As the Abu Dhabi crown prince, Mohammed bin Zayed, continues to forge new directions for the UAE, the “Arab Digest Podcast” explores his relationship with Israel in light of the Gaza conflict. It also looks at how enmity with Qatar drives his strategy of promoting counterrevolution, and how he is pivoting to China while moving the United Arab Emirates away from its traditional relationship with the US.
