Dore Gold

Ambassador Dore Gold is President of the Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs. In June 2015, Dore Gold left the Jerusalem Center, which he had led since 2000, to serve as Director General of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, appointed by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. During his tenure at the Foreign Ministry, until October 2016, Ambassador Gold advanced policies that strengthened Israel on a global level – from Africa and Asia to the Mideast and the Western world.

Ambassador Gold was the eleventh Permanent Representative of Israel to the United Nations (1997-1999). In January 2014, he was appointed as an external advisor on international issues to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. During Prime Minister Netanyahu’s first term, in his capacity as foreign policy advisor, Amb. Gold served as an envoy to the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, Jordan, and the Gulf States. He also served as an advisor to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon.

Ambassador Gold was a member of the Israeli delegation at the Wye River negotiations between Israel and the PLO. He negotiated the Note for the Record, which supplemented the 1997 Hebron Protocol, and in 1999 concluded the negotiations with the U.S., Lebanon, Syria, and France for the creation of the Monitoring Group for Southern Lebanon. In 1991, he served as an advisor to the Israeli delegation to the Madrid Peace Conference. From 1985 to 1996, he was a senior research associate at the Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies at Tel Aviv University, where he was Director of the U.S. Foreign and Defense Policy Project. Dr. Gold received his B.A. (’75), M.A. (’76), and Ph.D. (’84) from Columbia University, where he specialized in the Middle East and in international law.

Ambassador Gold has written books and articles on the Middle East, including The Rise of Nuclear Iran: How Tehran Defies the West (Regnery, 2009), The Fight for Jerusalem: Radical Islam, the West, and the Future of the Holy City (Regnery, 2007), Tower of Babble: How the United Nations Has Fueled Global Chaos (Crown, 2004), Hatred’s Kingdom: How Saudi Arabia Supports the New Global Terrorism (Regnery, 2003), and U.S. Military Strategy in the Middle East (Tel Aviv: Ministry of Defense Publications, 1993). His articles have appeared in Asahi Shinbun, Commentary, Daily Telegraph, Die Zeit, Ha’aretz, Jerusalem Post, Le Monde, The New York Times, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal

He lives in Jerusalem with his wife, Ofra, their children and grandchildren.
