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
"the Americans will not ask Israel to stop building in East Jerusalem, but will not say so publicly or in writing." So, Israel is allowed to continue its occupation crimes, the jewish extremists have their way again and the US is made to look like a dog, afraid it is hit by its boss, the Israeli government. Excellent, life as we know it for the last 43 years is continuing as normal. US leaders continue to "express their regret" over the settlement crimes and continue to repeat the old, vague, dusty mantras of "urging the parties involved back to the negotiating table". Another bad day for democracy and justice.
