Getting the U.S.-Israel Relationship Back on Track

By Jonathan Green­blatt
CEO of the Anti-Defamation League

This arti­cle orig­i­nally appeared on The Huff­in­g­ton Post Blog

As Israeli Prime Min­is­ter Ben­jamin Netanyahu arrives this week­end in the U.S. and pre­pares to meet Pres­i­dent Obama next week, there is an oppor­tu­nity for the two coun­tries to reboot rela­tions head­ing into the final stretch of the Obama Administration.

National Direc­tor of the Anti-Defamation League

At the very moment that a nuclear deal with Iran is look­ing closer to real­ity, Iran is expand­ing its influ­ence through­out the Mid­dle East. To the Saudis, the Emi­rates and Israel — all of whom see Iran as the great­est threat in the region — this is a dis­turb­ing phenomenon.

Israel has reacted by call­ing on the United States to link the nuclear nego­ti­a­tions to Iran’s broader behav­ior in the region. …
