Ilan Goldenberg is hoping to bring back insight about Israel’s recent military success countering Iran, to delve into the Palestinian conflict and to get a pulse of the nation on the eve of elections in a weeklong visit to his native land.

“I think Israel has done a pretty remarkable job of finding ways to push back without escalating to the point of a major conflict,” Goldenberg said of the country’s recent military strategy in the north.

“There’s a lot of hesitancy from the U.S. military to do anything in Syria, for example,” he said.
