Capitol Hill Webinar – The Khashoggi Affair; Why, Now, the Sudden Interest?

March 4 @ 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM


FEATURING:

Caroline Glick Author, Columnist, and Speaker


About this webinar: Last week, the Biden administration released a report on the assassination of Jamal Khashoggi. The report stops short directly implicates Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman as being responsible for Mr. Khashoggi’s gruesome murder.

Why was this report released to the public at the beginning of the Biden administration? How does this affect America’s relationship with Saudi Arabia? Does this have anything to do with the administration’s firm desire to negotiate with Iran, a sworn enemy of Saudi Arabia? How does this affect the nascent emerging alliance between Israel and the Gulf states and the Abraham Accords?


Caroline Glick was born in Chicago and made aliya to Israel in 1991, after receiving her BA in Political Science from Columbia University.  She joined the IDF that summer and served as an officer for more than five years. As an IDF captain from 1994 to 1996, she served as coordinator of negotiations with the PLO in the office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in Judea, Samaria and Gaza. After leaving the IDF at the end of 1996, she worked as the assistant to the director general of the Israel Antiquities Authority. She then returned to geo-politics serving as assistant foreign policy advisor to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu from 1997 to 1998.

Caroline’s writings have been published in numerous newspapers and online journals: in 2004, in addition to her work at the Post, she resumed writing for Makor Rishon as the paper’s lead columnist and commentator.  Caroline is the senior fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs at the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC and travels several times a year to Washington where she routinely briefs senior administration officials and members of Congress on issues of joint Israeli-American concern.
