Between the 'Zone of Immunity' and the 'Zone of Trust': US-Israel Relations in Light of Iran's Continuing Nuclearization
In his comments on Iran in March 2012, President Obama noted several points of strategic importance for both the US and Israel. Alongside the two nations’ shared concern about Iranian nuclearization, there were however clear differences of opinion about how to stop Iran's problematic defiance and nuclear progress. This essay considers the main emphases to emerge from the leaders' comments and tries to assess their significance, especially for the State of Israel.
