Obviously, U.S.-Israeli relations are important in the Middle East. They are much closer in creating strong ties and a solid strategy towards Iran. In fact, President Barack Obama’s historic visit to the Middle East has made a vigorous effort to quell tensions in that particular region. His three-day trip to Israel is a positive indication that the U.S. has reached out to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel.

For one thing, Israel has a keen sense of urgency to take military action against Tehran. Netanyahu has noted that Iran should be dissuaded from having the ability to build a nuclear weapon. Netanyahu has argued that he is “absolutely convinced” that Obama has been adamant in preventing a nuclear-armed Iran. David Gordon, our foreign correspondent in Israel, chronicles the story between President
Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu.
In this issue, on page 10, we cover research conducted at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) using brain-computer interface (BCI) technology and training programs that allow a quadriplegic to perform a number movements. Jan Scheuermann, a quadriplegic for nine years, fed herself using a mind-controlled robot arm.
