The Executive Director of the American Jewish Committee (AJC), David Harris, delivered a lecture, “The U.S. Debate on Israel: An Insider’s Perspective,” before a standing-room only crowd at the prestigious Council on Foreign Relations (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Auswärtige Politik) in Berlin.
The council had invited David Harris to offer AJC’s views after it hosted Professors Walt and Mearsheimer last month. During a two-day visit to Berlin, David Harris met with German Foreign Ministry officials, the U.S. and Israeli ambassadors, and German parliamentarians. He was invited to speak to students at the Hertie School of Governance, an elite graduate school of public policy, and the Ebert Foundation, the Social Democratic Party’s think tank.
