  • Gaza escalation holds both promise and peril for Netanyahu

    By jwadmin on March 29, 2019
    By SAM SOKOL JERUSALEM (JTA) – Benjamin Netanyahu’s week had been carefully scripted: Less than one month away from Israeli elections, the prime minister was traveling to Washington, D.C., to meet with President Donald Trump.
