And those now facing deep disappointment since Israel’s draconian closure after the Hamas takeover last June include many with visas and places at EU or even US universities. Israel has made it clear that “a few exceptions” have been allowed [...]
Notice that the Zionist “liberal”, Haaretz, refers to deep seated racism as “deep personal suspicion.” “But her father’s initial discomfort at the idea of an Arab donor betrays the deep personal suspicion that stokes this conflict, and gives the film a darker undertone. Yaakov Levinson remarks shortly after his daughter’s life-saving operation that he would [...]
