Editorial: Navajo Nation creates strong partnership with Israel
Posted: Friday, December 14, 2012
"As the Navajo Nation President Ben Shelly and the First lady travel through Israel, they are setting the tone for the Nation- a global opportunity is now in reach for the largest Tribe in the U.S. this will brand the Tribe as a viable partner in global progress.
This partnership with Israel is what will set the tone for other future Foreign and International outreach that will Brand the Navajo Nation as a true sovereign nation and to become a global leader at the table of global interest in future policy.
This notion that we should not let our Tribal leaders travel to other Nations, is ludicrous. This daffy notion that leaders should not spend Tribal Resources is even more absurd. We might as well say, “Lets hitch hike to Israel” which is even more maniacal, because you can’t."
