Writing in the "Jerusalem Strategic Tribune," prominent journalist Ehu Yaari underscored that "the survival of the Assad regime, closely allied with Iran, amounts to nothing short of an Israeli strategic failure." By emphasizing potential security threats to Israel, the notion of an Israeli strategic failure provoked a debate among scholars and officials in Israel, the United States, and some Arab countries about whether or not Israel and the United States had lost the Syrian civil war and, by extension the Jerusalem (and Washington)-Tehran shadow and intelligence warfare. 
In this special lecture, Dr. Rabil, basing his views on an intimate knowledge of the area, close intellectual exchanges with many observers from various Middle Eastern countries, and constant surveillance of the developing dynamics in Syria and the region, will trace and contextualize Washington and Jerusalem's policies, outlooks and positions regarding Syria and Iran within the framework of Israel-Iran, U.S.-Syria, Israel-Russia, and Iran-Russia relations.
