David Horovitz is one of the leading intellectuals and political analysts in all of Israel. That’s what Jay says at the top of this podcast. Later, Horovitz denies the intellectual part, but you can judge for yourself.
An Anglo-Israeli, born in London, Horovitz is the founding editor of the Times of Israel. He was the editor of the Jerusalem Post. He is the author of several books.
With him, Jay covers a lot of ground. Is Israel really under an existential threat? What about Obama’s deal with Iran? Do the Palestinians want to coexist? Why did you move to Israel? Do Israelis look askance at Jews who do not make that move? Can Israel tackle Iran militarily? What is the nature of the new European anti-Semitism? Same as the old? What about anti-Semitism on the Auld Sod, Britain? What do you make of Netanyahu? Have you become more conservative? What do you wish people, particularly Americans, could know?
