An American Jew donated 100 rifle sights to an Israeli army regiment. The advanced laser sights, worth over $50,000, were received by Israel’s 101st airborne regiment this week from a New York benefactor, military sources said Thursday, declining to give the man’s name. The donation was brokered by Ephraim Sneh, a Labor Party lawmaker and retired army brigadier general.
