer, shows how far President Donald Trump and the hawks around him are willing to go to destroy the agreement.The 2015 deal is the last major element of Barack Obama's foreign policy legacy left standing, after nearly 16 months of the Trump era. The drive to unravel the agreement is both deeply personal – driven by Trump's animus towards his predecessor – and global in its implications for international peace and security.

Today, the momentum is with young activists: "˜These kids are the ones we've been waiting for'Hours after a gunman shot and killed 20 children and six educators at the Sandy Hook elementary school, Barack Obama was visibly struggling with how he would respond to the unspeakable tragedy while huddling with his aides inside the Oval Office.It was 14 December 2012, the day Obama would later deem the most difficult of his presidency.

Peter Prowse on anti-poverty campaigns and Martin London on "˜dimensions of inequality'Peter Baker's long read (13 April) on the minimum wage and US living wage misses two important points. First, during Barak Obama's presidency, the US national wage was increased only twice and this actually triggered a wave of living-wage campaigns and galvanised the campaign for $15 an hour. This rate was not costed, or calculated but used as a rallying call for various campaigns during 2013-16. By 2017, more than 40 cities and US states had set their own local wages, ranging from $8.50 to $16 per hour. In most cases, the higher wage was phased in over several years.

In Syria, Bashar al-Assad's backers have lost sight of why chemical weapons are not allowed on – or off – the battlefield. The rest of the world has to establish a wider cost for such awful behaviourIn 2013, Barack Obama made a bargain with Syria's president, Bashar al-Assad, brokered by Russia, the latter's ally. The United States withdrew its threat to attack Mr Assad's regime for using sarin against Syrians in Damascus that summer. Hundreds died in the deadliest use of chemical weapons since the Iran–Iraq war. Mr Assad denied he had used such weapons, but in return for US restraint his regime agreed to dismantle its chemical weapons programme. Much of the country's banned substances were thought to have been destroyed, and Syria joined the treaty against their use.
