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.
Dagan, 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.
The conference, titled “Fighting 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 editor-in-chief Steve Linde and held at the Marriott Marquis in Times Square.
