 IT WAS a misty morning as we drove through the green hills of the old English countryside. Fresh from spending the night at our “adoptive parents” Jill and Ed’s house, we made our way to the Lake District, not far from the border with Scotland. Feeling myself breathing the chapters of Jane Austen, and hearing Sir William Wallace, I looked out at the low hills, surrounded by ponds and dotted with sheep. I turned to my friend Naftali and said, “My God, I believe them. They really do love us.” Naftali looked at me. “I believe them too.”

A few months prior, Naftali, an Israeli medical student, asked me to join him on a trip to the United Kingdom. The purpose was to meet with various Jewish communities and debate BDS activists on campuses. However, our hosts turned out to be pro-Israel Christians whom Naftali had met in Jerusalem.
