The need to preempt Iran and export gas to Egypt was the reason the government gave to push through its controversial plan for Israel's natural gas. Now, this reason may no longer exist.03:48 31.08.15 | 0 comments
A headline and charges of "racism" against Israel will always attract the baying of the hounds i.e. those reflexive Israel bashers. But the article says nothing about the criteria that the authors of this report used, or how they decided something was "racist". In fact, many of the examples cited would be more appropriately called "common sense" (why should any state fund events that promote that its Independence Day is a day of mourning) or "nationalism", and could equally apply to extreme left wing, anti-Zionist Jewish critics of Israel. That may or may not be wise policy, but it is not "racism".
