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
Hi, In your last reply you said: "The Arabs that fled because of the impending war had no property like the ones that stayed". OK. I am not aware of that. Can you provide the name of an objective book or internet source where I can read about it? Thanks, I'd appreciate that. You then go on to say: "I know you have a thing against Israel" Why do you say that? I personally want to understand the conflict better...from what I have read so far I may have formed an opinion, but that is not to say my opinion is anti Israel. I have visited Israel many times...I quite like it there actually. You then go on to say: "it really behooves you to read some time-line history to get a sense of why things are like today...." I have read quite a lot. I read Uri Avnery, Chomsky etc. They are both Jews so I hope they are objective. Their opinions don't seem to match yours...but I'm open to persuasion. So before you mock me, try me. Cheers.
