Jonathan Paris asks what is the impact on Israel from President Trump’s dislike of ‘endless wars’ in the Middle East?
How does the US withdrawal from northeastern Syria affect Israel's adversaries in the region? Will the anti-Iranian regime protests in Iran, Iraq and Lebanon make Iran more cautious towards Israel? Will less America force Israel to take more risks including the targeting of Iran’s nuclear programme? Will less America spark the emergence of an Israeli-Saudi coalition to contain Iran? Will post-Netanyahu Israel be more or less secure than during the last decade?
