The Colbert Report's Guest, Michael Oren, Israeli Ambassador to USA

Nadene Goldfoot
You know it's going to be funny.  The Colbert Report is comedy using political topics.  Michael Oren did just fine.  He had come down from Washington DC to New York City to be on this show.

Michael Oren, historian, scholar, Ivy League professor and now Israel's outstanding Ambassador to the United States, visited The Colbert Report last night, fresh from addressing the AIPAC (The American Israel Public Affairs Committee) Policy Conference on Sunday morning.  You can see the video (4:43) here:

If your time (25 min.) permits, you can view (then-)Professor/author Oren's highly engaging 2007 speech to the AIPAC Conference reviewing the deep historic and ideological ties between America and Israel dating back to the 1700s here:

"Oren was born Michael Scott Bornstein in upstate New York, the son of Marilyn (née Goldstein), a marriage and family therapist, and Lester Milton Bornstein, a hospital director."  He has served in the IDF as a paratrooper.

Ambassador Oren has long been one of the most impressive educators and advocates working to support Israel and the US-Israel relationship in many capacities.  He held up very well with Stephen Colbert and his satirical humor.
