"The Sum of all Fears: Israel’s Perception of a Nuclear-Armed Iran"

Journal Article, Washington Quarterly, issue 36, volume 3

By Martin B. Malin, Executive Director, Project on Managing the Atom and Ehud Eiran, Former Associate, International Security Program, 2010–2011; Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2005–2010

President Rouhani's initiative to restart nuclear negotiations has been met with deep skepticism in Israel. Haifa University political scientist Ehud Eiran and MTA Executive Director Martin Malin suggest in the current issue of The Washington Quarterly that Israel's framing of, and response to, the Iranian nuclear program is a product of four distinct fears: existential threat, strategic risk, socio-economic erosion, and a challenge to founding principles. Understanding the sources and consequences of these fears can help policy makers avoid dangerous pitfalls and missed opportunities in their response to the current Iranian initiative.

"What Makes Alliances Last"

Op-Ed, Haaretz

By Ehud Eiran, Former Associate, International Security Program, 2010–2011; Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2005–2010

"...[W]e cannot rest on our laurels. Just as our non-democratic neighbors may become more democratic, we risk becoming less so. A host of legislative measures, attacks on academics in universities, and openly discriminatory calls by religious and political leaders suggest that our commitment to an open society that respects minority rights may be weakening."

"The Kosovo Model for Mideast Peace"

Op-Ed, The Providence Journal

By Nir Eisikovits and Ehud Eiran, Former Associate, International Security Program, 2010–2011; Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2005–2010

"...the U.N.- led negotiation about Kosovo's status failed in 2007, but the two-year process that resulted in this failure also paved the way to the outcome that many parties preferred, an independent Kosovo. The U.N.'s achievement was to put in place the basic building blocks that would make an independent Kosovo more feasible. For example, in the course of the status talks, the Kosovars agreed to guarantee certain rights to the Serb minority there, thus removing a significant hurdle for independence."

"End the Siege, but Keep Arms Out"

Op-Ed, New York Times, Room for Debate: A Running Commentary on the News

By Ehud Eiran, Former Associate, International Security Program, 2010–2011; Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2005–2010

"Israel is a world expert in border control. It can ease the suffering in Gaza, while deploying effective strategies, technologies and alliances (most of all, with Egypt) to maintain low levels of arms imports into Gaza. Any other route would not only be morally difficult; it would fail to serve Israel's strategic goals."

"What Israel Needs from Palestinians"

Op-Ed, The Providence Journal

By Nir Eisikovits and Ehud Eiran, Former Associate, International Security Program, 2010–2011; Former Research Fellow, International Security Program, 2005–2010

"The demand for recognition as articulated by Prime Minister Netanyahu leaves more to be desired. While he demanded recognition for Israel, he granted none to the Palestinians. If Israel's prime minister wanted the most basic aspects of his people's national story acknowledged, he should have reciprocated in kind."
