<youtube align="right" size="tiny" caption="Peter Beinart speaks to a gathering of Jewish leaders about his NYRB article">svs7L-OUbks</youtube> Peter Beinart is the former editor of The New Republic. He was a leading cheerleader for the Iraq war, opening up the magazine's pages to pro-war neoconseratives. A liberal Zionist himself, he wrote a highly critical article about the American Jewish establishment in the New York Review of Books in 2010 arguing it was increasingly shifting to the right for both Jews and Israel.[1]
