I like Bar Rafaeli so much more after that interview. She's got beauty and brains and doesn't shy from expressing her view. Don't forget that the Jews who survived the Holocaust and came and helped build Israel were the ones who put pragmaticism before pride and idealism and decided that it was better to live as Christians than to sew stars on their shirts. Bar Rafaeli's quote about life in New York as better than death for one's country comes from that same streak and has a wisdom behind it that the Israeli press and public has been too quick to dismiss. Kudos to her for making something of herself and avoiding complicity in the occupation at the same time! She's got beauty and brains!
