B’nai B’rith International, the Begin-Sadat Center of Strategic Studies (BESA) and the Center for Righteousness and Integrity will hold a conference on “Strategic Challenges in Saudi Arabia, Iran and the Gulf” on Feb. 22, 2018 at Bar-Ilan University. The conference will be held in English with simultaneous Hebrew translation.
The conference will offer cutting edge discussion of the new strategic challenges in the Persian Gulf: Can Iran's hegemonic drive be contained and its nuclear program reversed? How likely is Iranian-Israeli confrontation in Syria? Will Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman succeed in reforming the kingdom? How real is the evolving Israeli-Saudi alliance? Are the Gulf states a spent power?
B’nai B’rith International CEO Daniel S. Mariaschin and Center for Righteousness and Integrity President Reva Oliner will provide opening remarks. Other scheduled speakers in the conference include leading experts from Israel and abroad including: Gary P. Saltzman, B’nai B’rith president and Alan Schneider, B’nai B’rith World-Jerusalem director.
