Robert Magnus is smooth, suave and savvy, exceedingly affable while exuding authority – qualities one might expect from a former four-star Jewish general in the US Marine Corps.

“I was very fortunate to be one of the very few American Jews to become a four-star,” Magnus says in an interview at The Jerusalem Post offices. “After a wonderful career in the military, I have also become chairman of the board of Elbit Systems of America.... This is a marvelous company which represents this amazing country, Israel.”
