About In The Lion's Den

Written by Israel’s former Ambassador to the United Nations, In the Lion’s Den, including a foreword by Nikki Haley, is a gripping personal account of the life events that encouragedIsraeli government official, Danny Danon, to pursue his chosen career path in public service and make the move to become Israel’s 17th Permanent Representative to the United Nations. It is a book that brings to the fore Danon’s direct and principled approach to diplomacy andpolitics, even when this was discredited by his critics.

In the Lion’s Den draws on the unique perspective of a man who has spent his entire career in his nation’s public service. Danon shares his experiences on the front lines of Israel’s global presence––the successes as well as the disappointments. Danon makes a compelling case for an Israel that must be proud of its identity and faith; forge relationships with diverse peoples; make autonomous domestic decisions; and determine its own foreign policy. Danon seeks to unite where many look to divide.

In this book, Danon lays out a roadmap for Israel’s future on the regional and global stage andoutlines the path Israel must follow in order to continue to make a positive contribution to global prosperity and peace and ensure its safety in a fraught region. As the Jewish state enters the next phase of its existence, Danon’s inspiring vision will help Israel fulfill the noble vision of its founders.
