Former Israeli Ambassador the the U.S., Michael Oren, has written a truly brilliant memoir of his time in that post at exactly the right time. While the streets of Tehran teem with those calling for Death to America and Death to the Jews, Oren’s insider’s account of the pressures faced by the Middle East’s lone democracy serves as a counterbalance to those that are championing the Iranian nuclear deal.

Joining in on this conversation with Milt and Oren is our friend Dr. Charles Lipson of the University of Chicago.

An interesting anecdote from this interview: Oren conducted it entirely while on the floor of the Knesset, as they’d been called to vote beginning after midnight in Jerusalem.
