Israeli support for Trump gives American Jews a taste of their own medicine – Chemi Shalev – Haaretz 06.02.17
For so many years, with a few notable exceptions, American Jews of all persuasions have turned a blind eye to the fears and anxieties of Israelis who actually share their core values. When ‘leftists’ complain about occupation and democracy, Jewish Americans have preferred to believe Israel’s Sean Spicers and Kellyanne Conways, who swore it was all a lie. Fifty years of disenfranchisement of millions of Palestinians? Fuggedaboutit. So now the shoe is on the other foot.
