British Jews and Israel

On Friday, Jewish Ideas Daily called attention to an important survey of British Jewish public opinion:

One finding that struck me is that 95 percent of UK Jews have visited Israel. Granted the journey is not as long as a trip from North America. Still, it is significant contrasted with US Jews -- MOST of whom have NEVER been to Israel.

Now that's what I call an exchange: What Jerusalem Can Learn from Washington & Moscow

10 Russian agents who infiltrated suburban America were deported in exchange for four people said to have been spying for the West and held in Russian prisons.

10 for 4.

The four were said to have delivered such good material to make the lopsided exchange reasonable.

10 for 4.

Not 1,000 for 1.

Not ONE of the 10 released pose any threat to US national security. Not one.

1,000 for 1? When among the 1,000 are scores who will kill again? Not spy again, kill again.

No way.
