The past year has seen major political changes in Israel, the United States and Iran, and a major escalation of Israeli-Palestinian violence. How have these dramatic developments impacted Israel's national security? And how are Israeli policy makers responding to them? On November 21, join top experts and officials from Israel and the U.S. at the Haaretz-UCLA Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studies online conference on Israeli national security to learn more about Israel's most pressing strategic challenges: preventing a nuclear-armed Iran, resolving or reducing the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and ensuring bipartisan U.S. support for Israel.
THE CONFERENCE WILL BE BROADCAST ON HAARETZ.COM, OUR FACEBOOK AND YOUTUBE PAGES, AND THE UCLA Y&S NAZARIAN CENTER WEBSITE
