The Ultimate Ally with Peter Beinart
Join us for the third and last session of our series, as we discuss the change in attitude towards Israel among some of the leading Arab countries. Some of these changes were attributed to US-Israel relations in the past few years. But is this all there is to it? Peter Beinart will explore another fascinating aspect of US-Israel relations in the last decade and some of its outcomes on pressing matters. This program is structured as a conversation with the participants, so come prepared with questions!
