This was a week of surprises that ranged from the unexpected to the unthinkable. Here are the must-reads from this week on ForeignPolicy.com.

 

Israel’s inconclusive elections raised considerable questions about the country’s future, leading Stephen Walt to wonder if the two-state solution for peace has collapsed, and moved Leonardo DiCaprio’s Israeli, supermodel girlfriend to enter the political scene and take sides…sort of.

There were collisions in space which, make no mistake, is something to worry about, and more complications for the Obama administration’s appointments after Republican Senator Judd Gregg’s decided to back out.

There was no shortage of policy advice. Hillary Mann Leverett said that even if Ahmadinejad is crazy, the United States has got to think again about talking to Iran. And Tibita Kaneene delivered a warning on U.S. relations with China: Timothy Geithner should stay away from cheap populism and hold his tongue about the yuan.

Appropriate for Valentine’s day weekend are two amour-themed posts — David Rothkopf warns the new administration to not get lost in “those romantic deep blue eyes” of Putin’s and Stephen Walt waxes poetic on International Relations theory for lovers.
