The second one is employment. I want to see joint industrial parks. The third one I think is the most problematic but maybe the most important: The fact that sixty-five years after the creation of the refugee problem the fifth generation still lives in squalid conditions maintained by a corrupt U.
The conflict will be as unresolvable as it is today. But it will make a dramatic change in the lives of real people. This is the option we pose now. Do we want to do nothing but engage in escalating diplomatic warfare with outbursts of violence, or come to grips with the conclusion that the conflict does not have a solution right now and make out of it the best things we can?
You know, I come from the start-up-nation generation. I have been an entrepreneur for about twenty years and started many companies here in Jerusalem. My generation in Israel is moving into political life, and we do not accept some of the premises that the previous leadership brought to the table. One premise is that the situation is not solvable or that we can focus on economic advances and give up on political agreements. Granted, we have a very tough situation here.
I am convinced that with this attitude we will have a two-state solution within five or ten years. This is especially true with entrepreneurs, who view one another through a different prism, across different cultures. You see a very entrepreneurial community in Jordan of people who were not connected to the administration. And you see pockets of innovation, especially among women, around Cairo.
You see places like Tunisia, where the Arab Spring has brought not only frightening events but also the first real democracy. Although politicians are having a hard time finding models of cooperation, in the business community we have a few of these models. I was in the Golani Brigade, and we worried about it all the time.
Today, in the governorate of Jenin there is a big discussion with the Israeli region of Gilboa, which is right next door, about creating an industrial zone that would span both.
And just recently I saw that they are marketing a tourist package in Germany: If you drive half an hour north from where we are and you stand in the middle of Ramallah, you see thirty-five cranes. I am sure it is going to happen.
Erel, it seems to me that your view that there is great possibility for change has much to do with being involved in the process. I wonder if such involvement does not create the illusion of movement. I view myself as belonging to the second group. Like most Israelis, I am a bystander, and I do not see the things you see. Those actively involved in the two populations fall prey to an illusion that many changes are possible because they confuse movement and change, whereas people like me fall prey to the opposite illusion: So you see negative trends?
I see conflicting trends. I define myself as being at the juncture between diasporic Jews and Israeli Jews. I was born in Morocco, but I grew up largely in France and spent many years as an academic in the United States. I arrived in Israel after the age of thirty and have never really been able to become a full-fledged sabra. As someone who still identifies with the Diaspora, I often feel like a stranger to myself as an Israeli. This, it seems to me, is a breach in Israeli identity that is going to grow increasingly and reshape the relationships between Jews and Israel.
Remember that originally the vocation of the country was not only national but transnational as well. Israel was to represent the unity of the entire Jewish people. We are starting to see this change dramatically. A group of intellectual Israelis have emigrated to Berlin and claimed they were returning to their real roots in Europe. For those of us who wanted to be Jewish and yet did not relish separating ourselves from non-Jews, Israel was a universalist solution to our dilemma.
Israel was the solution to the contradiction between particularity and universality. We are witnessing a complete reversal of this dynamic: In the past few years it has become painfully clear that Israel has in fact become a particularistic, ethno-religious project. In the first Knesset, there were sixteen members from the only distinguished religious party, the United Religious Front. These changes are reflected in the public rhetoric, which has become far more religious, as was obvious when Netanyahu demanded that Israel be recognized as a Jewish state.
Such a demand had never been made before. Politically, Israel is a different entity. Many Jews have stopped identifying with Israel, not because they are assimilating, not out of apathy, but through a conscious, deliberate belief that Israel jeopardizes the moral core of their identity. The new trend is toward the isolation of Israel not only from the world but from an increasingly large faction of the Jewish people.
This is not only because of the way in which Israel relates to the Palestinians and the Palestinian issue but also because of the ways in which Israel has treated Jews themselves. The state has missed a very important opportunity to be a platform in which all the plurality of forms of Judaism could meet and flourish.
In fact, Judaism has been less able to flourish in Israel than in Christian countries after World War II because of the control of Orthodox Judaism in all major state institutions and its legal framework. And this is not disconnected to the issue we are discussing. Israel is unable to solve the conflict with Palestinians for the same reasons it is unable to provide a platform uniting Jews: Ultra-Orthodox, various religious factions, and settlers have in fact reshaped public rhetoric, schools, and key state institutions, thus making it increasingly difficult to hold on to a liberal, universalist vision of humanity from which grand projects like peace and pluralism can emerge.
