US-Israel Relations: Between the White House, Congress, and the Israeli Government
29 October 2019, 5:15-6:45pm
Room 1005 FedEx Global Education Center, UNC-Chapel Hill
There is a growing split between Democrats and Republicans, as well as between the White House and Congress, on the issue of Israel and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. In addition, Israel went through two elections within five months, and could have another one quite soon. Israeli journalist Amir Tibon will discuss recent events in Washington, DC and in Israel and the impact they could have on the U.S.-Israel relationship, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and the broader Middle East.
