Recording- The New York Times’ Thomas Friedman on the Crisis in Israel

New York Times Columnist Thomas Friedman on the Crisis in Israel

Three-time Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Friedman is one of America’s most influential foreign affairs columnists.

Over the past three months, Friedman has devoted several of his New York Times columns to the crisis in Israel. He ended one of his most recent columns with these words: “Israel and the U.S. are friends. But today, one party in this friendship — Israel — is changing its fundamental character. President Biden, in the most caring but clear way possible, needs to declare that these changes violate America’s interests and values and that we are not going to be Netanyahu’s useful idiots and just sit in silence.”

In this webinar, Friedman analyzes the crisis in Israel-US relations, comments on its repercussions, and talks about what the US government and American citizens can do to help prevent Israel from becoming a hollow democracy.
