Here’s a pop quiz: Confronted with complaints that Taglit-Birthright, which brings young Diaspora Jews on free trips to Israel, “glosses over” the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, who gave the following response? “The Birthright visit has nothing to do with the conflict. It’s a first meeting with Israel, and naturally what they get in it is the Israeli point of view. They don’t have to go and visit Ramallah on their first trip, too.”Hint: If you guessed a right-of-center Israeli politician, a pro-Israel activist from overseas, or any other “usual suspect,” you’re wrong.
