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.

What amazes me is that here in London Jews, Muslims, Christians, Hindus, Buddhists live in the same roads and get on reasonably well. We would all help each other if required. Why is it such a miracle in Jerusalem if Jews and Arabs help each other? Who is creating so much bad will? We need to build bridges on a purely personal basis. I'm equally astonished that Israel Haredim seem to be so cut off from the rest of society, while here in London they are not -- at least not 9 to 5.
