speaking for israel

During my tenure as Israel’s UN speechwriter, I saw the collapse of four Middle Eastern states, faltering Israeli-Palestinian peace talks, waves of Palestinian terrorism, stop-and-go nuclear negotiations (culminating in the Iran Deal), an attempt to push Palestinian statehood through the UN Security Council, the Palestinians’ bid to join the International Criminal Court, the kidnapping and murder of three Israeli teenagers, and fifty days of war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.


Speaking For Israel describes my time as Israel’s UN speechwriter, and offers an honest, humorous, and frank look at how the Israeli delegation—and Israel as a whole—is treated and viewed in the international body.
