Yael Patir, Israel director of the left-leaning U.S. Jewish body, sat down with Haaretz to talk about Trump, the gap between U.S. and Israeli Jews, and the growing anger at the Israeli peace camp. Though she concedes boycott efforts by some on the left have a negative effect, she rejects calls to keep peace efforts local.01:12 01.05.16 | 4 comments
Jacob All I have to say is this:Not having saved the response I'll just put what is relevant only. Firstly although I am a fervent Zionist I am also equally a patriotic Jew. Secondly: Let me remind you that Judaism=Zionism. Thirdly:About the so-called settlers you met:Which were they methinks?there are settlers and settlers.The ones that were asked to leave after 40 years not only wer they a buffer from terrorist attacks and who were encouraged to be there by consecutive Govts over the whole period were workinf along side with the Pals who worked with them and enjoyed a good living standard when those good Jews were living there. So, really I cannot continue with the whole episode when Sharon decided to remove them after 40 years hard work and what they had accomplished,but you must have heard the result of relinquishing Gaza and the result is instead of benefitting from all the "hot housesd"donated by a good Jew,plus all the infrastructures what did the palis do?they turned into a launching pad for the kassams.If you approve of this,then I feel sorry for you.
