The Middle East Forum seeks a full-time Israel Director for its Israel Victory Project (IVP), which holds that a Palestinian defeat is a precondition to resolving the Arab-Israeli conflict. This means ditching the "peace process" in favor of Israel imposing its will on its enemies. It also means teaching the Palestinians the consequences of their actions – no more political process to nowhere; no more free aid; no more coddling of forces dedicated to Israel's destruction.
Responsibilities of the Position:
IVP's Israel Director runs the day-to-day activities of the project in Israel, which include:
- Working closely with members of the Knesset Israel Victory Caucus on bills to implement IVP on the policy level.
- Reaching out to decision-makers, opinion-shapers, members of the defense establishment, and Israeli social sectors to further the victory paradigm.
- Managing a local team and a budget, and fundraising.
- Coordinating with IVP's Washington Director and MEF's leadership.
- Planning and managing a variety of events furthering IVP goals.
- Recruiting writers, researchers and speakers to advance IVP in public consciousness.
- Maintain the IVP-Israel website.
- Searching for potential grantees of the Israel Victory Fund, while overseeing the work of current grantees.
- Agreement with the IVP outlook.
- Fluent reading, writing, and editing skills in both English and Hebrew.
- Connections with current and former Israeli government officials, members of the Knesset, and members of the Israeli defense establishment.
- Understanding of the nuances of the Israeli political system and body politic.
- Advanced computer literacy.
Residence in Israel.
Non-profit competitive, based on the merit of the successful candidate and resources of IVP.
