BESA Presents Prof. Efraim Inbar – Israel’s Regional Objectives

BESA Presents Prof. Efraim Inbar – Israel’s Regional Objectives

At the “Strategic Challenges in the Eastern Mediterranean” conference, Prof. Efraim Inbar of the BESA Center reviewed the strategic landscape in the Eastern Mediterranean. The US has become absent, he said; Turkey is increasingly becoming a revisionist power; and Iran’s presence is increasing along the shores of the Mediterranean Sea. It is not clear whether the Greek-Cypriot-Israeli alignment can counter the radical Islamist powers, and it remains to be seen whether Egypt is ready to join this alignment.
