Resources from JCRC for Understanding the Recent Developments in U.S. – Israel Relations

In the wake of the U.S. abstention on the U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334 vote on December 23rd and Secretary of State John Kerry’s December 28th speech at the State Department, there have been a tidal wave of articles, opinion pieces and critiques. The following analyses provide what we believe are some of the most thoughtful insights into the implications of the resolution’s passage and the developing situation. We will continue to follow the Administration’s remarks leading up to the January 15 international peace conference in Paris, and will provide resources accordingly.
