BBC Radio this morning remembered the 1984 rescue of thousands of Ethiopian Jews from likely death to safe haven in Israel. The story is a vivid reminder of the importance of that refuge for world Jewry.
Incredibly, this country’s Democrats are poised to complete their party’s “fundamental transformation” from that of Harry Truman and “Scoop” Jackson — American patriots who helped give birth to and sustained the modern state of Israel and a vital ally.
