Join us on Thursday, January 25 at 5:30pm to hear scholar and famed speaker Emile Nakhleh deliver a Status Report on the Middle East. What is happening exactly in Saudi Arabia? Will its reforms ripple across the Arab world? What are the implications and consequences of the current demonstrations in Iran? Will this affect the president’s possible recertification of the Iran nuclear deal? What happens now that the US intends to move its embassy to Jerusalem – is the two-state solution over? And, perhaps most of all, how should US foreign policy respond to each of these developments?
One or two things going on.
