At long last, welcome to Is(that)raeli?
For our first episode, we spoke with Miri Eisin about the history of immigration to Israel since its founding, the limitations of language to describe complex and often controversial realities, and, even a bit about her fascinating life!
Miri’s career began in the IDF as part of the Israeli intelligence community. For over twenty years she served as the head of the combat intelligence and the assistant to the director of Military Intelligence. After retiring from the military, Miri was appointed as the Israeli Prime Minister’s International Advisor and played an important role in the Annapolis Conference. Currently, Miri is one of Israel’s main presenters that sheds light on regional geopolitics, security related issues in the global media, and the different narratives within the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
We had a blast talking to her. Miri is incredibly thought provoking, thorough, and fun. Enjoy!
