Join America's Roundtable Radio co-hosts Natasha Srdoc and Joel Anand Samy in a conversation with Oded Revivi, mayor of Efrat, in the Gush Etzion region of Judea and Samaria, Israel. The conversation will review Israel's leadership role in strengthening the Abraham Accords, how the rule of law foundation fuels the Israeli market economy and trade, and with an update from Judea and Samaria.
With U.S. President Joe Biden heading to the Middle East (July 13-16) with stops in Israel and Saudi Arabia, the discussion on America's Roundtable will also draw greater attention to the growing concern of the Iran nuclear threat.
“Now Tehran is much closer to having enough fissile material for a nuclear bomb, though they do not appear to have resumed their weaponization program. But we are of course alarmed, as are our partners, about the progress they've made in the enrichment field. Iran has enough highly enriched uranium on hand to make a bomb and could do so in a matter of weeks." — Robert Malley, U.S. Special Envoy for Iran.
