The millions of Egyptians who filled the streets of Egypt Sunday demanding the resignation of President Mohammad Morsi is a “very positive thing for people in the region,” according to Shimrit Meir, an analyst of Arabic media with The Israel Project.

Special To The Jewish Week

In a shocking violation of their spiritual obligations as clerics, in an op-ed posted on The Jewish Week website (“Hate Speech Has No Place in a Synagogue”), Rabbis Michael White and Jerome Davidson defame my work and me, while falsely claiming that I am “defaming fellow Americans of a different Abrahamic religion.” They have obviously never read my work — my columns or my books.

Jerusalem — The moment President Barack Obama declared victory, Israelis — both pundits and private individuals — began pondering what it could mean for Israel-U.S. relations.

“We want the best for the U.S. because we love the American people, but I hope we won’t need their government because, while I respect Obama, I don’t trust him,” said Michal Yehoshua, a 21-year-old government employee, sipping hot coffee during a break.
