One thought on “Now It’s My Fault Too”

  1. That’s really cool that they moved to Israel and the dad got his citizenship card. Israel is an amazing place. I liked his reflection on loving and wanting to improve a place at the same time.

    I was a bit disappointed by the total absence of Palestinians in his ideas of improvements, even in relations to conversations had with Israelis about Israel. When I lived there, conversations with Arabs and Druze happened every day, and were a positive part of the complex stew that is Israel. So the lack of Palestinians seemed a bit echoing… But maybe that reflects the too-big scope of that whole issue. Or maybe he addresses it in another blog post.

    I was also surprised he didn’t mention the tomatoes. People who talked with us about making aliyah always cited how good the tomatoes were compared to in the US. Never any other produce. It made wonder if there was a Department of Aliyah with talking points, or a website they were all going to for help writing their presentations. 😀
