Meir Dagan, the former director of the Mossad who underwent an emergency liver
transplant in Belarus last year, confirmed on Tuesday that he would address The
Jerusalem Post’s second annual conference in New York on April 28.
68, said he is now in good health following his recuperation at Tel Aviv
Sourasky Medical Center’s Ichilov Hospital upon his return to Israel at the end
of October. His attendance at the conference will be his first public appearance
since the operation.
Among the other speakers at the daylong conference
will be former prime minister Ehud Olmert, Energy and Water Minister Silvan
Shalom, International Relations Minister Yuval Steinitz, Ambassador to the US
Michael Oren, former US ambassador to the UN John Bolton, former IDF Military
Intelligence head Amos Yadlin and Jerusalem Post
senior contributing editor
Caroline B. Glick.
Three panel discussions will take place in the
afternoon – on the two-state solution, the strategic threats facing the Jewish
state, and Israel’s energy potential.

for the Zionist Dream,” created enormous media interest last year when it was
attended by some 1,000 people, including news teams from across the United
States and Israel. It will be moderated again this year by Jerusalem Post
