Dennis Ross & Ethan Bronner: The US-Israel Relationship from Truman to Obama
If there’s one expert valued above all others for setting the record straight on Israel, it’s Dennis Ross. He’s been a direct participant in shaping US policy towards Israel and the Middle East for nearly 30 years. He talks with Ethan Bronner, senior editor for international news at Bloomberg, about his new book, Doomed to Succeed. Hear what he has to say about those—including Eisenhower, Nixon, Bush and Obama—that distanced the US from Israel, how it never yielded any benefits, and how future administrations might best shape US policy in the light of understanding the priorities of Arab leaders.
