Israel and U.S. Foreign Policy

  • 29 Sep 2014
  • 5:30 PM - 7:30 PM
  • San Manuel Student Union, Room 217, CSU San Bernardino, 5500 University Pkwy., San Bernardino, Park in Lot D (fee)

The depth of emotion related to U.S. – Israeli policy in public conversations sometimes makes a thoughtful and reflective examination of the issues challenging. This session will focus on U.S. policy rather than arguing positions in the conflicts. The foundation will be the 2014 Great Decisions policy briefing materials and will focus on the following global discussion questions posited by the Foreign Policy Association that develops this non partisan resource.

How can the United States simultaneously secure its diplomatic relations with countries such as Turkey and Islamic regimes in the Maghreb while retaining its strong diplomatic ties with Israel?

How can the U.S. help improve relations between Israel and other countries in the region?
