U.S. Elections Special; implications for the MidEast

With two months to go before the inauguration of presumed President-Elect Joe Biden, the transition process is slowly taxing on the runway in order to take off. Biden is considering his top cabinet, White House and agency appointments, while the Trump administration is less than helpful in sharing essential information, facilities and services, in light of legal disputes and allegations pertaining to Election fraud. And while the Middle East is evidently bracing itself ahead of a transition of power in Washington – Jerusalem officials are seemingly challenged with protecting America’s historic bi-partisan support, enjoyed for many decades.

Guests Mr. Robert Silverman, Lecturer at Shalem College and Former President of the American Foreign Service Association, and Ambassador (retired) Yoram Ettinger, Expert on Middle East and US-Israel relations. Analyst Amir Oren. Host Jonathan Hessen.
