It's clear to me that you have very little real understanding of Birthright, its programming, nor its target audiences' purpose. As a veteran Madrich with 24 years (yes, predating Birthright) in the Israeli-American experience, I can honestly say that this article is not indicative of the experiences of my participants. Our trips are eye-opening, we discuss issues intelligently, and we connect American and Israelis. Is Birthright perfect? No. Could there be other types of trips available for Americans and Israelis - Sure. But there is no reason to knock one at the expense of the other.
