Turkey’s Dangerous Ottoman Nostalgia
With Burak Bekdil. The Ottoman Empire ended in 1923, but for neo-Ottomans like Turkey’s President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan, the regime has merely been in a long slumber. From meddling in the Balkans to anti-Zionism to active roles in the Syrian and Libyan civil wars to drilling in Cypriot waters, Erdoğan shows how he longs for 1820 rather than 2020. Burak Bekdil outlines Erdoğan’s neo-Ottoman motivations, the threats it poses, and how to counter it.

Is the Love Affair Between Jews and the University Over?
With Liel Leibovitz, Tablet Magazine. The university has long had a central place in American Jewish life and Jewish aspiration. Ideological conformity has replaced open inquiry; the high-tech economy has made the credentials of the college increasingly obsolete; and, for Jews, the atmosphere has become toxic for those who don’t feel like hiding their support for Israel or their traditional beliefs. | Register HERE

Jews Without Apology: Some Lessons from My Years at Harvard
With Ruth Wisse, Harvard University (emeritus) and The Tikvah Fund. The campus culture has inordinately focused on narratives of victimhood. Jews have certainly suffered their share of mistreatment, and anti-Semitism seems to be alive and well. But the only true and enduring recipe for Jewish flourishing—in college and beyond—is Jewish self-confidence: the educated belief that being a Jew and being a Zionist is never a reason to apologize. | Register HERE
