The Experts Series: Whose Land?
Sponsored by The International Legal Forum. The legal and historical right of the Israeli people and the State of Israel is a question of paramount importance. Over the past decades not enough attention was given to the emerging anti-Israel narrative, which took advantage of this vacuum and filled it with false data, distorted versions of history, and a cynical use of legal terminology when these in fact do not exist, or the use of places and interpretations that are completely wrong.

A Very Narrowly Defined Defense Treaty Between the United States and Israel
Featuring Dr. Michael Makovsky. Ever since its founding in 1948, the Israeli military has always had as a dominant part of its military philosophy that they fight all of their battles by themselves. Senator Lindsey Graham had made a rather startling announcement in June 2019 that he would like to see a defense treaty between Israel and the United States. Israeli officials indicated that the government of Israel was in favor of such a narrowly defined defense treaty.

The New Arab Bloc and the Future of Israeli Sovereignty with Caroline Glick
Two things seem clear from the recent series of elections in Israel: the anti-Zionist Joint Arab List has become a major voting bloc and the Israeli left is ready to accommodate their rise. How did the Arab political parties become political kingmakers in the Zionist state? Why does the Israeli Left seem so ready to accept this? What is driving these monumental changes in Israeli politics?
