From the Jewish Daily Forward a solid background story on the state of U.S. relations with Israel, the Palestinian Authority, and the general mess in that part of the Middle East. The story focuses on the state of relations between George Mitchell who works for the State Department and Dennis Ross who seems to work for a couple of different entities, including the White House.
