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
Duncan, I assume they want something from Israel too. Till today I haven't heard from the Israeli PM what Hamas could expect in return from Israel. Look, I generally support the boycott against Hamas, as long as they refuse to accept Israels right to exist. But I still think both the West and Israel could be more outspoken on what they might get in return for "good behaviour". No guarantee that this would work. But the stick-only policy didn't work either, so why not try...???
