Dan Diker appointed as director of the World Jewish Congress

(WJC)–As the World Jewish Congress resumes its traditional role as a major player in international Jewish affairs, the volume our  activity has grown exponentially requiring additional skilled professional staff  to properly achieve our strategic objectives and programmatic goals. I am pleased to report that Dan Diker, foreign policy fellow at the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs (JCPA), has been appointed WJC Director of Strategic Affairs. Dan has been serving as a special advisor to the WJC on Middle East affairs since March 2009.

For the past five years, Dan has served as director of the Institute for Contemporary Affairs working closely with Israel’s former UN Ambassador Dore Gold in producing several major policy books  and ongoing analyses on Iran, the delegitimizaiton of Israel, Israel’s security needs in Arab-Israeli diplomacy, and the current situation in the Middle East.

Dan is executive editor and contributing author of the JCPA’s latest  policy book, “Israel’s Critical Security Needs for a Viable Peace”. He is widely recognized as a top  political and diplomatic affairs analyst, is a  frequent Middle East commentator appearing  on Israeli, Western, and Arabic television and radio news programs.

Dan will be focusing on several core issues at WJC: the Iranian threat, the delegitimization of Israel and the situation in the Middle East overall. He will also  work in close liaison with Shai Hermesh and the Executive of World Jewish Congress Israel in order to maximize cooperation, coordination and effectiveness.
