Two Roundtables on the Middle East with Professor Uzi Arad

03.11.2011

On October 6-7, 2011, PSSI had the unique opportunity to host Professor Uzi Arad, former Foreign Policy Advisor to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. During the first round-table, Prof. Arad spoke about the factors which determine Israeli security and defense actions. He also explored in detail the history, geography, aspirations, values, and circumstances influencing Israeli strategy. In the second round-table, Prof. Arad's lecture focused on the Middle East in 2012: What to expect. When touching on the issue of the Arab Spring, Prof. Arad mentioned that there is no precedent from the past for such an event. It was not organized by a well developed revolutionary structure.  Rather, it was a spontaneous action organized via new media. Yet, according to Prof. Arad, the political changes in the region may lead to further politicization of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Prof. Arad also lebeled the militarization of the Middle East as a dangerous phenomenon, alluding to the number of countries with nuclear ambitions in the region. In his speech, Prof. Arad concluded by evaluating current Israeli-Turkish relations.
