Turmoil in the Middle East: The Impact of Instability in Yemen on the Future of Arab-Israeli Relations
Wednesday, May 20, 2015, Lobby Gathering 7:15pm Events Begins 7:30pm
Amid the unfolding crisis in Yemen, Washington is dispatching aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt to the coast of Yemen to prepare to intercept potential shipments of Iranian weapons to the Houthi rebels fighting the U.S.-backed government of Yemen. This comes as the Obama-administration has just reached a framework agreement with Iran over Tehran's controversial nuclear program.
While U.S.-Israeli relations are at a historic low, what does the impending Iran agreement mean for the future of Arab-Israeli relations and for Israeli-Saudi relations in particular?
