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.

Bob: You took my statement jout of content. This is what I meant " Freedom of specch in the US is a myth when it comes to Israel". I tend to agree with you that many articles printed in Haaretz will never see the daylight in the Washington Post or the New York times for that matter. In fact there is a much healthier debate among Israeli Jews than among American Jews. Likewise, Palestinians in the West Bank are much more moderate than those in the diaspora in the US, Lebanon, etc.
