2019 American Embassy, Jerusalem, Independence Celebration

What a difference!


In the past my husband and I had been invited to the receptions held by the American Consulate in Jerusalem. They predated US President Donald Trump, and that was when the American Government had its embassy in Tel Aviv.

Last night's party was amazing and so totally different from the American Independence Day events we had attended in the past. First of all, this was an official embassy event and in Jerusalem, in Binyanei Hauma. All the food was kosher, including the menu, meat, fish and parve, instead of a table or two of kosher food. In prior years we'd see lots of Arabs, a few men in kippot, and sometimes I seemed to be the only woman who covers her hair.  The 2019 celebration felt Jewish and Israeli, even YESHA.


Yes, my husband and I





Here is Jerusalem Mayor Moshe Lion with me and my husband. The mayor took the selfie of us and publicized it.

The YESHA crowd, some of us at least


The String Chords Bridge was lit up for the occasion.
Here in Israel, we are very happy with the policies of US President Donald Trump. Last night's event was one of the reasons. He's the most pro-Israel American President ever. That's the truth.

Harvard Law Professor Alan M. Dershowitz said:

“It is true that the American legal system
derives much of its content from the Old Testament
[also known as the Jewish Bible or Tanach]…

When we were growing up, my friends and I
would take great pride in discovering the
Jewish sources of American laws, such as:

the privilege against self-incrimination,
the requirement of two witnesses for certain
types of crime, and the very idea that punishment
must be proportionate to the crime committed.”

“As Israeli NGO Palestinian Media Watch
has documented, P.A. [Palestinian Authority]

payments to terrorists and their families,
even if it comes at the expense of ordinary,
law-abiding Palestinian citizens.”
