Bums and Babes
Here's a link to Ahmadinejad's speech at the United Nations yesterday. In view of my last few of posts, it's mandated that we raise alarms about the man's anti-Semitism — even if we don't care to do it in the company of Sarah Palin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rxSN-rIazjo
And then there's Israel's attempt to change its image. As I wrote in my "Viewpoint" piece in the current Jewish Currents, "Israel has done little to cultivate its state-to-state relationships, except through arms sales. . . . The model that Iran presents — armed, isolated, and indifferent to hostile world opinion — needs to be contained, not emulated, by Israel."
So here we go. Someone in the PR department must be reading Jewish Currents. They've given us babes instead of bombs. Ahad Ha'am (not to mention Golda Meir) must be spinning in the grave.
