I attended a pretty interesting talk yesterday at the JCAA. Natan Sharansky was interviewed by Glenn Frankel.

The topics were varied. From his time in the Gulag, his early struggles fighting for human rights as a refusenik, the founding and disolution of his Yisrael B’Aliyah political party, the free world’s betrayal of their own principles with their support of a dictatorship within the PA, his criticism of HRW for having become a biased political entity, etc.

If I can find a good article on what was covered I will update this post.
