For the seventh episode of “The Discourse,” I interviewed prominent nuclear arms scholar Emily Landau at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee Policy Conference.
Topics included the Iranian nuclear deal, Iranian aggression in Syria and other parts of the Middle East, and how U.S. policy toward Lebanon could affect its policy in Syria because of Hezbollah’s stronghold on Lebanon and role in backing Syrian president Bashar Al-Assad.
Landau is a senior research fellow at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv. Her expertise includes nuclear proliferation, arms control, regional security dynamics in the Middle East, and other related topics. In 2015, Forbes chose Landau as one of Israel’s 50 most influential women.
