AMA: Israeli National Security Expert on Jerusalem Recognition, Iran Deal, and More

From Hezbollah and Assad in the North, to Hamas in Gaza to ISIS in the Sinai to Iran to the east, Israel's security situation is today as it has been since 1948 - complicated.

Chuck Freilich, an internationally renowned scholar, author, and national security advisor, will have the answers to your questions during this live Q and A. Read more
