Carmi Gillon: Israel and the Dangers Ahead
Event Date and Time:
October 19 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
After 25 years in the Israeli Foreign Service — negotiating with the Palestinians, advising the Minister of Foreign Affairs and serving at the helm of Israel’s largest diplomatic mission worldwide, New York —Ambassador Ido Aharoni knows almost everyone who is anyone.
Now, he’s invited five of Israel’s most fascinating people to chat about the future of the country. Hear candid dialogues with Israel’s movers and shakers — and add your questions to the mix.
The former head of the Shin Bet, Israel’s security service, doesn’t pretend that he’s not worried about his country’s future. Just days before the February election, Carmi Gillon appeared in a video with five other former heads of the Shin Bet and the Mossad to warn that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu posed a serious risk to Israel’s security. And he hasn’t been shy about predicting that the Trump plan will trigger a perilous right-wing messianic ideology.
He’ll share those and other concerns in a fascinating discussion with Ambassador Ido Aharoni.
