"Now More Than Ever": Michael Oren on the US-Israeli Alliance
Israel's ambassador to the US Michael Oren argues that the realists are wrong and that the US needs Israel now more than ever. By the way, Oren wasn't always an ambassador. He's also a former paratrooper, a historian, and a Princeton PhD in Near Eastern Studies. If you haven't read his (best-selling!) books Six Days of War (2002) and Power, Faith, and Fantasy: the United States in the Middle East 1776-2006 (2007), they're worth your time.
