The current geopolitical reality, which leaves Israel with no existential threats at this time, presents a window of opportunity for a new strategic approach. This is a period in which the State of Israel can plan strategically and shape political processes with deep significance to its resilience and future.
Two areas that should receive priority in this regard are:
- Opening a new page in relations with the United States (given the upcoming administration change and the tensions during Obama’s tenure, and the development of threatening trends that could erode the triangular relationship: Washington – Jerusalem – the U.S. Jewish community).
- Crafting and initiating a diplomatic process that will allow Israel to maintain its Jewish identity and prevent it from becoming a binational state.
