    Very laudible -but why why why again and again does it take 60…70 years for Israel to say ‘Thank You’.
    Part of jewish culture was wrapped in the nicities.. the correctness in being able to say please,thank you and I’m sorry.
    Have the Israelis…Israel moved so far from their Jewishness that they cannot bring themselves to say things in a timely manner?
    Israel expects the concern of the world..concern is reciprocal…not reciprocity generations later..or the world’s concern too will be generations too late.
