MK Barlev at JCCNV 4/2/14

On April 1st and 2nd the Israel Action center co-sponsored back to back events at Adat Shalom Reconstructionist Congregation and the JCC of Nortern Virginia with featured speaker Israeli Member of Knesset Omer Barlev. Before joining the 19th Knesset as a member of the Israel's Labor Party, MK Barlev carried out a long and decorated military career. Since his retirement from the military in 1994, MK Barlev ran several successful Israeli high-tech companies and founded "Acharai," an organization dedicated to the empowerment of underprivileged and marginalized youth. As an MK, Barlev sits on the Committee of Foreign and Military Affairs and is the Labor Party's point person on issues of defense and Middle East peace. Barlev has recently published his own political initiative titled "It's In Our Hands." MK Barlev spoke about how to ensure that Israel remains a strong independent and secure Jewish state.

"Israel's paramount goal is that it will be a secure democratic Jewish state with a clear Jewish majority. The second goal is ending the conflict, the result of which will be a Palestinian state."

"Israel's security today has never been so good since the establishment of Israel."

"Israel is strong. This is the time to take a calculated risk, while being prepared for a worst case scenario."

"Israel must be active about its own future, not passive."

"Any agreement that Netanyahu will bring will get widely supported by the Israelis."
