Yisrael Medad
I am a resident of Shiloh, with my wife and children, and now grandchildren, since 1981, having come on Aliyah in 1970. I have served in a volunteer capacity as a Yesha Council spokesperson, twice a member of Amana's secretariat, Benjamin Regional Council plenum member and mayor of Shiloh. I was a parliamentary aide for Geula Cohen and two other MKs, an advisor to a Minister, vice-chairman and executive director of Israel's Media Watch and was Information and Content Resource coordinator for the Begin Heritage Center. I am now Deputy Editor of the critical edition in anthology of Jabotinsky's writing in English.

Did he?

Did he visit an academic institution beyond the Green Line?

Well, he did, but it wasn't Ariel University.  Of course not.

But he was in Hebron and according to this official tweet:

CG & Pres. of @HebronUniv discuss U.S. aid for U.S./English studies, job skills training, & curriculum development.

And this informs us that on March 7

CG visited @UNRWA in Shu'fat Camp – part of Jerusalem, but outside separation wall and lacking basic services.

On March 10, the

CG visits South Hebron Hills, where unprecedented demolitions continue despite international community's concerns

Earlier this month

Consulate staff attended a workshop for civil society and journalists in Bethlehem hosted by Internews - West Bank & Gaza Civic Forum Institute, Palestinian Media Policy & Resource Center and SoukTel

Jews also live in the areas supervised by the US Consulate.

But no official public visits to our schools, our olive harvesting festivals, our libraries, our cultural projects, our markets, our industrial parks.

We're beyond the pale, in a sense.
