Quote: "I am President of the Herzl Institute in Jerusalem, and currently serve as Chairman of the Edmund Burke Foundation, a new public affairs institute based in Washington that will be hosting the first National Conservatism Conference in July 2019."
Yoram Hazony will be presenting at a conference on “National Conservatism” in July 2019. The National Conservatism Conference Presidium includes David Brog, Christopher DeMuth, Yoram Hazony, Daniel McCarthy, Joshua Mitchell, R.R. Reno.
In response to Patrick Casey, president of the American Identity Movement, Hazony tweeted: "What separates us isn't any lack of enthusiasm for American nationalism on my part. What separates us is my view that a nation isn't a race, that nationalism isn't racism." and "What separates us is my view that the American nation--an actual people with a particular cultural inheritance, bound by ties of mutual loyalty--is a far greater and better thing than the bogus, pseudo-scientific construct that the race nerds hope to replace it with."
Tweeted: "We Jews are a nation, not a race. Anyone who is loyal to the Jewish people, its God and tradition, can go to a rabbinic court and become a Jew. That offer is open, and has been open to people of different races, since biblical times."
Tweeted: "I do think the Israeli national-state model can help Americans think about their own nationalism. But since Israelis regard their country as a national state and not a race state, you need to understand what Israelis mean by "nation" if you want to get how our state works."
