The Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs will host a Director's Lunch with Major General Ido Nehushtan, former Commander in Chief of the Israeli Air Force, in the Belfer Center Library (L369).

General Nehushtan, former Commander in Chief of the Israeli Air Force (2008-12), told the Jerusalem Post in May of this year that the Israel Air Force is prepared for the many missions and threats it faces in the Middle East, including a possible operation against Iran’s nuclear facilities.

In a 2008 paper for the Jerusalem Center for Public Policy Nehushtan wrote that the three primary generators of Middle East radicalism and extremism are Iran’s “Shia Crescent,” the Muslim Brotherhood, and the Global Jihad.

“Iran’s nuclearization process is bringing a new dimension to the conflict. The process by itself is increasing regional fears.”
[Maj.-Gen. Ido Nehushtan, March 16, 2008]

General Nehushtan will examine Israel’s strategic dilemmas in a Middle East that has changed even more rapidly since 2008.  

Nehushtan graduated with honours from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, where he studied Mathematics and Computer Science and earned an MBA from the Kellogg-Recanati International Executive MBA Program, a joint program of Tel Aviv University, and Northwestern University, Chicago. He is also a graduate of Harvard University's Advanced Management Program. In April 2012, he was awarded the Legion of Merit by U.S. Air Force Commander Gen. Norton Schwartz during a ceremony in Washington.
