Michael Oren and David Rothkopf: In Conversation

Dear friends,

Shabbat Shalom, Shabbat Menucha–Shabbat filled with peace and tranquility.

I not only want to send you Shabbat peace but also a link to the Foreign Policy website where I found a very interesting, enlightening and somewhat disturbing email correspondence between David Rothkopf (CEO and Editor of Foreign Policy) and Michael Oren, former Israeli ambassador to the US. The back and forth correspondence is revealing in the depth of prejudice that even some very educated Jews, like Rothkopf, have toward Israel. What is even more remarkable to me is that he has only been to Israel once and only for two or three days, and yet he criticizes Israel in a fashion that I consider not only unfair but almost hateful. But you judge for yourselves and let me know what you think.

Here is the link:

Be well and, again, Shabbat Shalom,

‘A’ Jewish State vs. ‘The’ Jewish State
