American Friends of Soroka Medical Center are giving an award at their gala to Mandy Patinkin, an American Jewish celebrity who supports economic warfare against Jews living and working in Judea and Samaria.
Four major American Jewish organizations publicly expressed disgust over the choice to honor Jimmy Carter by a journal of Cardozo School of Law.
I will come, at my own expense, to debate Jimmy Carter on Carter's own human rights record. If Cardozo will have me, I will come and provide the students, the administration and anyone else that is interested, with a first rate debate about the meaning of human rights and they can decide whether what Jimmy Carter has done, constitutes human rights or human wrongs.

When I was young, my father, like many of his generation, frequently remarked that America was the greatest country in the world. He was an immigrant who lost almost his entire family in the Holocaust. He came here with nothing and earned everything. He treasured his American citizenship, guarding his citizenship papers like others would guard heirloom silver.
