The international Jewish community praised former South African President Nelson Mandela, who died Thursday at 95 in his Johannesburg home.
Israeli President Shimon Peres called Mandela “a great leader who changed the course of history. He was a passionate advocate for democracy, a respected mediator, a Nobel peace prize laureate and above all a builder of bridges of peace and dialogue who paid a heavy personal price for his struggle in the years he spent in prison and fighting for his people.”
Video blogger Aaron Herman spoke with Director Ziad Doueiri about his new film "The Attack," a mystery, political thriller and a love story. An Israeli-Arab doctor, devastated by his wife's death in a terrorist attack, uncovers her startling secret.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Nov. 30 accused Israel of being suspicious of Palestinians and showing a “lack of generosity” and “lack of empathy” to them, saying there is “more that the Israelis need to do to really demonstrate that they do understand the pain of an oppressed people in their minds.”
“I’m not making excuses for the missed opportunities of the Israelis, or the lack of generosity, the lack of empathy that I think goes hand-in-hand with the suspicion,” Clinton said at the Saban Center for Middle East Policy in Washington, DC.
