On this special wartime episode of our podcast, Conversations with B’nai B’rith, B’nai B’rith CEO Dan Mariaschin speaks with Mark Regev, former Israeli Ambassador to the UK and current Senior Advisor to the Prime Minister of Israel, about where Israel’s defensive war stands one month after the deadliest attack on Jews since the Holocaust.
Ambassador Regev addresses the increasing calls for “pauses” and a “ceasefire” in Israel’s defensive war, the global spike in anti-Semitism and lack of empathy for Israelis and Jews since October 7th, and the media’s near abandonment of fair and objective reporting.
𝗔𝗯𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗠𝗮𝗿𝗸 𝗥𝗲𝗴𝗲𝘃 Ambassador Mark Regev is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s Senior Advisor for Foreign Affairs and International Communications. Prior to this appointment, he served as Israel’s Ambassador to the United Kingdom from 2016-2020 and as the Prime Minister’s Advisor and International Spokesperson from 2007-2016, during which he became one of Israel’s most prominent voices in the English-speaking world.
𝗔 𝗡𝗼𝘁𝗲 𝘁𝗼 𝗢𝘂𝗿 𝗩𝗶𝗲𝘄𝗲𝗿𝘀 This is the first program we’re sharing since October 7th, when Hamas terrorists murdered 1,400 Israelis and kidnapped more than 240 others. As Israel continues to defend itself, our hearts are with our brothers and sisters in Israel who were robbed of what little sense of security they had, and with Jewish communities around the world who are faced with unfathomable spikes in anti-Semitism. May there be lasting peace for Israel. Am Yisrael Chai.
