Beyond the Headlines: The Developing Ties Between Israel & Islamic States: A Fireside Chat With Joshua Krasna, Senior Fellow At The Foreign Policy Research Institute

March 15, 2023

In recent years, Israel has celebrated a number of high-profile peace agreements with Arab and Islamic countries in the Middle East and Africa, including Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Morocco, Sudan, and others.

And while these normalization agreements have been widely celebrated in Israel, they don’t provide a complete picture of what’s happening beneath the surface regarding relations between the Jewish State and countries in the Middle East and beyond.

What kind of relations does Israel enjoy with other Islamic countries, and why are some of them holding back from expanding or otherwise formalizing ties?

In this week’s podcast, we sit down with Joshua Krasna. Joshua is an Israel-based researcher, commentator, and teacher specializing in strategic studies, intelligence studies, and international politics of the Middle East, the Arab World, and Israel. He serves as the Director, of the Center for Emerging Energy Politics in the Middle East; a political and strategic analyst at the Foreign Policy Research Institute.
