The current Israeli attacks on the Palestinians have already spilled over into neighboring countries. The U.S. has now bombed Yemen. The stark possibility that Iran will be pulled into this war is looming larger and larger. Over forty years of U.S.-Iran tensions may soon reach their breaking point, along with other political realities in the region. Jamal Abdi will join us to help us understand the history and implications of the current crisis.
Jamal Abdi is the President of the National Iranian American Council and the founding Executive Director of NIAC Action, the group’s sister organization. Abdi first joined NIAC’s team as Policy Director in 2009 following his work in the US Congress as Policy Advisor on foreign policy, national security and immigration issues. Jamal has written for The New York Times, Foreign Policy, and USA Today and is a frequent guest contributor in print, radio, and television, including appearances on CNN, NPR, and Al Jazeera.
