In their first meeting since Donald Trump assumed the presidency, the new President of the United States and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel are expected to reach some understandings on the chief national security challenges facing Israel. To discuss these challenges and the way in which the two leaders perceive them, and to set the stage for the March 14 meeting in the Oval Office, PeaceCast formatted a February 9th APN briefing call with Israeli national security expert Yossi Alpher. Using his rare analytical skills, Alpher connects the dots between Israel, Washington, the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Lebanon’s Hezbollah, Iran, Syria, Russia and beyond, to paint a coherent picture of the current US-Israel national security agenda.
