Aharoni: Israel must untangle its narrative of that of the Palestinians

In order to bolster its public relations efforts abroad, Israel must disentangle its narrative from that of the Palestinians and show the world that there is more to the Jewish state than the Arab-Israeli conflict, Ido Aharoni, consul- general of Israel in New York, told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday.

“The common association of Israel with the Palestinians is a reflection of the fact that the conversation about Israel is historically limited to the geopolitical realities, what I call the unhappy circumstances, of life in the Middle East,” Aharoni said, speaking with reporters and editors in the Post’s newsroom.

“Israel is more than just a conflict, Israel is a real place, it’s a real country, with real people, with real achievements, real accomplishments, real aspirations, and we need to celebrate that,” he asserted.
