    Jews from a Different Planet

    “But why does he have to make provocations with these declarations of his?!” I was shocked to hear this sentence come out of the mouths of my Jewish-American relatives. Yes, they were referring to Trump (who they hate) and to the Jerusalem Declaration. I love my relatives but they live in a completely different universe than I do.

    Inspiration from Zion: WE ARE ARI FULD
