Israel Pulls Expat Ads
NEW YORK (JTA) — Israeli Prime
Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is can-
celing an ad campaign aimed at luring
Israeli expatriates home that some
American Jews have found offensive.
The ads, produced by Israel's
Ministry of Immigrant Absorption,
attempt to convey the message that
the children and families of Israeli
expats will not have Israeli identities
if they stay in the diaspora.
This week, the Jewish Federations
of North America called the ads
"insulting," and the head of the Anti-
Defamation League said they were

"demeaning!'
In one of the ads, the young
daughter of Israeli expats sits with
her parents while video-chatting
with her grandparents in Israel, who
have a lighted menorah in the back-
ground. When the grandparents ask
the girl what holiday it is, she says,
"Christmas!" The tagline: "They will
always be Israeli. Their kids won't!'
In another ad, a dozing Israeli
expat father is deaf to his son's calls
of "Daddy!" until the kid finally says
"Abba!" The tagline: "Before Abba'
turns into 'Daddy, it's time to come
back to Israel!'
