Posted March 11, 2012, at 4:43 p.m.

Working as an educator at Hebrew University High School for the past three years, I’ve had the privilege to teach the next generation of Jerusalem youth. Like any other job, there are good days and bad days, but occasionally there are also rewarding days. It is that rare day when …

    Well done Anav.  An inspiration.

      To whom?   The people whose land she advocates confiscating?  The people she advocates bombing?  Perhaps an inspiration to militaristic Zionist but not to the rest of the world.

    It’s all fine and good to visit ones homeland.  A very touching story.  Meanwhile I am sick and tired of Israel’s intransigence regarding peace.  The US has covered Israel’s butt for over 60 years.  It has cost us billions and billions in foreign aid and a great deal of American blood around the mid-East.  What do we get for our support.  Nothing!  Ask for peace.  NO.  Ask for an end to illegal settlement building.  NO.  Then we have AIPAC, an Israeli lobby group staffed by US citizens that crams Israeli interests down the throat of Americans.  It has gotten so bad that if one criticizes them the person is considered anti-American!  Imagine that!  Political groups actually consider the support of a foreign country (Israel) to be a litmus test for potential presidential candidates.  Holy jumpin geez!  I’m not anti-semetic, I’m not pro Palestinian or anyone else.  I am just sick and tired of Israel.  Leave them to it and just say NO America.

      You know nothing of the missed opportunities at the feet of Arafat.

        I don’t care about the missed opportunities at the feet of Arafat.  I’m sick and tired of the whole business and I think it’s time for America to send this child out on it’s own.

    While Anav Silverman poses as a young innocent English teacher  she is primarily a columnist and her columns are biased enough that  one could legitimately call her a paid propagandist.  Today’s  emotional tale of return is, as watch dog says, heartwarming.    Most of her articles are about Jews as oppressed  victims or justification of Jewish violence and  land  and water takings.She is neither even handed or fair in her writings.  

    She has appeared Al Jazeera, BBC Radio, and CBS 2 and has contributed to BBC News, The Philadelphia Bulletin, Front Page Magazine, Bangor Daily News, Maariv, The Jerusalem Post,Ynet News, and other publications.  

    I appreciate the fact that The Bangor Daily New has stopped publishing most of her biased columns.

    An apartheid practicing propagandist trying to put a happy face on the land larceny her tribe has engaged in since Joshua marched on Jericho.
