Omri is a regular contributor to Commentary Magazine’s blog Contentions, where he has been writing since 2010. His posts focus on foreign affairs, especially in the context of Middle East diplomacy and geopolitics. He also maintains Is Iran’s Fist Still Clenched?, a site compiling news and commentary on the situation in Iran and around Central Asia.
In 2003 Omri created and launched his blog Mere Rhetoric, focusing on “the geopolitical, cultural, and economic dimensions of the global war between the West and political Islam.” He posted there regularly until 2010, generating over 6,000 articles and over 2 million pageviews, and building the blog into a Google PageRank 5 site. His investigative journalism was cited by The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, the BBC, Reuters, the Associated Press, The Jerusalem Post, and dozens of other outlets.
In addition to his articles on Mere Rhetoric and Contentions, Omri has been published in magazines such as Commentary, in international outlets such as The Jerusalem Post, and in local media such as The Los Angeles Jewish Journal and The Pittsburgh Jewish Chronicle. He has also contributed posts to the Breitbart blogs Big Journalism and Big Peace, which are archived here and here.
Starting in 2009 Omri spent a year as the producer and host of The Omri Ceren Show, an hour-long weekly online radio program sponsored by One Jerusalem. The show focused on American, Israeli, and international affairs, and was built around interviews with diplomats and think tankers. Posts describing each episode are archived at Mere Rhetoric here.
Omri appears regularly as a guest analyst on cable and radio news programs. Those appearances – and all his commentary on domestic and international affairs – can be followed on Mere Rhetoric.
