The Middle East and North Africa have suddenly thrust themselves once again into our headlines, as U.S. Embassies and Consulates in the region find themselves as the targets of outrage. Israeli President Benyamin Netanyahu has thrust himself into the U.S. presidential elections by upping the pressure on the U.S. to attack Iran over its nuclear research program. Meanwhile, the newly elected administration in Egypt struggles to find its way after the inspiring revolution there.

Hear an update from one of the country's leading experts on the region. Come equipped with your questions and opinions, because YOU are always an essential part of every forum.
