SUBJECT: Visit to North Korea
The great threat casting a shadow over Israel is a nuclear attack from a militant regime like Iran or Syria, or a terrorist movement.
In late 2009, I had the opportunity to lead a second delegation from the American Council for World Jewry to visit North Korea, a significant supplier of missiles and advanced technology to Iran and Syria (where in 2007 Israeli warplanes reportedly destroyed a North Korean-supplied nuclear facility). To help us complement and not contradict Washington’s broader policy, we consulted with the State Department before and after our trip.
