Ayin L’Tzion Tzofia: Feeling Israel’s Pain

11/20/2012

On the second day of Rosh Hashanah (which seems now like one hundred years ago, so much has happened since then), I delivered a sermon about the uniquely critical dangers facing Israel in the aftermath of the Arab Spring, and the ongoing turmoil in Syria.

Meg Ryan, the "cultural intifada" and stupid PR tricks

First the term was used by Palestinians, referring to artsy events meant as protests against Israel's occupation of Gaza and the West Bank; now Israelis and their supporters here are using “cultural intifada” to describe the accelerating trend of pop music and Hollywood stars who've decided to boycott Israel.

Cool; I'm sure Israel's brilliant PR mavens are patting themselves on the back for co-opting the phrase .
