One of the most sought after speakers at the AIPAC National Policy Conference attended this year by 14,000 people, Dr. Robert Satloff knows how to present the facts about the Middle East in an authentic, compelling way.

Those who have never heard Satloff, should not miss this man’s presentation. Those who have heard him, will want to hear him again when he visits Tidewater. Satloff is the third speaker in the Israel Today series offered by the Community Relations Council of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater and community partners.

As the executive director since 1993 and the Howard P. Berkowitz chair in US Middle East Policy at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, he is an expert on Arab and Islamic politics. Speaking Arabic, French and Hebrew, he has written extensively on the challenge of political Islam, the need to revamp US public diplomacy in the Middle East and the Arab-Israeli peace process. Well respected within the top echelons of the research community, he is an expert on Egypt, Jordan, North Africa, Palestinians, Arab and Islamic Politics, and Arab-Israeli Relations.
