I have been experiencing some serious writer’s-block, trying to come up with my first post after more than a month-long absence. Then the Israeli government (or was it the police department?) did something so priceless that I figured I don’t even have to write anything. Only direct your attention to this.
Whatever you think about the prudence of deporting the pro-Palestinian activists set to fly into Israel and, supposedly, engage in peaceful collaboration with Palestinian citizens and groups, you have to admit this letter is awesome:
We appreciate your choosing to make Israel the object of your humanitarian concerns. We know there were many other worthy choices.”
A great little chapter in that never-ending series, Funny Jews Against Serious Anti-Semitism.
