The Middle East Through Russian-Israeli Eyes

Ksenia Svetlova’s story is gripping: she moved to Israel as a teen, grew up to become a journalist, and eventually served as a Member of Knesset. In her book: “Reporting the Middle East on High Heels,” Ksenia brings her story to her beat, giving readers an over-her-shoulder view of the Middle East from Egypt, Tunisia, Syria, Lebanon, Libya, to the Palestinians areas much closer to home.

This episode is part of a series made possible by the German Government which examines Israel’s relationship with the EU and European countries.

    Your interview with Ksenia Svetlova was quite thought provoking and shone a hopeful light on the future of the people that make up the middle east. What I believe what I was hearing is that Ksenia through her Journalism is able to discover the cracks in dogma that allows the light to shine through. Great program!
