Israel After Egypt: Opportunities and Challenges for Peace

Wednesday, February 23, 2011

The Middle East Institute is proud to host the Honorable Robert Wexler and Dr. Yoram Peri for a discussion about the challenges facing Israel and the Middle East peace process in the wake of the resignation of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.  Some in Israel, including former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert, argue that current events in the region make it imperative that Israel move quickly to secure a peace treaty with the Palestinians. Others insist Israel proceed with caution, given the increased instability  in the region. Wexler and Peri will examine these arguments from American and Israeli policy perspectives, lending their insight and analysis to this critical question.
