In July 2010, Israel’s Ambassador to the U.S., Michael Oren, was interviewed at the Aspen Ideas Festival. The event’s organizers describe it as “a discussion of some of the significant ideas and issues that touch all parts of our society as found in the arts, science, culture, religion, philosophy, economics, and politics.”
Demonstrating both sharp wit and a mature sense of humor, Oren, a historian by training, engaged in this broad-spectrum, hour-long dialogue of issues with The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg. Don’t miss Oren’s hard-hitting response at the end to allegations that Israel has a habit of failing to show proper “restraint” in its response to acts of terrorism perpetrated against it.
