OREN: U.S. Should Withdraw from UN Human Rights Council

Former Israeli ambassador to the United States Michael Oren argues in Newsweek that President Donald Trump should pull the U.S. out of the United Nations Human Rights Council, saying the body has become a “racist” organization that coddles tyrants and attacks Israel.

Clinton Comes Out Against Sanders on Israel’s Use of Force During 2014 War

JERUSALEM – Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton on Sunday expressed support for Israel’s right to defend itself against Palestinian terrorism, setting herself apart from rival Bernie Sanders, who infuriated Jews and Israelis when he wrongly claimed that Israel had probably killed “more than 10,000” Palestinian civilians in the 2014 Gaza war.

EXCLUSIVE – Ex-Israeli Ambassador: Sidney Blumenthal Email to Hillary a ‘Total and Utter Fabrication’

TEL AVIV – Michael Oren, Israel’s former ambassador to the United States, has strongly denied a claim made about him in a recently released email sent to Hillary Clinton by her longtime confidant Sidney Blumenthal.

Oren: Iran the Major Obstacle in U.S.-Israel Relations Under Obama

SANTA CLARA, California — Former Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren recently addressed a packed crowd at the Jewish Community Center (JCC) in Santa Clara where he discussed his latest book Ally: My Journey Across the American-Israeli Divide and the damaged U.S.-Israel relationship under President Barack Obama’s leadership.

Obama: Getting a Bad Iran Deal at Any Price

Much has been written about just how bad the proposed Iranian nuclear deal has gotten. This outcome is hardly surprising after Israel’s former ambassador to Washington, Michael Oren, bravely published Ally, his memoir detailing Obama’s hostility towards Israel. But even without Ambassador Michael Oren’s personal testimony, there is overwhelming evidence that – on the issue most important to global security and Israel’s very existence – Obama has been, at best, reckless and, at worst, treasonous.


ADL’s Foxman Smears Michael Oren as anti-Muslim

Abraham H. Foxman, the outgoing national director of the Anti-Defamation League, has blasted Israel’s former envoy to the U.S., Michael Oren, for his comments about how President Barack Obama has deliberately harmed the U.S.-Israel relationship. Foxman is a liberal Democrat, and would rather blame Israel rather than examine the politics of his own party, so his defense of the White House is no surprise. However, he descends to the level of personally smearing Oren.

‘Ally’: Michael Oren’s Memoir to Expose Obama Administration’s Abuse of Israel

Former Israeli ambassador Michael Oren is set to release a new memoir June 23: Ally: My Journey Across the American-Israeli Divide. The book tells the story of Oren’s four years (2009-13) as Israel’s representative in Washington–and reveals just how hostile the Obama administration is towards Israel. Though he argues Obama is not anti-Israel, Oren notes that his administration did all it could to bully Israel into compliance with its hopelessly naïve new agenda in the Middle East.
