Selling Out My Birthright
Alex Halperin discusses the darkside of the birthright israel experience in New Voices.
Also in New Voices this month, a ring-side play by play of the Neuwirth/Seidler-Feller rubmle.
Shlomo: Ladies and gents, stepping into the fray from the red corner we have hawkish pro-Israel activist and free-lance journalist Rachel “Talons of Steel” Neuwirth.
Menachem: She doesn’t look happy. And, yes, she’s challenging him. She’s taken the Dove-inator aside!
Shlomo: We’ve got a live one here folks. Neuwirth just hit Seidler-Feller with the claim that Nusseibeh told Saddam Hussein to launch Scud missiles at Israeli cities.
Menachem: A devastating rhetorical blow!
Shlomo: Don’t count the rabid rebbe out yet. Whoa, this thing’s really getting heated.
Menachem: Folks, it’s difficult to tell from our angle. But it looks like the rabbi just grabbed Neuwirth’s arm while she said he was “worse than a kapo.”
Shlomo: Hard to say which came first.
Well, it’s kinda funny.
