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.”

The Freedom Center has also expanded its reach in Washington, D.C. with the new Henry M. (Scoop) Jackson and Jon Kyl Lecture on National Security.  The lecture series will be presented twice a year as a joint program of the Center for Security Policy and the David Horowitz Freedom Center.   The lecture program is named in honor of two of the U.S. Senate’s leading defenders of America’s national security: Senator Henry M. (Scoop) Jackson (D-WA), who served in the Senate from 1953 to 1983, and Senator Jon Kyl (R-AZ), who has served in the Senate from 1995 to 2012.

The first lecture was presented by Caroline Glick on Thursday, July 19th at the U.S. Capitol with introductory remarks by Senator Kyl.
