Fractured Alliance? The Future of U.S.-Turkey Relations
12:30 - 1:30 p.m. Conference Call
Two years after the UN-brokered cease-fire between Israeli forces and Hezbollah gunmen in southern Lebanon, lasting peace remains elusive.
Steven Simon and Jonathan Stevenson argue that demilitarizing Hezbollah is crucial to rolling back Iranian influence in the Middle East and shaping an environment more conducive to Arab-Israeli accomodation.
Ed Husain hosts author Matt Levitt in a discussion of Hezbollah's terrorist activities, focusing on the group's presence internationally and including not only attempted and successful attacks, but also the group's illegal financial activities.
