Speaker Al Biegel will highlight the political-military divide between Israel and Iran in Syria, Gaza, and Lebanon.  The talk will cover how concerns about Iranian, Hezbollah, Hamas, and other proxy threats to Israeli positions and communities in the Golan Heights and the northern border with Lebanon, coupled with the escalation of conflict in Gaza, has led to determined Israeli political-military countermeasures. 

Mr. Biegel has more than 50 years of combined military and intelligence service.  After serving 26 years with the US Army, including several tours of combat duty in Vietnam, he served an additional 25 years with the Intelligence Community.
