Outrage at paper

RECENTLY published in the Israeli press was an article in which reporters were asked to nominate “their most hated Israeli song”.

Selected were Hatikva and Yerushalayim Shel Zahav (Jerusalem the Golden).

The article was accompanied by an illustration showing some of Israel’s founding fathers, including David Ben Gurion, Yigal Alon, Yitzhak Sadeh and Menachem Begin, hanging from a gallows.

This newspaper, founded in 1918, is the country’s longest-running paper and has a left-wing stance on domestic policies and the Palestinian situation.

You do not have to be a supporter of the right-wing Netanyahu government to be outraged and — not surprisingly — there has been a public outcry.

No doubt the so-called Jews of Jewdas will be all in favour of the article.
