Israel’s Place in the New, Unstable Middle East

Thursday, November 14, 2013
Worsham Performance Hall, reception to follow in Worsham lobby, 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

David Horovitz examines the fresh challenges facing Israel as it seeks to maintain and widen relations with its neighbors, and protect itself against the threat posed by Iran and other Islamist forces, amid the current Middle East turmoil.  As a leading Israel journalist, he brings insights and analyses based on his daily working interactions with Israel’s political and security chiefs, but also offers the very personal perspective of a British-born immigrant, husband and father, who chose to raise his family in Israel and now has children entering the Israeli army.

David Horovitz is the founding editor of The Times of Israel, the Jerusalem-based current affairs website launched in February 2012.  Prior to that, Horovitz served for seven years as editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post, Israel’s English-language daily, where he used his “Editor’s Notes” column to promote intra-Jewish tolerance and to repeatedly urge the Israeli leadership to devote more attention to the struggle for Israeli legitimacy on “the second battlefield” – in the media, the legal arena and diplomatic forums.  Horovitz was previously editor and publisher of the award-winning newsmagazine The Jerusalem Report and has written for The New York Times and Los Angeles Times, and is a frequent interviewee on CNN, the BBC, Fox News, NPR, and other television and radio stations.
