Over the past two years an additional understanding, very important in the US-Israel relationship, has been reinforced: recognition that there should be a clear separation between the US-Israel strategic relationship and the positions the United States takes in international organizations, and the diplomatic process leading to an agreement with the Palestinians. Despite the serious disputes and the public disagreements between the two countries regarding the peace process, the strategic connection between the two countries has been maintained, and even strengthened.

The achievements by the government of Israel are still not so firmly entrenched that they cannot be undermined. They are definitely not irreversible – for example, if President Obama decided to demand that Israel give him a “deposit” with explicit and detailed clarifications about its positions on the core issues, particularly the country’s borders, the refugee issue, and the status of Jerusalem. This is definitely a reasonable possibility, and the government of Israel would do well to prepare for it as soon as possible.
