Trump joins the race: 'I'm no apprentice on Israel'

Trump joins the race: 'I'm no apprentice on Israel'

IN THE middle of a phone interview with Jewish News Service on June 26, billionaire real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump leaves his desk to scan the wall of his office for awards he has received from the Jewish community.

WASHINGTON — Jewish groups demanded an apology from NPR host Diane Rehm for saying that Sen. Bernie Sanders has dual Israeli-American citizenship. “Such a statement is not only factually incorrect, but has no place in such an interview,” the ADL’s national director, Abraham Foxman, said in a letter last week to National Public Radio. “It is deeply troubling to think that a well-respected media outlet like NPR would apparently rely on unsubstantiated information from the Internet in i...

New York honors Muslim hero

New York honors Muslim heroNEW YORK — The Muslim employee who saved Jewish shoppers during a terrorist attack on a Paris kosher supermarket was honored in New York. Lassana Bathily was presented with an official city proclamation on June 12 by Mayor Bill de Blasio for his actions in the Hyper Cacher siege on Jan. 9.
