Iranian Nuclear Proliferation: Potential Worldwide Effects – A Happy Hour & Expert Discussion

The Israel Project (TIP) was pleased to partner with United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI) for an important discussion about Iran’s nuclear ambitions. The program focused on Iranian nuclear proliferation and the potential effect this would have across the Middle East and throughout the world.

The evening started with an open bar in the Hunt Room of the Fairfax Hotel. At 6:30 p.m., a conversation with Ambassador Kristen Silverberg began. Following the discussion, we invited participants to join TIP and Ambassador Silverberg for a happy hour with hors d’oeuvres and an open bar.
