(NEWS) David Horowitz To Speak At Israel Event

"The American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the Congregation Shirat Hayam will be teaming up to host an annual North Shore event in honor of the opportunities and challenges that Israel faces.

The Peace Process and Iranian Proliferation: Opportunities and Challenges for Israel event will feature guest speaker, and editor-in-chief of The Jerusalem Post, David Horovitz.

Horovitz has worked for The Jerusalem Post for more than five years and has moved the newspaper to the heart of the Israeli-Diaspora discourse. He also built and made it one of the world’s most read English-language Jewish news websites.

Before his work at The Post, Horovitz was an editor and publisher of The Jerusalem Report and has written for newspapers around the world, including the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, The Irish Times, and The (London) Independent. He is a frequent interviewee on CNN, BBC, and NPR.

Horovitz has conducted landmark interviews with a succession of Israeli and international figures including all of Israel’s recent prime ministers, Presidents Barack Obama and George Bush, Tony Blair, and Vladimir Putin.

He authored 'Still Life with Bombers: Israel in the Age of Terrorism' (2002) and 'A Little Too Close to God: The Thrills and Panic of a Life in Israel' (2000). He edited and co-wrote The Jerusalem Report’s 1996 biography of Yitzhak Rabin entitled, 'Shalom, Friend: The Life and Legacy of Yitzhak Rabin.' The biography won the US National Jewish Book Award for Non-Fiction.

The event will be held at the Congregation Shirat Hayam at 55 Atlantic Avenue in Swampscott on Wednesday, Oct. 13 at 7:30 p.m. Refreshments served at the event will observe dietary laws. To RSVP, contact Ben Marchette at 617-399-2544 or" (source)
