Peter Beinart: Can Obama and Bibi Get Aliong?
Start Date: 2/10/2013Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 2/10/2013End Time: 11:00 AM

Event Description
Since Israel’s founding in 1948 and sustained by every American and Israeli administration since Truman and Ben-Gurion, the US-Israel relationship has been bound by shared historical and cultural ties, as well as by mutual interests. The status of the US-Israel relationship is now strained under the leadership of President Barack Obama and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, despite unprecedented US military aid and loan guarantees, and the toughest sanctions in history against Iran. As President Obama begins his second term and shortly after Israelis returned to the polls in January, Peter Beinart will reflect onthe future of US-Israel relations.
Peter Beinart is author of The Crisis of Zionism (Times Books, 2012) and editor of the Daily Beast blog, Open Zion, which fosters an open and unafraid conversation about Israel, Palestine and the Jewish future. He is also Associate Professor of Journalism and Political Science at The City University of New York, Senior Political Writer for The Daily Beast-Newsweek, and a Schwartz Senior Fellow at the New America Foundation. Beinart has written for The New York Times and the Wall Street Journal, among other prestigious publications. After graduating from Yale University in 1993 and University College, Oxford with an M.Phil in International Relations, Beinart became The New Republic’s managing editor in 1995. He became senior editor in 1997, and from 1999 to 2006 served as the magazine’s editor. Beinart was a Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations from 2007 to 2009.
