Israel acts as America’s linchpin in the Middle East, serving as a source of stability and strength in the increasingly volatile region. Ever since the establishment of the State of Israel in 1948, the Jewish State has been a natural ally of the US; it is the only Democracy in the Middle East, shares the same Western values, and has many of the same national security interests. Both Israel and America are in a fight against radical Islam, are working to oppose the hegemonic Iranian ambitions in the Middle East, and seek to curb the spread of Islamic terrorism. Israel provides significant intelligence to the U.S., and its strategic location has been vital for the United States’ security.
Please join us as Mark Langfan explores the strategic value of Israel to the United States, particularly at this time now that Syria is a failed State, Iran, and its proxy Shi’ite militia groups, are gaining further control in the region, and Islamist Turkey is expanding its foothold in Syria, attacking U.S. allies in the region.
