JINSA National Leadership Webinar:

Israel’s Iron Dome

Funding for Israel’s Iron Dome’s quick passage has been blocked in the U.S. Senate, even after the House voted near-unanimously to replenish the missile defense system. It is essential that this bipartisan legislation – which is urgently needed for Israel’s national security – be approved. As JINSA President Michael Makovsky and Rep. August Pfluger (R-TX) explained in a recent Newsweek op-ed, Iron Dome is necessary to promote peace and protect Israeli and Palestinian civilians alike.

Please join IDF MG (ret.) Yaacov Ayish and Lieutenant General Henry Obering, USAF (ret.) to discuss the military and strategic importance of Iron Dome and the benefits that it provides to Israel, Palestinians, and America.

This webinar will be moderated by JINSA Vice President of Policy Blaise Misztal.

Tuesday, October 19 – 11:00am EDT
