This Weeks Guest: Arthur Herman

Israel and the United States share values, interests, and a deeply rooted biblical heritage that ties them together, and most people in both countriesfrom politicians to foreign-policy experts to average citizenswant a strong relationship between them. But lately U.S.-Israel relations seem to have hit something of an impasse as the Jewish state pursues greater economic ties with the Peoples Republic of China: a nation viewed by the United Statesrightlyas a geopolitical rival.

In hisDecember 2019Mosaicessay, Hudson Institute scholar Arthur Herman delves into the sources of this tension between friends and proposes a path forward for both Israel and America. In this podcast, he joins host Jonathan Silver to discuss the evolving nature of Israels relationship with China, how that relationship has strained ties with Israels most reliable ally, and how Israel and the United States can not only preserve but actually deepen and enhance their special relationship as both seek to meet the challenge of Chinas rise.

Musical selections in this podcast are drawn from the Quintet for Clarinet and Strings, op. 31a, composed by Paul Ben-Haim and performed by the ARC Ensemble, the original Broadway cast recording of Fiddler on the Roof, and Above the Ocean by Evan MacDonald.
