Vice President Joe Biden will visit Israel this week. The Jerusalem Post's Tovah Lazaroff reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu looked forward to the visit, as it represented "the strong relations between Israel and our ally the U.S.":

“There are those who predicted the collapse of these relations – it is not so. The relationship is strong in all areas, and also in face of the challenges that we are together standing against in our region. I will discuss this, of course, with the vice president during his visit,” Netanyahu said.

The two leaders are expected to talk about Iran, Syria and the frozen Israeli-Palestinian peace process, although no new initiative on that front is expected during the visit.

Biden will spend two days in Israel and the Palestinian territories, where he will meet with Netanyahu and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.
