Dan Fleshler is a writer and media strategist in New York City. In October, 2013, he started a blog called The Insulin Chronicles, which conveys the lessons he has learned and the mysteries he has encountered from living with Type 1 diabetes since...1962. This is a new direction for him. Previously, most of his writing focused on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the organized American Jewish community.
It is safe to say that he is the only writer in the universe who has published a personal essay about diabetic complications as well as an op-ed analyzing Palestinian-Israeli security cooperation in the West Bank.
His book, Transforming America's Israel Lobby --The Limits Of its Power and the Potential For Change, was published by Potomac Books in April, 2009. Check out the rave reviews on the web site.
Professionally, he has represented a wide range of corporate and not-for-profit clients, including health care providers. He is a board member of Ameinu and Americans for Peace Now and is on the Advisory Council of J Street, three American Jewish organizations that advocate active, balanced U.S. engagement in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
He has ghost-written and placed numerous op-eds in major American newspapers during the last two decades. Op-eds and features under his own byline have been published in New York Times, Village Voice, Forward, New York Jewish Week, Ha’Aretz, Reform Judaism magazine and other publications.