Here I am simply echoing a general sense that everyone has. Certainly at the university it is palpable.
I suspect this is only the beginning of what will be an irresistible process. There is a deep crisis of trust in Israeli institutions. Many secular people, members of the traditional elite, have no faith whatsoever in their political leadership and institutions and are leaving Israel. And I think what you said is absolutely relevant. I mean, some are leaving.
I think it is a significant trend. The university feels it very much. We have great difficulties bringing back the outstanding students who went to do their Ph. I deal with these centers of excellence and. I am not surprised that Dani Dayan thinks Israeli academia to be an insignificant circle. It takes time until we can properly measure the percentage of migration and the characteristics of immigrants in the last years.
This is a striking number. We should come back to the question of whether the kinds of political changes you anticipate, Erel, are conceivable without the threat of global isolation that Eva is referring to. I just wanted to add another observation, about the trends I see on the horizon.Full Panel: White House finds an 'acting' Chief of Staff - Meet The Press - NBC News
I see at work a process of what I would call the dis-enclavation of Israeli Arabs. Arab towns are exploding because they have no land or building permits, and there is no way for the tiny physical space left by Israeli authorities to fit the demographic growth. This will lead to two trends: Israeli society was relatively free of noxious racism for as long as Arabs were kept in faraway enclaves. But those enclaves will not work anymore. We are going to see greater integration, not by ideology and not by principle, just by the force of demography, and this will in turn create racist backlashes inside Israeli society.
Since Eva mentioned the trends among Palestinians who are Israeli citizens, I want to give Forsan a chance to jump in here. This is the heart of the issue. It was a major village before When I was nine and ten years old, it was the height of the First Intifada. And, of course, the Arab media at the time portrayed the worst images of Israel. It was only by chance that when I was ten years old I met a Jewish person. It was such a shock that it dismantled all the stereotypes that I had.
I helped create the first organization in Israel that brings Arabs and Jews together. And I raised these questions with the foreign minister during our visit [to Iran] and the assurance was given that the full response will be given at the UN Human Rights Council in June, as is required.
The message I got from my visit was that Iran is a country that is strong, a country with the most amazing history.

I respect what brought about the revolution in I am glad we could clear this up for you. Additionally, Israeli school children are encouraged to plant trees, once again contributing to the gradual marginalization of the Palestinian people from their land, tree by planted tree.
To add insult to injury, the debacle gains a festive air as attendees consume four glasses of wine. But all is not lost. Something about helpful trees and rocks that talk. And in this parable, perhaps we can strive to find a solution to the current impasse.
A Solution that is indeed rather Final, if you will. Quite Fascinating, to tell the truth. Trump has said, there can be vetting -- triggered the anger of the Western academic community. Their distress seems to center around the exclusion from the United States of researchers and scholars from Islamic countries sanctioned by the American administration.
Harvard, Yale and Stanford sued the White House. What is more "progressive" than a Western academic community struggling to keep the scientific gates open? Sadly, however, many of those who have promoted these appeals have been instrumental in spreading other, racist, appeals to boycott their Israeli colleagues.
It is, in the same universities, the "Israel Ban". The discrimination is not directed at scientists from Yemen or Somalia, but only at those with a passport from the Jewish State.
Nadine el Enany, for instance, the first signatory of the appeal against the United States "Muslim ban", is one of the signers of the appeal to boycott her Israeli academic colleagues.

What about protesting his own xenophobia? A progressive "conscience" did not prevent Adib-Moghaddam from also signing an appeal to boycott Israeli researchers and professors. How NOT to respond to antisemites claiming 'only to be against Israeli government' Every day in the main stream media we hear antisemites 'people opposed to the Israeli government' spew hatred and lies against Israel and say "it is not antisemitic to point these things out".
In Britain - if any response at all is offered - it is usually in the form of an apologetic 'Jewish spokesperson' who, instead of challenging the lies about Israel, says meekly: This short video explains what the response should be. Reviewing BBC reporting on the BDS campaign in As has often been noted here, for years the BBC has reported stories relating to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign BDS without adequately clarifying to its audiences that what that campaign ultimately seeks to achieve is the end of Israel as the Jewish state.
