During his mid-month visit to Denver, Yossi Klein Halevi also dropped by the Rocky to meet with the editorial board. I’m glad that I taped that meeting, since Halevi — a contributing editor at The New Republic, veteran journalist and author, and senior fellow at the Shalem Center in Jerusalem — is a one-man road map, so to speak, for Americans trying to understand the political dynamic in the Middle East. The focus of our conversation, though, was Iran, and Halevi’s keen insight into the brewing conflict with the Islamic Republic is something that everyone should digest.
Here are audio and text snippets from that meeting, beginning as the conversation did — with Halevi’s view on the Obama victory in relation to the Iran nuclear crisis.
