Birthright Israel’s Palestinian Doppelganger

Palestinian nationalism emerged in response to Zionism, so it’s not entirely surprising that Birthright Israel would eventually get a Palestinian doppelganger.

The Jerusalem Post reports:

Birthright Israel, of course, is considerably more pluralistic when it comes to ideology. Groups that sponsor Birthright Israel trips run the gamut from religious right to dovish left to ironic hipster.
