Shifting Alliances and Policies to Counter the Islamic Republic of Iran
The Abraham Accords between Israel and the United Arab Emirates was the first in a new wave of peace agreements—now including Bahrain, Sudan, Bhutan, and Morocco—where Arab countries elected to de-prioritize historical animosities with Israel and instead emphasize their own national interests. The leading impetus for normalization was the mutual concern of the threats posed by the Islamic Republic of Iran and the opportunities that coordination would allow to better address these threats.
To understand how Washington and its partners can best counter Iran’s nuclear and other illicit activities and strengthen Israeli-Arab cooperation, please join us for a conversation with Mark Dubowitz, chief executive of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, a Washington, D.C.-based nonpartisan policy institute.
Sanctioned by Iran in 2019, Mark is a leading expert on Iran’s nuclear program and global threat network. He is widely recognized as one of the key influencers in shaping policies to counter the threats from the regime in Iran and to promote Middle East normalization.
The event will be moderated by Danny Nerenberg, past long-time board member of Nassau Synagogue, Zionist, and Israeli politics and news enthusiast.
Free, virtual, and open to the community. Instructions to join via Zoom provided with registration.
