Ben Caspit talks this week to former Israeli ambassador to Washington Michael Oren, a long-time expert on Israel-US relations. Oren speaks about  the nomination of Robert Malley as the new American special envoy to Iran, noting that "his appointment to the very sensitive position is not likely to dispel Israeli concerns or ease Israeli anxieties." His advice to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is for the Israeli political and defense echelons to present a unified front against renewal of the deal. "We must tell Washington: if you renew the JCPOA, you will be putting Israel and the Middle East on war footing."
