Oren: Israel is a 'Real Country', Not an 'Issue'

American Jewry must overcome the bitter divisiveness stemming from Israel being seen “as an issue, as a society either to be idealized, demonized, or ignored” rather than “a real country,” said Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren on Tuesday, JNS reported.

Speaking to the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) General Assembly in Baltimore, explained that the American and Israeli Jewish communities should be asking themselves not how they can coexist, but instead how they can “co-flourish.”
