Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) September 4, 2008
Professor Paul Eidelberg, a prominent Mideast scholar and the founder of the Jerusalem-based think tank The Foundation for Constitutional Democracy in the Middle East, has signed on with PoliticalMavens.com, a popular political news and commentary blog to provide regular commentary. Eidelberg, the author of a number of books including "Jewish Statesmanship: Lest Israel Fall" and "The Myth of Israeli Democracy" as well as books about the American Presidency, plans to focus his writing on Mideast policy and American and Israeli politics.
Binyamin L. Jolkovsky, founder and Executive Editor of Political Mavens said of the new relationship:
"We are excited to have Prof. Eidelberg as a contributor to our blog. Paul brings a wealth of (inside Israel) experience to the table. He has a genuine concern for the future of our government and of western civilization and a unique perspective on international relations, especially those concerning the US and Israel. More importantly, his passion on this topic drives him to action. Political Mavens.com has always supported writers who pursue a positive change in their government."
Eidelberg's first blog addresses Iran's continuing ambition to obtain nuclear weapons and the tension building between Israel and America as they sort through the unclear intentions of Iran and its looming threat of attack.
In addition to his writings on Political Mavens, the 80-year old Eidelberg has recently launched his own website, where his articles and links to recent media appearances are available.
"Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks?" laughed Eidelberg. "I'm excited to begin a new career as a blogger. The technology may have changed, but my passion for writing about politics and international issues remains the same. I'm grateful to Political Mavens and Binyamin for the opportunity.
Eidelberg has also been an in demand guest in U.S. media recently, having just completed radio interviews with The Right Balance, hosted Greg Allen, and Bott Radio's Friday Encounters with host Jim Jenkins.
Eidelberg served as an officer in the United States Air Force and earned his doctoral degree at the University of Chicago. Before immigrating to Israel in 1976, he authored the trilogy The Philosophy of The American, On the Silence of the Declaration of Independence, and A Discourse on Statesmanship. He is known as one of the most prolific and creative writers in the English language in Israel and his writings, often translated into Russian and Hebrew, have been adopted by various political parties and NGO's.
Eidelberg, who resides in Jerusalem, is available for media interviews concerning the presidential election campaign and Middle East related issues.
