Meyrav Wurmser
Meyrav Wurmser
Meyrav Wurmser is an expert in the Middle East and part of a neo-conservative family.

Her husband David is special assistant to Undersecretary of State John Bolton and a member of the American Enterprise Institute.

She is, along with a former Colonel in Israeli intelligence, the co-founder of a charity which monitors the Arab media for anti-semitic opinions.

Mrs Wurmser was among a group of neo-conservatives who wrote a report intended as advice for the then incoming Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in 1996.

Pentagon

The report, called "Rebuilding Zionism" called for a clean break with the Middle East peace process and talked about "rolling back Syria".

It also spoke about removing Saddam Hussein from power.

Other signatories of that report included Richard Perle, David Wurmser and Douglas Feith - who is now number three at the Pentagon.

Mrs Wurmser says that although many of the neo-conservatives are Jewish, they are also able to criticise Israel.

She also says that her allegiance is first and foremost to the United States.
