The (virtual or real) birth of Palestine is largely based on Jew-hatred. Otherwise, the President of China would be booed and we would be assisting to the birth of Tibet as a UN member-state, applauding the Dalai Lama. In one word, it's called hypocricy. - Comment - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Sure there will be a half-empty hemicycle, and among those whp stay, there will be those staying just to stand up and noisily leave, others to boo their way (almost as loud as at the Knesset :) and yet, after the bullying, the humiliation, the burning of the efige of Judas once again, as in a medieval fest, Netanyahu will feel eactly as invulnerable, and we Jews, your brothers and sisters (whether you hate us or not) will be the ones depressed, desperate, longing for a leader who can say the truths that are more nuanced, deeper and truer than anything I've ever heard Netanyahu say. One of them is that Viva Palestine is largely based on Jew-hatred and the fact Israel is tiny. Otherwise, the President of China would be booed and we would be assisting to the birth of Tibet as a state.

For French teen studying in Israel, it's all about being a Jew among Jews

Arrivals / Departures: Anti-Semitism in France is certainly not the reason why this teen chose to come to Israel; an Israeli whose relatives perished in the Holocaust finds living in Berlin 'perfectly fine.'
