Israel in a Changing Arab World

Robert Malley

Analysts at the Middle East Policy Council's 67th Capitol Hill Conference titled "Israel, Turkey & Iran in a Changing Arab World" addressed how the national interests of these three nations have been affected by the ongoing political upheavals in the broader Middle East, particularly the challenge to the Syrian regime. 

Robert Malley, Middle East and North Africa Program Director at the International Crisis Group, argued that the uncertainty and unpredictability of the upheavals in the Arab World have made Israel more cautious about pre-empting perceived threats there, but may enable Israel to act more boldly in pre-empting Iran’s nuclear program.
