http://www.jpost.com/Opinion/Op-EdContributors/Article.aspx?id=169785, February 28, 2010

The February 2010 visit to Israel by Admiral Mullen, the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs-of-Staff, sheds light on the larger context of US-Israel relations, which transcends the Arab-Israeli conflict,  leverages Israel's unique capabilities, and benefits both the US and Israel. The visit reaffirms that US policy toward Israel is based, primarily, on regional and global strategic interests and not on domestic politics. US-Israel relations do not resemble a one-way-street (the US gives and Israel receives), but a mutually-beneficial two-way-street.

The exclusion of the Arab-Israeli conflict from President Obama's 2010 State of the Union Address reflects a US order of priorities and, possibly, a concern that mediation in the Arab-Israeli conflict does not advance – but undermines – Obama's domestic standing.

Straight from the Jerusalem Boardroom #140, January 25, 2010

1.  The London Economist (January 2010): Israel's 2009 economic performance, in face of global meltdown, suggests impressive growth in 2010. Israel's GDP grew in 2009 by 0.5%, compared to an average 3.5% decline in OECD countries: US – 2.5% decline, Japan – 6.5% decline, Germany – 4.9% decline, Britain – 4.7% decline, Italy – 4.8% decline, Ireland – 7.5% decline, etc.  The Economist projects a 3.7% growth for Israel's 2010 economy and less than 7% unemployment (7.7% in 2009), compared with a 2.4% OECD growth and 8.8% OECD unemployment.  Israel's inflation is projected to be 1.7%, compared to 3% in 2009 and OECD's inflation of 1.2% (1.3% in 2009).

Scott Brown's victory, in the race for the Massachusetts Senate seat, constitutes an unprecedented earthquake in US politics. If a Massachusetts Senate seat is not safe, then no House, Senate or White House seat is safe anymore!
