Global rivalries, regional impact

The United States government defines Russia and China as its main global adversaries, in the sectors of trade, diplomacy, cyber and security. While it has not clashed with those powers militarily, it does see such a confrontation down the road as a viable scenario. How does the Middle East in general, and Israel in particular, fit into this emerging reality?

Guests Prof. Zeev Khanin, Expert on Russian and Middle Eastern Studies, Bar Ilan and Ariel Universities, and Lt. Col. Reuven Ben-Shalom, cross-cultural strategist and associate at the International Institute for Counterterrorism. Analyst Amir Oren. Host Jonathan Hessen.
