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
You may have heard of a concept unknown by some poepl on Earth: humanity. It is when you feel that something must be done in order to prevent innocent deaths. In our case, Israel wants to prevent deaths by rocket fires AND the opening of a war front in the north and gaza if it must strike Iran. Then, on a different plan, there is Iran, which is an existiential threat thus made worse by its antennas (Hamas and Hizbullah) which can open other fronts if prompted. So you're compraing both 2 uncomparable and just things (preventing nuclear strike and civilian deaths) AND 2 things linked by the side of a possibility of front openings in case of war with Iran. Twice as wrong.
