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
aye, Israel has some nasty polluters, and it will be tough to clean up things, especially when confronting the huge union run electric and gasoline bodies. I remember before the intifada began in 2000, the green issue had gained alot of attention, and was getting alot of press. Yossi Sarid had taken the portfolio and did what he did best, garner press though he did little. Once the intifada hit the fan it all but dissapeared as an issue, imagine that. Last year on a canoe trip in Algonquin (Canada), I was warned not to drink the water, seems that the resources ministry had discovered traces of Beaver shit in the water. The more advanced the country the most advanced the study of pollution. When one ignores it, or is not educated to it's existence, it is much like your shadow, there but not grabbing one's attention. As for polluters take a trip to Bangkok, take a whiff and you will discover what really bad pollution smells like. Good luck with the Habs.
