A round-up of global commentary for the May 25, 2015, weekly magazine.

The percentage of officer cadets who are religious has grown 10-fold since the early 1990s. Among secular Israelis, that’s being met with a mix of respect, and concern.
Hawks on Iran from the US to Israel aren't happy about a possible nuclear deal. In part, that's because it might actually work as advertised.
More than half a year after a devastating conflict in Gaza, large sections of the Palestinian territory show little sign of a rebuilding effort, leaving tensions to build toward another war.
