Israel's 60th Anniversary
The Middle East Institute has a Viewpoints Special Report: "Israel: Growing Pains at 60." It features the opinions of many scholars on the current situation after 60 years, including those of my friend Menachem Klein, who let me know about the report which goes live Monday May 12. It provides excellent in-depth analysis to accompany the special report I just completed for Vision: "Israel's 60th Anniversary in Context."
