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
On another note--this article is just ridiculous. 'Fathers discover parenting after divorce'??? From what I have witnessed many divorce situations include non-agreement over child-rearing, which leaves the fathers disenfranchised in child raising decision-making. After the divorce they seem to have more interest only because they finally feel they can parent in their own manner. Changing this law is 100% pro-family, pro-woman, pro-child. Children need both parents, period. Currently the law encourages dead-beat dad behavior (would you be happy about giving 75% of your salary and not being able to see your child?), kidnapping (many israeli women return from abroad after divorcing to take advantage of the barbaric laws in israel and remove the father from the picture), and ultimately produces children with lower opportunities, family support, self esteem issues, and overall emotional and behavioral problems. So, if those things are good, keep the law.
