Eight weeks after Hamas brutally killed over 1,200 Israelis and kidnapped 239 hostages, some hostages were exchanged and humanitarian convoys flowed into the Gaza Strip during a cease-fire. Hovering over the weeks of conflict, the United States and Iran possess major influence over enduring conflict. How does the resumption of fighting between Hamas and Israel affect the U.S.-Israeli relationship, and how does that relationship affect the way Israel fights to eliminate Hamas? Joining us for CIE’s ninth weekly webinar to provide their special insights are Vance Serchuk, an Adjunct Senior Fellow at the Center for a New American Security who was a senior aide to Sen. Joe Lieberman, and Ambassador Danny Ayalon, a former Knesset member who served as Israel’s Ambassador to the United States from 2002 to 2006. Dr. Ken Stein, the CIE President and Emory University Professor Emeritus of Middle Eastern history and political science, moderates the 42-minute discussion.
