In an era of decentralized terrorism, digital threats, and an unpredictable political climate, national security tactics are being put to the test. This is especially true concerning Israel, Palestine, and the United States, where shifts are happening as fast as policy can be developed. How are these actors staying up-to-date with regional and domestic challenges ranging from nuclear dangers, to demographic and societal changes, and political factionalism? And what impact has America’s recent foreign policy shift had in the region? Join the Council, Chuck Freilich, and Shibley Telhami for an exploration of Israel’s national security focus, the current situation in Palestine, US relations, and the impact of Russia’s growing influence in the region.
Copies of Chuck Freilich’s latest book, Israeli National Security: A New Strategy for an Era of Change will be available for sale and signing after the program from the Book Cellar.
