Former White House coordinator on the Middle East Dennis Ross will discuss the impact on the region of a Trump presidency when he addresses a capacity audience in London as part of a series of Jewish News-We Believe in Israel events.
The diplomat, who was the point man on the Middle East in the Bill Clinton administration, was more recently an advisor to both President Obama and Hillary Clinton when she was Secretary of State.
Ross will be in conversation with BICOM chief executive James Sorene during the 30 November event, organised together with BICOM and JW3 and in partnership with the Britain-Israel Alliance.
Ross will also be among the speakers at the Jewish News-BICOM policy conference in Westminster that day, when he will be joined by figures including Home Secretary Amber Rudd, Middle East Minister Tobias Ellwood, Israel’s Leader of the Opposition Isaac Herzog and Michael Oren, deputy minister for public diplomacy in Benjamin Netanyahu’s office.
Oren, the immediate past ambassador to Washington, will also address a Jewish News-We Believe in Israel grassroots event in Glasgow on 1 December.
We Believe in Israel director Luke Akehurst said: “In addition to a top-level policy conference, we wanted to make sure people in the community got to hear the latest insights from these impressive speakers, so I am delighted we are holding grassroots events around the country.”
