„Looking back over nearly 50 years of activities devoted to Israel’s security, I feel we are very near to a turning point that holds heavy existential ramifications for all of us: Israelis, American Jews, the United States, even our Palestinian neighbors.“
Dear Friend of Israel:
Next year will mark half a century since my arrival in Israel, a 19-year old from Washington DC in search of a Jewish national identity and a mission in life. Almost from the start, and to this day, I have been involved in Israel-related security activity. Today, in contemplating the prolonged crisis of Israeli-Palestinian relations, I recall a number of key junctures in my personal interaction with the Palestinian issue and the cause of peace. The approaching of the High Holidays seems like a good time to share them with you.
