Retired Ambassador Yoram Ettinger, an expert on US-Israel relations and Middle East Affairs, said that the US disengagement from Afghanistan was not similar to the U.S. exit from Vietnam in 1975, since this withdrawal didn’t end a conflict, but rather would be a “tailwind” for Islamic terrorism, particularly against Washington’s allies in the Middle East. Ettinger told reporter Arieh O’Sullivan that Prime Minister Naftali Bennett in his upcoming visit to Washington to meet with US President Joe Biden should also meet with other US leaders in the capitol.
