Omri Ceren is the national security advisor for U.S. Senator Ted Cruz.[1]

He is a former Managing Director of The Israel Project and political blogger.[2] He also worked for Laurent Gbagbo during the 2010 Election in the Ivory Coast, working to stage Gbagbo's attempt to annul the vote and to promote Gbagbo's efforts in the US and other Western countries.[3]

He came to international attention when he uncovered that Human Rights Watch military analyst Marc Garlasco was an "avid collector" of Nazi memorabilia and published the information on his blog Mere Rhetoric.[4][5]

Ceren's blog focuses on the cultural, geopolitical, and economic aspects of the struggle between Western civilization and political Islam.[6]

He is currently a doctoral candidate in Rhetoric at the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication and a graduate of the University of Pittsburgh.[7][8]

Ceren has written for The Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, and has contributed op-eds to other publications.[6]

He also drew controversy for criticism of former American President Jimmy Carter's position on the 2006 Israel-Hezbollah conflict in Lebanon[9] and his defense of Ann Coulter against charges of anti-Semitism.[10][11]