So did BBC audiences see any improvement in ? In March the BBC News website reported a story about a member of the Palestine Solidarity Campaign denied entry to Israel but — despite the obvious relevance to the story — failed to inform audiences what the BDS campaign aspires to achieve. Oakland bakery draws protests with life-size mural of Palestinian terrorist Some 30 protesters gathered outside of an Arab-style bakery and restaurant in Oakland, California, to protest a life-size mural in the shop featuring convicted Palestinian terrorist Rasmea Odeh.
The vigil is part of a series of protests against the mural by a group called Oakland United Against Hate, the newspaper reported. Several months ago, owner Reem Assil filed a restraining order against at least one of protesters. And from my experience, this is true in some cases. However, I find that in a majority of cases, prejudice against Jews and outright antisemitism are at work, like my regular anti-Zionist-not-antisemite series illustrates.

And if it was not at all abundantly clear already from their dehumanization of Jewish people, these haters really do not care about human rights at all. In the latest example of this, anti-Zionist-not-antisemite Jordina Salabert aka Jil Love recently posted this about the incredible Nikki Haley.
Haaretz commendably corrected its erroneous Jan. Meanwhile, The Jerusalem Post has also corrected. What's the real story? Please accept our apologies for the delay in replying. Kim was making the point that the newspaper concerned had not placed enough context in its headline. She is making a point about there being two sides to the issue. Her tweets were not about the incident itself but the need for more sophisticated reporting from Newsweek.
She was pointing out the other perspective on the issue which was not reflected in the Newsweek headline. We hope this is helpful, and thank you again for your feedback. Israel now wants Trump to reject Palestinian 'right of return,'" had been unclear about the number of living Palestinian refugee, stating: The number of Palestinian refugees still alive today numbers in the low tens of thousands. As Times of Israel previously noted If the normal UN definition had been applied to the estimatedPalestinians who fled or were expelled from what became Israel in the late s, the Palestinian refugee problem today would extend to the relatively few survivors among those— a number estimated in the low tens of thousands.
In addition, Times of Israel previously published this AP story, which reported: Those registered refugees and their descendants now total 5 million living in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Gaza and the West Bank. Those who favor a distinction between the two argue that more than a half-century later, there are only 30, original refugees left. Last month, Israel took significant steps to solve humanitarian problems in Africa, and we drew attention to the fact that this was completely ignored by the UK media.
With a population of 1. The numbers are staggering: Raising living standards in India is one of the great social challenges of our time and, naturally, these issues have received much coverage in the UK press see the links above, as well as here, here, here. During his six-day trip, Netanyahu witnessed existing Israeli projects in India, and he and his delegation signed deals and announced new projects.
Three BBC articles on US aid promote an irrelevant false comparison Obviously the amount of military aid the US chooses to give to Israel has nothing whatsoever to do with either of these stories. And yet, BBC journalists continue to repeatedly shoehorn that irrelevant information into reports supposedly about US donations to a UN agency and to the Palestinian Authority.
BBC policy on use of term migrants ignored in WS report about Israel As readers may be aware, the BBC sometimes appends a footnote to relevant articles concerning its use of the term migrant.
The BBC uses the term migrant to refer to all people on the move who have yet to complete the legal process of claiming asylum. This group includes people fleeing war-torn countries such as Syria, who are likely to be granted refugee status, as well as people who are seeking jobs and better lives, who governments are likely to rule are economic migrants. Israel gives over thirty thousand refugees and asylum seekers just three months to leave the country voluntarily.
If not, they will face indefinite jail terms or be forcibly repatriated. Radical imams are spewing anti-Semitism in the US with impunity Muslim clerics are threatening the lives of Jews from the pulpits of American mosques, and they are doing it with virtual impunity, say former US law-enforcement officials who worry that the rhetoric could lead to violent attacks.
Over the past six months, at least five prominent US imams have been caught on tape preaching violence against Jews in sermons at mosques across America. Jewish people already are disproportionately targeted for hate crimes in America, but recent sermons could fan the flames of anti-Semitism. In November, the FBI released new data showing there were more Jewish victims of anti-religious hate crimes in the last reported year than victims of all other religious groups combined.
