The David Horowitz Freedom Center is pleased to announce the hiring of Caroline Glick as the Director of its Israel Security Project. Glick is a Senior Contributing Editor of The Jerusalem Post and serves as adjunct senior fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs at the Center for Security Policy in Washington, D.C. She is the author of Shackled Warrior: Israel and the Global Jihad (2008). She has degrees from Columbia University and Harvard University, served as Assistant Foreign Policy Advisor to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 1997-98, and regularly briefs senior administration officials and members of Congress on issues of joint Israeli-American concern. She lives in Jerusalem.
As the Director of the Israel Security Project Caroline will contribute regular columns to FrontPageMag.com, speak at the Center’s Restoration Weekend and West Coast Retreat and author a series of pamphlets about the Middle East “conflict.” As Freedom Center President David Horowitz commented, “Caroline dramatically increases our ability to cover events in Israel and in the region as a whole in an informed way. Her journalism has always been marked by passionate commitment and a sharp intelligence.”
David Horowitz has a reputation for the unsparing way he reveals the thinking and tactics of the liberal-progressive side of American politics. He marshals facts into patterns and patterns into indictments. His latest book, “The New Leviathan,” co-written with Jacob Laksin, lives up to that reputation.

He was born into left-wing politics, the son of two American Stalinists who, as he later wrote, “thought of themselves as secret agents.” He was an editor at the radical journal Ramparts. He was a friend of Black Panther Huey Newton. Mr. Horowitz later underwent an awakening, which he detailed in a popular biography, and came to see Newton as a terrorist, his own activism as wrong and the philosophy of his youth as a lie.

We are supposed to be entering the season of giving. But instead we seem to be mired in a season of taking away. The current administration has taken away our economic dynamism, our preeminent position in the world, and our personal freedom—including the freedom not to buy tainted products like Obamacare. The President said that he intended to radically transform America. And he is doing it. The nation we were born into is starting to look like a foreign country...
