Welcome to my blog.

I am an independent Middle East Strategic Intelligence Analyst, and lecturer specializing in the current affairs of the Arab and Muslim world and their impact on Israel and the region.

I am the Fellow of Intelligence and Middle East Affairs for the Eisenhower Institute Eisenhower Institute, where among other responsibilities I leads a year-long program entitled “Inside the Middle East – Intelligence Perspectives,” designed to ensure that the next generation to be in positions of influence in the United States will have a more intimate understanding of the Middle East and will apply methods of critical thinking regarding Middle East Affairs in a way that will result in a more accurate reading the Middle East reality and which will better serve the West’s interest.

My blog offers you insight into my analysis of what goes on in our region and its impact here and globally.

As a former Senior Israeli Official on Arab Affairs I spent most of my intelligence career in Arab speaking areas. My work today, including all the articles I publish, is based on a wide variety of Arabic sources which you will see referenced throughout my articles. My blog, like my briefings and tours do not tell you what you can read in the news yourself – subscribe to my blog to be sure to get the story behind the story.

I hope you will find my analysis and commentary thought-provoking. I want your feedback – respond by commenting or email me directly.

Please be in touch if you would like to consider booking me for an event in Israel or anywhere in the world.

And next time you’re in Israel be sure and be in touch with me as you’re planning so you can include an Intelligence Briefing or an Intelligence Tour while you’re on the ground in Israel.

Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
