Empire – Diplomacy, Obama and the Middle East – YouTube

As the recent Arab League summit in Doha showed, new alignments and new cartographies of power are being drawn across the Middle East– a region in flux that is underscoring the relative decline of one-time US domination. With Israel scrambling to maintain its assumed nuclear and strategic pre-eminence, and the US keen to retain some authority in a Middle East where it dithered in responding to the uprisings of the Arab Spring, as it has on the crisis in Syria, Empire unpacks the rhetoric of Obama’s Israeli visit and dissects the real issues that the US President, Israel and the Arab world, urgently need to address.
