Between a Rocket and a Hard Place
Israel's Standing in the Swiftly Changing Middle East
with guest speaker Herb Keinon, Diplomatic Correspondent for The Jerusalem Post.
Keinon is responsible for covering the prime minister and the foreign minister, often traveling with the Prime Minister on his trips abroad. He has followed Ehud Barak to Paris, Ariel Sharon to Crawford, Texas, Ehud Olmert to Annapolis, and Binyamin Netanyahu to Washington. As such, Keinon has up-close knowledge and an intimate perspective of the country's political, diplomatic and strategic challenges - from Hamas to Hizbullah, Kadima to Likud.
Keinon wrote a book published in 2009 – Lone Soldiers: Israel's Defenders from Around the World - which tells the tale of young men and women from the Diaspora who volunteer to serve in the Israeli army.
