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
nobody killed nor jailed Jewish people in USSR for that they were "Jewish". The religious people were imprisoned in USSR for disposing of religion, not specific to Judaism or any other faith. In fact if Israel Supreme Court was consistent in demanding joint study of religious and non - religious across all faiths in Israel, I would have little to complaint about. If Israel so whishes as to forcibly abolish religious education, I would surely look up to Israel Supreme Court. To make it a bit more specific, had Israel Supreme Court closed all madrasa, all of Christian religious schools, and forced every child into secular school... I would be happy to engage in secular / non - secular debate and in that context example of USSR would be relevant.
