One of Israel’s greatest living foreign policy experts, Ambassador Dore Gold will be speaking about his new book The Rise of Nuclear Iran: How Tehran Defies the West and about the threats posed by a resurgent Iran arming itself with weapons of mass destruction.
Gold has served as Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations and has been direct envoy to the leaders of almost a dozen Arab states. In The Rise of Nuclear Iran he brings his unique experience and knowledge to bear on the diplomatic and military dimensions of Iran’s drive for nuclear weapons. Sounding the alarm about the nuclear threat has earned Gold vociferous attacks from America’s liberal foreign policy community, which seeks to avoid a confrontation with Iran at all costs. He will be speaking about all that and more, before taking questions from the audience.
The Rise of Nuclear Iran systematically lays out the elements of Iran’s weaponization program: highly enriched nuclear material, long-range ballistic missiles, and nuclear-capable warheads. The revelation of the Qom enrichment facility and Iran’s subsequent missile tests have confirmed all of Gold’s warnings, making his book required reading for anyone who seeks to understand Tehran’s current and future plans.
Now Ambassador Gold will lay out a bleak case against the West’s “sticks and carrots” engagement policy and highlight the consequences of its likely failure: a “nuclear umbrella” for global terrorists, a Middle East dominated by Shiite hegemony, a Western hemisphere subject to Iranian threats, and a ever-present genocidal shadow over the Jewish State.
