Conference examines future of U.S.-Israel relations
I’ve just finished moderating two panels at the Israeli Presidential Conference in Jerusalem.

In the meantime, I’d like to share with you a couple of notes from a roundtable on the future of U.S.-Israel relations that was moderated by Mike Herzog. It was closed to the press (namely, to other press), and attended by luminaries such as Stu Eizenstat, Richard Haass, Uzi Arad, Dore Gold, Malcolm Hoenlein, Abe Foxman, Dan Mariaschin, David Makovsky and Alon Pinkas – I can’t name them all, but you get the picture (if you’re not familiar with the names, Google them). Here’s an outline of some of what was said about some of the topics discussed. It does not do justice to thetwo-hour discussion but it will give you some idea of what was going on.
