President Barack Obama recently spoke with the Atlantic’s Jeffery Goldberg in wide ranging interview covering a number of Middle East topics. Among them, President Obama referred to a “change in demographics” as part of the “closing window” for the Israelis to make peace with their Palestinian neighbors. Certainly the President is not the first to trot out reports that Israel faces threats to either the Jewish or the democratic nature of its state if it does not relinquish control over Judea and Samaria to the Palestinians. But how accurate are such claims?
Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger will address those statements with a concise and factual examination of what the real demographics of the region actually suggest.
Additionally, Amb. Ettinger will discuss the threat posed by an Iranian nuclear bomb. Is there still a credible “military option” as President Obama indicated in his interview with Goldberg? With the current administration fixated on diplomacy with an interim agreement that many experts believe has left Iran “open for business” and its nuclear program still churning, will Israel have to “go it alone?” If so what kind of assistance will it need from the United States, and from Pro-Israel Americans?
