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 | 1 comments
Let's hope and pray that Hamas leaders will celebrate the 50 year anniversary in the Israeli "Knesset". Of course not as "occupiers", but rather as invited guests. However, for that to happen, Hamas will still have to moderate a little bit over the coming years. I would say "a bit much".... But a little "Hudna" (30 years) would probably not be the worst starting point there. However, I'm afraid the first peace-train will have to leave the ME-station without Hamas participation. May their West Bank "brothers" show them the (right) way..... Inschallah.
