Great Decisions: Israel and the U.S. – Dr. Barbara Tint, Associate Professor of Conflict, Portland State University (February 28)

Modern Israel’s struggles with the Palestinians have turned what was meant as a safe haven for Jews into the center of a decades-long conflict. The U.S. has stepped in as Israel’s ally due to the two countries’ shared values, providing years of unparalleled military and diplomatic support. But now those ties are being tested. The Arab Spring, Iran’s nuclear ambitions, failed peace talks, and Israel’s own decision to give Washington the cold shoulder have put new strains on the 65-year-old “special relationship.” Join this talk with Dr. Barbara Tint, Associate Professor of Conflict Resolution for the Conflict Resolution Graduate Program at Portland State University.
