Roy Keidar is CEO of the Reut Institute an Israeli think tank known for arguing that 'delegitimization' is a key political threat to the country and should be vigourously countered.[1]

According to his Reut biography, he previously worked for seven years as "a senior member of the National Security Council of the Prime Minister's Office" serving under Ehud Olmert, Ariel Sharon and Benjamin Netanyahu and prior to this was an officer in the IDF.[2]

It also states that he played "a significant role" in several strategic Israeli government decisions of the past decade including "delicate national security issues such as the security barrier, the Disengagement Plan, Operation Cast Lead, the Gilad Shalit abduction, strategic foreign relations and internal issues, such as immigration and the Negev Bedouins".[3]
