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 | 2 comments
Sorry, my post was maybe somewhat difficult to understand and requires also some special knowledge about the "wipe of the map" - issue. You wrote in post #54 about some kind of regime change solution in Iran. Now, the irony is, that Ahmadinedjad once made a similar statement about Israel. But it was mistranslated into a much more aggressive "Israel should be wiped of the map". And this mistranslation (originally by an Iranian news agency) made big headlines, was so widely published and usually serves as proof, that Iran is hellbent on a war with Israel. But I think it is the other way around.
