"Israel is deceptively calm and prosperous," a US diplomatic cable said on November 12 2009 in preparation for Deputy Secretary of State James Steinberg's visit to the country, whistle-blower website WikiLeaks revealed Sunday.

The cable went on to say that "the security situation inside Israel is the best since the outbreak of the Second Intifada, the economy has weathered the storms of the international economic crisis, and Netanyahu's governing coalition is stable, for the time being at least."
