I’m currently scheduling events for the spring and summer of 2015. If you’d like to get in touch about scheduling an event, please contact me here.
Here are a few of the current topics that I can discuss:
* Netanyahu’s Speech to Congress: A Growing Partisan Political Divide on Israel?
* The “Nuclear Option”: Palestine’s Membership in the International Criminal Court
* What Comes Next If the Palestinian Authority Dissolves?
* Will President Obama Get Tough on Israel in His Remaining Time in Office?
Here’s a video from my fall 2014 speaking tour, which focused on Israel’s attack on the Gaza Strip and the breakdown of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations.
Here’s a brief bio:
Josh Ruebner is the author of Shattered Hopes: Obama’s Failure to Broker Israeli-Palestinian Peace (Verso Books, 2013).
He is the Policy Director of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, a national coalition of more than 400 organizations working to end U.S. support for Israel’s illegal 47-year military occupation of the Palestinian West Bank, East Jerusalem, and Gaza Strip, and to change U.S. policy toward Israel and the Palestinians to support human rights, international law, and equality.
Ruebner is a former Analyst in Middle East Affairs at Congressional Research Service, a federal government agency providing Members of Congress with policy analysis. He holds a graduate degree in International Affairs from Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies in Washington, DC.
Ruebner’s analysis and commentary on U.S. policy toward the Middle East appear frequently in media such as NBC, ABC Nightline, CSPAN, Al Jazeera, USA Today, Los Angeles Times, The Hill, Detroit Free Press, Huffington Post, Middle East Report, and more.
