middle-east alliance

The normalization between Israel and several nations in the Arab world continues to take place, regardless of what happens in U.S. politics.  To talk about this and other things today, we are joined from Israel by Professor Efraim Inbar and Dr. Eran Lerman (jiss.org.il), President and Vice President respectively of the Jerusalem Institute for Strategy and Security. 

Together, both men draw on their extensive Israeli experience to discuss the unusual alignments being formed due to a commonality of opposition in the region.  They go on to praise the Trump administration for its pro-Israel policies and examine whether a hypothetical Biden administration would undo many if not all of the successes of President Trump.  There are many threats facing Israel, not the least of which is Iran, and the alliances being formed in the region will only serve to strengthen Israel's defense no matter the position of the West.
