Like any other country, Israel looks at world news through its own lens.
UK Election: Thank God that anti-Semite party wasn’t elected! Although if the Jews no longer felt welcome in Britain, they are definitely welcome here.
US Impeachment Hearings: What’s an impeachment?
At White House Chanukah Party, Trump signs Executive Order to Punish Campuses for Allowing Anti-Semitism: Whadda guy! Although the guest list was kind-of ^eye-roll^
Shooting in New Jersey: We are watching.
The Reimann family (owners of Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, among other well-known brands) committed to righting its Nazi sympathizer past and will track down people who were forced to work for them during the Holocaust to give them compensation. They are also committing EUR 25 million annually for Holocaust education: ^Nods of approval^
Finland’s Prime Minister is a 34-year-old Woman: ^crickets^
Meanwhile, here in Israel, we have our own issues.
On the way to a third election within a year: Seriously?!?!?!?
Netanyahu will not step down: Likud is having another leadership election. Netanyahu is trying to get support for direct elections for prime minister. Netanyahu keeps using the terms “witch hunt,” “attempted coup,” and “fake news.” (I wonder where he got the idea?)
And finally, watching American TV through my own Israeli lens.
An Israeli philosopher was mentioned on Chuck Lorre’s vanity card after Young Sheldon.
