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
I am sorry to say it but this is a silly argument. Obama approved of the funds for the Iron Dom and various other projects. If Israel is a priority for American Jews then it is a priority for Obama. Regardless of what happens the US administration is going to have to listen to the needs of Israel as well as Israel will have to listen to America. Another point, people lose wars. The countries you mentioned are better off today than the days when the wars were started. Russia delivers Germany gas and looks for German investment. Japan has ties it´s defense to the United States. People in Danzig look positive on contacts with Germany and potential investors. The idea of a hostile attitude toward Israel does not fit into the mentality of an intelligent person. Even the Palestinians would like to have an enjoyable relationship with Israel when they are sitting in their room alone. To put that burden on Obama is foolish.
