“The front page of the New York Times Sunday Review featured one of the most biased, poorly informed, and historically inaccurate columns about the conflict between Israel and Palestine ever published by a mainstream newspaper.

“’I had no idea how much of an impact it would have on the Jewish community,’ Raisman said Tuesday, describing her 2012 gold medal-winning routine, which included a component to the music of ‘Hava Nagila,’ the Jewish folk song.

‘I didn’t realize at the time I was representing not only the United States but the Jewish community,’ Raisman told the Lion of Judah conference, held this year at a Florida resort. ‘I received a letter from a Holocaust survivor saying she never imagined in her life seeing a young girl performing to ‘Hava Nagila’ in front of the world and see her win for it.'”
