The Interview: Peter Beinart Defends His Broadside

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.
