The recent meeting between President Barack Obama and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu exposed significant differences on policy approaches regarding Arab-Israeli peace negotiations and how to block Iran's drive for nuclear weapons.  Are there linkages between these two issues?  How does Iran's growing power affect Israel's security needs and its strategy for peace negotiations with the Palestinians and other Arabs?  What are the implications for American policy on these issues?
