Israel and the Strategic Challenges in the Middle East

March 04, 2014 // 12:30pm1:30pm

The strategic landscape of the Middle East is changing: old assumptions are being challenged and new forces are emerging. How has Israel’s position been altered by the Arab Spring, turmoil in Egypt, and the civil war in Syria? And in Iran, is change real – apparent progress on a nuclear deal, a new president – or just a shift in perceptions and politics? Amidst this, has there been any change in prospects for peace between Israel and the Palestinians? No one is better placed to help us understand these complex shifts than Yuval Steinitz, Israel’s Minister of Intelligence. As Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visits Washington, Steinitz sets out his view of the challenges.
