Israel: In the eye of the Arab storm
Giora Eiland – Head, Israeli National Security Council, 2004-2006
Today my guest is Giora Eiland.
Israel says the unrest in the Middle East did not harm Jerusalem. But the Arab Spring has inspired many Palestinians to step up the fight for independence, and Israel’s closest neighbors, Syria and Egypt, are still in turmoil. How does the Jewish State cope with the revolutionary spirit inside and outside its borders?
We put that question to the senior research fellow of the Israeli Institute for National Security Studies and the former head of the Israeli Security Council, Giora Eiland.
