Haaretz's Interview Style

From the popular weekly column at the airport by Liat Elkayam as she interviews Christina Morente, 43, from Puebla, Mexico; arriving from Naples, Italy:

Hello, can I ask what you’ll be doing in Israel?

I am a devout Christian, and for me you are the Chosen People, and every time I land here my heart pounds – everything is super-wonderful.

Thank you, but you’re exaggerating.

Look how you’ve survived over the years, Am Israel hai! [The Jewish people lives!] I’ve been to 65 countries in my life, and Norway is my favorite among the normal countries. But Israel is not one of the normal countries. It’s supernatural.

We can agree on “not normal.”

The way to make friends for Israel.
