    Analysis: Kerry’s failed mission in Cairo  

    By ZVI MAZEL,

    For the second time in less than a year, an American envoy bearing gifts was met with violent protests.

    There must have been some soul-searching in Washington last week, following Secretary of State John Kerry’s visit to Cairo. Gone are the days of Hosni Mubarak, America’s staunch ally, leader of the Arab world, and keeper of the region’s stability and of the peace treaty with Israel.

    For the second time in less than a year, an American envoy bearing gifts was met with violent protests.

    Last July, then-secretary of state Hillary Clinton, coming to Cairo for a first contact with the newly elected president, Mohamed Morsi – the Muslim Brotherhood candidate – found herself confronted by mobs of non-Islamist opponents of the regime as well as Copts angry at America’s support for the Brothers that it was claimed had been instrumental in their victory.

    The Current Limits of U.S.-Israel Security Cooperation  

    by Shoshana Bryen GATESTONE INSTITUTE

    This patronizing attitude is reflected in the President’s assertion that Israel’s democratically elected leaders “don’t know what’s in their own self-interest.” While missile defense cooperation continues, the administration has taken overt steps to tell the Arab and Muslim world that the U.S. is severable from Israel.

    Shared values and democratic systems count for a lot in the political world — and they can advance military cooperation — but national security interests can evolve without them. No one would mistake Saudi Arabia or Bahrain for a country that shares American values, yet the U.S. Central Command works closely and cooperatively with both.

    Israel shares American values in many ways, but a shared security outlook is something else, hinging on threat perceptions that may no longer be coincident.

    The India-Israel Alliance – Part II  

    By Cliff Pinto, TOI 

    I previously wrote about the gradual transition of India’s Israel policy, from one of hostility to the collaborative stance adopted in 1992 – and the rationale for this shift.

    Here, I will further analyze the causes for India’s diplomatic shift and provide a timeline of key events in the changing relationship.

    [A] A DEEPER INSIGHT INTO THE CAUSES

     (1) BLOOD IS THICKER THAN WATER

    “What have the Arabs given us, if I may ask? Did they vote for usin the Kashmir issue? Were they supportive of us when we had the East Pakistan crisis (1971)?” blasted J.N. Dixit, the foreign secretary of India – and Indian National Congress (INC) Party member – in a January 1992 interview, shortly after normalization with Israel. (Read more…)

    Obama is coming to sweeten pill of nuclear Iran  

    DEBKAfile reports from its Washington sources that President Obama’s calculations for making the trip are a lot more complicated than Kerry’s. According to some Israeli circles, none of them are good news for their country.

    He arrives less than a month after the last Six-Power (US, Russia, UK, France, China and Germany) nuclear discussions with Iran ended in Kazakhstan.

    After those talks, US and Western media trumpeted “an unusual sense of optimism” or more cautiously allowed “a faint and perhaps fleeting light at the end of one of the world’s most durable tunnels.”

    Arab refugee status should not be transferred to chidren  

    By Benjamin Weinthal, JPOST

    NEW YORK – At a small conference at the Harvard Club in Manhattan on Thursday, a host of dignitaries and experts, including Israel’s envoy to the UN Ron Prosor, addressed the UN’s classification of Palestinian refugees as the principal stumbling block to a peace agreement between Israel and the PLO.

    The conference was the opening salvo in the direction of drafting of US legislation meant to end the automatic transmission of refugee status to the descendents of Palestinians that has been taking place since 1948, just as Filippo Grandi, commissioner-general of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), prepared to hold a press conference on Monday on Palestinian refugees becoming a “forgotten population” in an increasingly turbulent region.

    The Palestine Papers released in Jan 2011  

    By Ted Belman

    The following articles were published in the Guardian on Jan 23/11. They suggest according to the authors that Israel had a partner for peace. The major problem I have with the authors is that they keep repeating that the settlements, including in Jerusalem, are illegal. This is flat out wrong though widely believed. The second problem I have with them is that they keep writing about what the Palestinians were willing to give us. It is not theirs to give, it is ours to keep.

    What I liked about the articles is that they stressed what Rice and livni had to say about the negotiations:

      But the offer was rejected out of hand by Israel because it did not include a big settlement near the city Ma’ale Adumim as well as Har Homa and several others deeper in the West Bank, including Ariel.
