I just saw you on MSMBC. My Grandparents are holocuast survivers and I'd like to share their story. Please contact me at the email address sent or on my cell# 646-262-2379

Didn't say anything I didn't already know after having lived in Israel for a decade. Except for one thing. He didn't mention all the Jewish refugees from the Arab countries, or what happened to their lands and properties. A typical oversight.
