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.

Johnboy's overflowing verbiage about Jordan's alleged treaty obligation to attack Israel in 1967 under a mutual defence pact with Egypt presupposes that Israel was the aggressor against Egypt. The view that Israel was the aggressor in 1967 has no legitimacy whatsoever. Zero. Zip. Zilch. Between June and November 1967 draft UN resolutions in both the Security Council and General Assembly condemning Israel over the 1967 Arab-Israeli war were defeated or withdrawn for lack of support six times. Draft resolutions demanding that Israel withdraw its forces unilaterally from territories it captured in that war were defeated or withdrawn four times.
