Summary: On our second episode of Outside the Box, Mike and Jim discuss U.S.-Israel relations after the Trump Administration. Under the 45th President, the United States moved closer to the positions of the Binyamin Netanyahu’s Likud government than any previous Administration, recognizing Israeli sovereignty over the occupied Golan Heights, moving the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, encouraging the historic Abraham Accords between the Jewish state and the United Arab Emirates, and withdrawing from the Obama Administration’s Iran nuclear deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). On the other hand, the Israel-Palestine conflict remains frozen and the new Biden Administration has committed itself to reengaging Iran. To discuss these and other issues, Mike and Jim are joined by Jessica Smith, Chief Operating Officer, and Dylan Williams, Senior Vice President for Policy and Strategy of J Street, an organization committed to providing a political home for pro-Israel, pro-peace Americans.
