Caroline Glick is an American-born Israeli journalist, who was deputy managing editor, and now a columnist, of The Jerusalem Post; she is generally regarded as the hardest-line writer on the Post. She is also the Senior Fellow for Middle East Affairs of Center for Security Policy. Named the most prominent woman in Israel by Ma'ariv, the Tel Aviv newspaper, in 2003, named her the most prominent woman in Israel, she has been described as a hawk among Israeli journalists. [1]

Coverage of Obama Administration

After George Mitchell called for a reopening of direct Israeli-Palestinian talks in June 2009, Glick wrote, "Through their obsessive focus on Israeli building activities in Judea and Samaria, Obama and his advisers have sent regional leaders the message that they define their role here not as mediators, but as agents for the Palestinians against Israel."[2]

Education and early career

She grew up in Hyde Park, Illinois, which she describes as "ultra-liberal, and anti-Israel, and anti-American. Hyde Park's newest resident is Barack Obama. He fits right into a neighborhood I couldn't wait to leave." Two weeks after receiving a bachelor's degree in political science from Columbia University, she emigrated to Israel, where she joined the Israeli Defense Forces, serving 5.5 years, finishing as a captain. During her service, she was a core member of Israel's team negotiating with the Palestine Liberation Organization. After working in the national antiquities organization, she became a foreign policy assistant to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (1997-1998)[3] She received a master's in public policy from Harvard, and then returned to Israel, becoming chief diplomatic correspondent for the Hebrew-language Makor Rishon newspaper, and then went to work for the Jerusalem Post. She visits the United States frequently and publishes widely.
