A number of Jewish organizations have allied with African-American groups for years to protect voting rights.
Two of the signatories, Brian Schatz of Hawaii and Bernie Sanders of Vermont, are Jewish.
Here’s my completely beside-the-point thought on the latest political developments: Are we living through a weighty HBO political drama? Or a raunchy satirical take on Showtime?
The Tell is a weekly roundup of the latest Jewish political news from Ron Kampeas, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency’s Washington Bureau Chief.;
Three years after he asked his adviser son-in-law Jared Kushner to make peace between Israel and the Palestinians, President Donald Trump is ready to launch his “ultimate deal.”;
The Trump administration, along with the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, has retreated in recent years from that vision;
The pushback Trump got from Democrats and Republicans alike in the wake of his abandonment of the Kurds would be tenfold were he to throw Israel to the wolves.
This week, in speeches to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, it became clear that the plan will likely not accommodate a sovereign Palestinian state.
The Mossad hardly ever confirms its operations, which the prime minister must approve.
What does this mean for the proposal to revive Israeli-Palestinian talks that Kushner and his team are said to be releasing “soon”?
