Fears that Israel’s new right-wing government could ignite another bout of violence in the Mideast appeared justified by the visit of Israeli Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir to the religiously symbolic Haram al-Sharif, or Temple Mount, in Jerusalem earlier this month. Analysts worry that a series of provocative acts could lead to a security breakdown in the West Bank and test developing Israel-Mideast Gulf state relations. For now, moribund nuclear negotiations mean Iran may not prove to be a source of discord between Washington and Israel, as when Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was last in office.
