The US - Israel Relationship: Origins, Present and Future
The US and Israel have had a special relationship for decades, and regarded as the closest of allies. Yet the relationship has seen ups and downs in recent years, and seems to be undergoing a transformation. This session will provide a look at the roots of the relationship - from the origins of America's support for Israel, through its early years, and the development of the "special relationship". The many avenues of cooperation between the two countries will be explored - from military and diplomacy to technology, business and culture.
