Knesset member Yossi Shain: US needs to work with Israel on new regional alliances, Iran
00:00 / 39:35
Ben Caspit speaks this week with Professor Yossi Shain, an international expert on political science who recently left the academic world to join Israeli politics. The new member of the Knesset from Yisrael Beitenu says that after the United States' painful withdrawal from Afghanistan, it must now reevaluate and determine American interests in the region. It also must reposition itself as a superpower vis-à-vis China. "Now, the administration has the opportunity to sit with the Israelis, their major allies who are also well equipped on intelligence, and really understand the risks, the advantages and the disadvantages the Middle East presents," he says.
