Peter Beinart and Jonathan Freedland on Israel and the Diaspora

Peter Beinart
Jonathan Freedland

 

Voices have the power to sway public opinion and perhaps even determine policies. Peter Beinart, who writes for The Atlantic and Haaretz, and The Guardian’s Jonathan Freedland consider how the Jewish Diaspora voice might exert a more meaningful influence on the strategies of Israel’s decision-makers.

Jonathan Freedland is The Guardian’s executive editor and a weekly columnist. He currently presents BBC Radio 4's The Long View. The recipient of the 2014 Orwell Prize, he writes thrillers under the nom de plume, Sam Bourne.

Peter Beinart teaches journalism and political science at New York’s City University. He is a senior columnist at Haaretz, a CNN commentator and a senior fellow at The New America Foundation. His books include The Crisis of Zionism.

This event is not included in the Kings Place multibuy ticket offer.
