Algemeiner Editor-in-Chief: At Age 70, Israel Has Entered New Era of ‘Maturity and Independence’
At the age of 70, the State of Israel has entered a new era of “maturity and independence,” the editor-in-chief of The Algemeiner said in a recent television appearance.
Speaking as a member of a JBS discussion panel, Dovid Efune said, “I think we’re starting to see the realization…of what we’ve always wanted Israel to be and become. And that is to take a place among the nations of the world that is respected, that is equal, that is sought after.”
Efune highlighted the ongoing diplomatic renaissance Israel is currently experiencing.
“It’s actual quite unbelievable,” Efune noted. “For so many years, Israel was country that people sympathized with. It was a plucky state…There was a moral reason why it was so important to support Israel.”
Now however, Efune said, “people want Israel’s company, they want the relationship with Israel because of what Israel can give to them. And because there’s a real two-way street here.”
