“Greetings from Israel, Wish I Weren’t Here”: The Awkward Subtext of Blinken’s Visit with Bibi
Secretary of State Antony Blinken traveled to a very different Israel than one might have expected a year ago. Benjamin Netanyahu is back in power with a more hard right government and an Israeli raid in the West Bank and a shooting in Jerusalem have raised the the temperature of Israel-Palestinian tensions. David discusses Blinken’s visit and the larger relationship between the U.S. and Israel with Rosa Brooks of Georgetown University, Kori Schake of the American Enterprise Institute, and Alon Pinkas of Haaretz. What did Secretary Blinken say and do in Israel? How should the U.S. work with a hard right Israeli government? What do this mean for the future revival chances of the JCPOA? Find out during this insightful conversation. Don’t miss it!
