Scott talks with Grant F. Smith about an article he recently wrote on the major blow the Saudis dealt Israel by reengaging with Iran. Scott and Smith assess the damage this has done to Israel’s plans for the region. They then discuss whether this major development makes a war against Iran more or less likely.
Discussed on the show:
- “Israel and its US lobby Dealt Major Blow by China Saudi Iran Peace Initiative” (Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy)
- How Israel Made AIPAC Podcast
Grant F. Smith is the author of a number of books including Big Israel: How Israel’s Lobby Moves America, Divert!, and most recently The Israel Lobby Enters State Government: Rise of the Virginia Israel Advisory Board.
