Israel is the sane, stable democracy

Nov 4, 2016

Leave a Comment

Consider the situation in America to the situation in Israel on almost any foreign or domestic issue, and you’re forced to admit that, heck, Israel is in a better place….A lament for America, sullied by a loutish election campaign; and a comparative salute to Israel.

Leave a Comment
