Michigan Matters: Middle East Issues Discussion

By CBS 62 staff

Roey Gilad, Consulate General of Israel to the Midwest, and Osama Siblani, publisher of The Arab American News, will tape “Michigan Matters” this week to talk about issues simmering in the Middle East.

If you have a question to suggest for one or both men, post a comment below and we might ask it of the leaders.

About The Guests

During his 23 year tenure with Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Gilad has served in various positions outside of Israel including the United Kingdom, the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, and Kenya. The Consul General was head of the Political Affairs Department in Israel’s Embassy in London; media spokesperson in Israel’s Embassy in Amman, and the second secretary in Nairobi during his first posting.

Born in Beirut, Lebanon in 1955, Siblani came to the United States in 1976 to pursue his education. He completed his B.S.S. in electrical engineering in 1979 at the University of Detroit. In 1980 he assumed the position of Vice President at Energy International, Inc., a major import-export firm dealing with the Middle East. He held this position until he began The Arab American News in 1984, at which time he resigned to run the newspaper full-time.
