Expectations at rock bottom as Bennett heads to Washington

Naftali Bennett, Israel’s prime minister, is due in Washington this week for his first tete-a-tete with Joe Biden, the US president.

Iran, by all accounts, tops the agenda. The Palestinians come second.

The visit marks the culmination of a flurry – or perhaps more accurately, a gentle breeze – of activity that has seen America’s top three diplomats on Palestine meet Israeli and Palestinian leaders over the past several weeks.

Last week’s visit of William Burns, the head of the CIA, was the culmination of a series that also saw special envoy Hady Amr and Secretary of State Antony Blinken push for a return to some normalcy after the clownish turbulence of the Trump years and the boorish bravado of Benjamin Netanyahu.
