On the heels of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's reelection—and in anticipation of President Obama’s forthcoming trip to Israel, the West Bank, and Jordan—the New America Foundation's Middle East Task Force will host a discussion on expectations for the visit and for the president’s second term.
We’ll examine the likely motivations for and possible outcomes of the President’s upcoming trip. Is the visit an attempt to reinvigorate his administration’s relationship with Netanyahu, restart peace talks, or an equal effort to achieve both objectives? Is the newly reelected Obama serious about an Israeli-Palestinian settlement? Does the new Israeli government (and a weakened Netanyahu) present a fresh opportunity for dialogue on a settlement? Or, will other regional conflicts take precedence on the agenda?
Join us for an in-depth analysis of these issues and more on March 6.
