The Prince and the President
The news, well at least Israeli cyberspace news, was full of Paula and the President.
The same size crowd certainly did not come out to see the Crown Prince of Denmark.
At first I was going to make jokes about how he looked like a regular guy from Tel Aviv.
And how this official royal visit was a handshake only, very proper no kissing occasion.
The Prince and the President did the official handshake and smiled for cameras.
But then they sat down with flags behind them, and
President Peres told the Prince how we would never forget what Denmark did to save
Danish Jews in World War II.
The Prince in his reply mentioned the little boats that 70 years ago ferried Jews away
from the Nazis and to safety in Sweden.
Not funny after all.
That was a serious story.
A story that should that be remembered and shared.
Too bad the Queen and King of Denmark have not been to Israel.
But people are still talking about Paula.
