On Tuesday, Jeffrey Goldberg visited the Lowy Institute, where we recorded this discussion with our Executive Director Michael Fullilove.

Jeffrey Goldberg is a national correspondent for The Atlantic, writing primarily on Arab and Israeli politics. He has won numerous awards, including the National Magazine Award for reporting during his time at The New Yorker. Goldberg is also the author of Prisoners: A Muslim and a Jew Across the Middle East Divide.

In the above conversation Goldberg comments on the recent conflict between Israel and Hamas (0.21), considers what impact Israel's Iron Dome missile defence system had on that conflict (1.24) and Iran's future nuclear capability (2.03). The discussion also traverses the likelihood of a US military response to a nuclear Iran (4.14) and Democrat-Republican differences on US foreign policy in the Middle East (6.34).

Goldberg's influence on US policy debates about these issues is significant; this is a must-watch.
