Shalom, I am Professor Danny Ayalon, former Israeli Ambassador to the United States. Ask away!
I am Danny Ayalon, Israeli diplomat and politician, and the Rennert Visiting Professor of Foreign Policy Studies at Yeshiva University.
I have served in Israel’s Foreign Service for over 20 years, most recently as deputy foreign minister in 2012. During my career, I have served as political adviser to three different prime ministers, Ehud Barak, Benjamin Netanyahu and Ariel Sharon, and in 2002, I was appointed Israel’s ambassador to the United States.
I recently founded The Truth About Israel, a non-profit that educates the public about the core values of the state of Israel and combats delegitimization efforts, BDS and incitement against Israel. Ask me anything on any topic, from Mideast peace process negotiations and Israeli foreign and domestic policies to the Arab Spring, Syrian civil war, Iran, or Jewish education or my experience teaching at Yeshiva University. My IAMA is scheduled for Noon Eastern.
Thank you for partaking in this dialogue. I appreciate the ability to engage the community and hope that we can meet soon, either in person or again online.
