Caroline Glick is the deputy managing editor of the Jerusalem Post, a senior fellow for Middle Eastern Affairs at the Center for Security Policy in Washington, DC.[1] She is the founder of Latma, a media project that satirizes the Israeli media for its 'leftwing' bias.(She also appears in some Latma videos.) She is the recipient of the Zionist Organization of America’s (ZOA) Outstanding Journalism in the Mideast award. Her journalistic achievements include a report while embedded with a US unit in Iraq for the Hebrew daily Ma'ariv announcing that she had “discovered” the first stash of WMDs.[2]

Background

Glick grew up in Chicago and graduated in 1991 from Columbia University, where she obtained a BA in political science. She moved to Israel and joined the IDF the same year. She left the IDF at the end of 1996, to become the assistant to the Director General of the Israel Antiquities Authority. In 1997-98 she served as Assistant Foreign Policy Advisor to Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu. From 1998-2000, Glick studied at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government, receiving a Master's in public policy in June 2000. From 2000 to 2002, Glick served as chief diplomatic commentator of the Israeli magazine Makor Rishon. In March 2002, Glick joined the Jerusalem Post as Deputy Managing Editor. During the 2003 invasion of Iraq, she was an embedded reporter with the US 3rd Infantry Division.[1]

Glick personally appeared in a widely criticised YouTube video produced by Latma satirising the May 2010 Gaza flotilla, shortly after a number of its participants had been killed by the IDF.[3][4]
