After Netanyahu says he would wait for a new U.S. president to reach a better military deal for Israel, American officials fire back.00:09 08.02.16 | 5 comments
An interesting and revealing thought. I've always thought Israel would have struck a deal for peace if the original Eastern European Zionists had stuck with heir native Yiddish instead of choosing Hebrew, and an exotic pronunciation to boot. Yiddish is a language of accommodation, with a rich European history. Hebrew cut them off from that, from their own past, from their connections with the rest of the world. They went further and changed their names. We can see the consequences both on a personal and national level.
