U.S. regional challenges and interests

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo visited Jerusalem for a few hours earlier this week, to confer with Israeli political and intelligence leaders. As usual, he touched upon the joint American-Israeli fight against Iranian aggression, as well as the so-called Trump Peace Plan and a possible change in the status of parts of the West Bank. How do these issues fit into the broader American strategy for the Middle East, less than six months before the U.S. elections?

Guests Mr. Robert Silverman, Lecturer at Shalem College and Former President of the American Foreign Service Association, and Mr. Dan Diker, Senior Fellow, Project on Political Warfare, Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. Analyst Amir Oren. Host Jonathan Hessen.
