"I've never heard anyone who has made this stuff as clear as you...   It was
like somebody had just opened the windows and
  the light came pouring in."

Bruzonsky is today the publisher of and Washington Associate of Goals for Americans.   He freqently writes and speaks about U.S. foreign policy, the Middle East, and U.S.-Israeli relations.

In the past Bruzonsky was Associate Editor of WORLDVIEW MAGAZINE in New York and Interview Editor of THE MIDDLE EAST MAGAZINE in London.  He was Washington Representative of The World Jewish Congress from 1977 to 1984 as well as Special Assistant to Philip M. Klutznick -- the most senior Jewish leader in the country at the time.   Philip Klutznick was uniquely President of both B'nai B'rith International as well as the World Jewish Congress and he was Secretary of Commerce for the last two years of the Carter Administration.

Bruzonsky has been a consultant on the Middle East for a number of prestigious organizations including Congressional Quarterly (CQ), The National Geographic Society, Okaz Organization for Press and Publications in Saudi Arabia, and The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars at the Smithsonian where he published the book SECURITY IN THE MIDDLE EAST; REGIONAL CHANGE AND GREAT POWER STRATEGIES.   His previous book, THE MIDDLE EAST, U.S. POLICY, ISRAEL, OIL, AND THE ARABS was published by CQ; and he was special Middle East consultant for an educational film-strip series titled THE MIDDLE EAST published by the National Geographic Society.

In these many and varied capacities Bruzonsky has made over 150 visits to countries in the greater Middle East region from Libya to Pakistan.  He has been the official guest of a number of governments and organizations in numerous countries including Egypt, Jordan, Israel, Lebanon, the PLO, Tunisia, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Nigeria, Ethiopia, and Pakistan.

Early in his career, in November 1977, Bruzonsky made world headlines when he personally arranged with Egyptian President Anwar Sadat for the sending of the first public telegram from the Arab world to Israel.  A picture of Bruzonsky meeting with Sadat appeared on the front page of many Egyptian newspapers.  The previous year Bruzonsky was the subject of a column by Washington Post Editor Steven Rosenfeld who singled him out for his insightful commentaries regarding U.S. policies toward the Middle East and the Arab-Israeli conflict.

Again in 1982 Bruzonsky made world headlines when he authored "The Paris Declaration" which was published on page1 of LeMonde with a full top-of-page banner headline.  This historic statement was uniquely signed by Nahum Goldman (founder of both the World Jewish Congress and the World Zionist Organization), Philip Klutznick (former U.S. Secretary of Commerce and President of both the World Jewish Congress and B'nai B'rith International), and Pierre Mendes-France (former President of France) -- three of the world's most senior and respected Jewish leaders at the time.  In their response to this historic statement Yasser Arafat and the PLO Representative in Europe Dr. Isam Sartawi considered this 'Paris Declaration' at the time to be a Balfour Declaration for the Palestinian people that would hasten the creation of an independent Palestinian State and lead to a general Middle East peace between Israel and the Arab States.. 

From 1982 through 1994 Bruzonsky wrote a regular weekly newspaper column, "From Washington", that was published in a number of leading newspapers in the Middle East including Al-Ahram in Egypt, Ad-Dustour in Jordan, and Okaz in Saudi Arabia.   And from 1988 through 1995 Bruzonsky was Chairperson of the Jewish Committee On the Middle East, an organization of Jewish intellectuals and academics which was at the time a leading outspoken voice for new U.S. policies in the Middle East (see

In 1989 Bruzonsky was invited to be part of a special year-long panel of experts organized by the Middle East Institute and The Atlantic Council which resulted in the publication of a special report, Western Interests and U.S. Policy Optons in the Middle East.   Bruzonsky wrote the only major dissent published in the report.

In 1995 Bruzonsky was one of a select group of ten Middle East experts featured in a special  multimedia CD about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the "peace process," titled LINES IN THE SAND, published by Tiger Media in Canada.

From 1996 through 2004 Bruzonsky was the producer and host a weekly TV Program that was broadcast on all the major cable systems in the greater Washington, DC area as well as for some years in New York and Philadelphia.

Bruzonsky has lectured at many universities and public affairs organizations; and was twice invited to lecture about the Middle East at the U.S. Army War College in Carlysle, Pennsylvania.  He has been a guest on many TV and radio programs including The Donahue Show, C-Span, FOX News, NBC, Close-Up, BBC, CBC, and Voice of America.     During the historic White House signing ceremony with Yitzhak Rabin, Yasser Arafat, and Bill Clinton Bruzonsky provided the live commentary for Canadian National Television (CTV).

Bruzonsky's written articles and extensive interviews with key figures including former U.N. Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali, Israeli Foreign Minister Shimon Peres, Yasser Arafat, Edward Said, Noam Chomsky, and other leading political and intellectual personalities have appeared in more than 35 magazines and newspapers throughout the U.S., Europe, Israel, and the Arab world.
