Gil Hoffman laments that the praise for Israel in US Vice President Mike Pence’s speech was not reported abroad, where coverage of his Knesset speech focused instead on the message of the Arab MKs who protested the address. He says that an opportunity has been missed. He also expresses concern about plans to close the Israeli consulate in Atlanta and embassy in Ireland.
He then interviews Eyal Biram, a a recently discharged IDF captain, who founded a social initiative called “ISRAELis.” ISRAELis, is an apolitical nonprofit organization that aims is to improve Israel’s image in the world through young post-army women and men traveling abroad.
