The Interview: Peter Beinart Defends His Broadside

Podcast

Published May 25, 2010.

Peter Beinart, a journalism professor and the author of the forthcoming book “The Icarus Syndrome: A History of American Hubris,” visited the Forward studio to discuss his recent New York Review of Books essay. In the piece, he faults Israel’s government and American Jewish leaders for the alienation from Israel that many young American Jews experience. In this podcast, Larry Cohler-Esses, the Forward’s news editor, asks Beinart about his motivations for publishing the essay, why he thinks it struck a nerve in the blogosphere and whether he believes a two-state solution remains feasible.
