The Red Green Alliance is Coming to America
The Impact of the Islamo-Leftist Coalition on US Jewry & Foreign Policy, & Israel's National Security
In a nutshell
This document focuses on a social phenomenon and its current manifestation and significance known as the red-green alliance – the nexus between radical progressive groups to Islamists organizations, which have been ‘migrating’ from Europe to the US. In light of the rise of identity politics, the collaboration between these two streams creates a powerful social and political axis, that has an increasing influence on American foreign policy in the Middle East, as well as on the status of both Israel and the Jewish community in the US. Among others, this document explains: the radical shift in the US policy towards its traditional allies in the Middle East; the slowing momentum in the normalization process and the Abraham Accords; the hesitant American approach towards Iran; and the seemingly surprising support of many within the progressive movement in the Hamas’ struggle for Palestinian hegemony on the expanse of the seemingly more moderate Palestinian Authority.
