Israel has set out ‘red lines’ that Iran must not cross. Unlike hockey, it’s not always so easy to tell when they’ve been crossed — and what to do about it.
Toronto native Danny Spodek grew up with “hockey night” in Canada. Now, thanks to his efforts, there is such a thing as hockey night in Israel, too.
