Today is February 19, 2019 -
Presented by Ken Bob… You want something topical? Well here you go! The next Jewish Public Affairs Forum session is entitled, “Politics, Politics and Politics – Israel and the United States.” As I am sure many, if not all, of you are aware, Israeli general elections will be held on April 9 and the campaign is under way. Prime Minister Netanyahu, while under threat of indictment for bribery and facing his biggest challenge in years, is still currently favored to be re-elected. When we meet two weeks before the election I will introduce you to some new political players and catch you up to date on the “state of play.” All attendees will receive an updated “Ken Bob Political Scorecard” with all of the parties and leaders.
Meanwhile, here In the United States newly-elected members of Congress have voiced strident criticism of Israeli policies, with two supporting the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. All of this has raised questions about traditional bi-partisan support for Israel as a presidential election campaign begins.
Put the session on your calendar and we will discuss all of this and more on March 26. RSVP to email@example.com or call 631-427-1089
