About the Ettinger Report
The Ettinger Report is a politically-incorrect, fact-based weekly column – challenging conventional wisdom – produced by Ambassador (ret.) Yoram Ettinger, enhancing education on US-Israel relations, Middle East affairs, the Palestinian issue, Jewish-Arab demographics, the threat of Iran’s Ayatollahs, etc.
The Ettinger Report is based on the old Texas wisdom: “Sometimes even a blade of grass can deflect a cannon ball”.
Yoram has accumulated over 40 year-experience as a researcher, diplomat, writer, lecturer and consultant to Israeli and US legislators and their staffers. His weekly columns on US-Israel relations and Middle East affairs are disseminated to 10,000 movers & shakers in the US and 5,000 in Israel.
Yoram interacts on a daily basis – via briefings, consulting, speaking engagements and media interviews – with policy-makers, legislators and staffers, journalists, professors & students, Christian and Jewish clergy, political clubs, civic organizations, chambers of commerce, businessmen and women, etc.
He is co-founder of the America-Israel Demographic Research Group, which has documented a 1 million gap in the number of Arabs in Judea & Samaria, refuting the myth of “Arab demographic time bomb” and documenting unprecedented Jewish demographic tailwind.
Yoram served as Minister for Congressional Affairs – with the rank of Ambassador – at Israel’s Embassy in Washington, DC. (1989-1992); Director of Israel’s Government Press Office, coordinating relations with overseas journalists (1988-1989); Israel’s Consul General to the Southwestern USA, based in Houston, Texas (1985-1988); the editor of the “Contemporary Mideast Backgrounder,” which was disseminated to thousands of policy-makers and public opinion molders in Hebrew, English, Spanish, French and German (1976-1985); Deputy Director of the US Cultural Center in Jerusalem (1975-1976); information officer at Israel’s Consulate General in Los Angeles (1971-1973); the Alabama Trade Representative in Israel (1997-2000).
Yoram acquired his B.A. in Business Administration at the University of Texas, El Paso (1969), MS in International Management at UCLA (1971) and CPA certificate (1970).
Most importantly, Yoram is proudly married to Ora with three daughters, Tal (married to Shulik), Adi and Deganit and four grandchildren – Noga, Roni, Guy and Amitai (and counting).
