A Conversation with Ambassador Ron Dermer

March 8, 2018

Arguably, when it comes to Ambassadors to the United States, the one representing Israel is best known to most Americans—for various reasons. Ron Dermer has risen to the challenge as an articulate and passionate defender of the Jewish state. And given the always fluid and frenetic events of the Middle East, his diplomatic skills have been put to the test.

Audience joined FOLCS and the 92Y for a wide-ranging conversation with Ambassador Dermer on such topics as the new Trump administration and its relationship with Israel, the impending American embassy move to Jerusalem, reviving the peace process, continued Palestinian incitement, Israeli settlements, the deteriorating situation in Gaza, and the recent Iranian drone launching from Syria.
