I lecture around the UK and the USA on the 4000 years of the history and politics of the Middle East, from the long journey of the Hebrews to become the Jewish nation, from Abraham, Joseph and Egypt, the Exodus, to the establishment of the Jewish state in 1948. This includes the 100-years of the Israeli/Arab/Palestinian conflict, the Holy Land and the Jewish world.
I served three years as a combat fighter in commando unit of the Israeli army and played a crucial part during the Intifada (uprising) in the West Bank, and during the Lebanon War of 1982, where explosives damaged my respiratory system.
I worked as a journalist for 24 years, as a reporter, editor and columnist, covering wars and social issues around the Middle East, and as a journalist researcher/Investigator for several Israeli national newspapers as well as for radio and television.
I have a Master’s degree in History and Political Science from Tel Aviv University.
