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
A young mans birthday is special. My son turns 18 this week and my heart soars with joy. His achievements are so great already. The time he thought nothing of himself and became a hero by jumping in a pool at a party when his friend was drowing. Just a little guy then. The time he pushed his friend out of the way of a car. The time he ran his bike into the house or the go cart into the barb wire fence and he survived it all. The time he went on a save alert with me to check out a Nicaragua USA embassy that had Israeli and USA Marines there. We got into a fire fight as they were overrun. His education and I want all our sons to have education rights as well as daughters. We should celebrate everyones special moments but this week he becomes a man. Trevor Wayne Antoonan Lynch my son. He already was at 10. Bemai Rankoo Nowar Llamos .... Netanya Rabin.
