Ambassador Dennis Ross, currently counselor at the
Washington Institute for Near East Policy, served most recently as special
assistant to President Barack Obama and senior director for the central region at the
National Security Council. His most recent book is Doomed To Succeed: The US-Israel Relationship from Truman to Obama.
