Doomed to Succeed? The US-Israel Relationship

Dennis Ross, Counselor and William Davidson Distinguished Fellow, The Washington Institute for Near East Policy

Doomed to Succeed? The US-Israel Relationship by The Chicago Council


Is America’s relationship with Israel unshakeable? Often touted as our most reliable partner in the Middle East, the recent nuclear deal with Iran and a softened American stance towards Palestine have challenged this assertion and ignited fresh debate over the relationship. According to Ambassador Dennis Ross, a 30-year veteran of the field, the separation of US and Israeli interests has rarely been to our benefit in the past, and this is unlikely to prove different now. Will the two nations rekindle their close ties, or has this oft-tested friendship been permanently altered? Join The Chicago Council and Ambassador Dennis Ross for his thoughts on the US, Israel, and the future of this storied relationship.

Dennis Ross’ new book, Doomed to Succeed: The U.S.-Israel Relationship from Truman to Obama, will be available for purchase and signing from The Book Cellar after the program.
