December has been a good month in the life of The Jerusalem Post Deputy Managing Editor Caroline Glick, whose columns have received wide attention in Israel and abroad. Glick was in New York this past weekend to receive the prestigious Ben Hecht Award for Outstanding Journalism in the Mideast from the Zionist Organization of America. The award was presented at the ZOA's annual Louis Brandeis Award dinner. Speakers included US Ambassador to the UN John Bolton, ZOA National President Mort Klein and Glick, who is as passionate as a speaker as she is a writer - and is in high demand on the global lecture circuit. Meanwhile, on the home front, Glick was selected by Israel's Media Watch, headed by Israel's former ambassador to the US Zalman Shoval, to receive the Abramovich Prize for critical journalism. Co-recipient of the prize is Channel 10's Yinon Magal. Both journalists were singled out for their work monitoring the Israeli media's treatment of disengagement, which, they argued, was willingly recruited into the service of Ariel Sharon. Glick writes and speaks from the position of an insider. Before making a career in journalism, as an officer in the IDF Glick served as the coordinator of negotiations with the Palestinian Authority, and later served as assistant foreign policy adviser to prime minister Binyamin Netanyahu. Her writings have been published in The Wall Street Journal, National Review, the Boston Globe, the Chicago Sun Times, the Washington Times, Ma'ariv, Makor Rishon and other publications. She has appeared on MSNBC, FOX and all of Israel's major television channels. Glick was the first Israeli journalist reporting from the front lines in Iraq and was embedded with the US infantry troops during the invasion. She is a senior researcher at the IDF Operational Theory Research Institute and a lecturer in tactical warfare at IDF's Command and Staff College. She is also a senior fellow at the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC. Glick came on aliya in 1991 after graduating from Columbia and later received a masters in public policy from Harvard's Kennedy School of Government.
