Featuring: Ambassador (Ret.) Yoram Ettinger
As the situation across the Arab world, from protests in Egypt against the Muslim Brotherhood led regime to the continued civil war in Syria, continues to devolve after the chaos of the “Arab Spring”, what impact does it have on long-held American interests in the region? What is the impact on the American-Israel relationship, as Israel stands alone as the only U.S. ally not wracked by internal conflict and protest? Is an American preoccupation with the Palestinian-issue and the peace process still relevant in a time of rapidly shifting Middle Eastern sands?
Yoram Ettinger will answer these questions, and others, as he presents “The Impact of the Imploding Arab Street on Vital US Interests, the US-Israel Relations, and the Palestinian Issue.”
Ambassador (ret.) Ettinger is an insider on US-Israel relations, Mideast politics and overseas investments in Israel’s high tech. He is a member of the American-Israel Demographic Research Group (AIDRG), which has documented dramatic flaws behind demographic fatalism on one hand and a Jewish demographic momentum on the other hand.
He serves as a consultant to members of Israel’s Cabinet and Knesset, and regularly briefs US legislators and their staff on Israel’s contribution to vital US interests, on the root causes of international terrorism and on other issues of bilateral concern.
Ambassador (ret.) Ettinger’s Op-Eds have been published in Israel and in the US, and is a frequent guest on both on Israel’s and US’ Television and radio, and is the author of The Ettinger Report, a widely distributed email newsletter addressing issues of concerns in the Middle East. He was a speaker at the AIPAC Annual Conference.
Ambassador (ret.) Ettinger did his graduate studies at UCLA and undergraduate at UTEP – served as Minister for Congressional Affairs at Israel’s Embassy in Washington (with a rank of an ambassador), Israel’s Consul General in Houston and Director of Israel’s Government Press Office. He is the editor of Straight From The Jerusalem Cloakroom and Boardroom newsletters on issues of national security and overseas investments in Israel’s high-tech industry.
