Deeply saddened this morning to receive the news that Uri Avnery has passed away. Avnery was a veteran peace activist and first ever Israeli to meet Yasser Arafat and seek a Palestinian state as a way of resolving the Israe-Palestine conflict.

Scoop by : During their meeting 2 months ago, Jordanian King Abdullah warned Trump that Israel will lose its Jewish character under a 1-state-solution. Trump, half-jokingly: "That makes sense, [if this happens] in a few years the name of Israel's PM would be Muhammad"

We talk about Nazis in the White House because there are actual Nazis in the actual White House.

This time, I was let go after five minutes. But next time, after the media attention following the detentions of and fades? After this becomes more normal, and the media cycle can no longer muster much interest? I don't know.

So this was obviously less intense in many ways than my experience three weeks ago, but also feels more intense in a few ways. Mostly, it's knowing that my passport now flags something when I try to enter the country.

And I was just called in. Handed my passport. "I can go through? That's it?" The border control agent nodded. I am now through. So that's all for this time.

I am detained again at Ben Gurion Airport. This time I was in the US for 6 days for a Yiddish cultural studies fellowship. Woman at the passport control: "I am forced to detain you." Me: "Really?" She smiles apologetically: "It's not me. It's the State of Israel."

Did you... read the article? Aug 18
This week's Torah reading includes the part where Moses tells the Jews that God insists on due process and equality before the law. "Justice, justice shall you pursue." Favor neither rich nor poor. I always get such a thrill hearing those words read from a Torah scroll.

The Jews as a disloyal fifth column is a common anti-Semitic trope. In fact it’s one of the types of antisemitism in the IHRA definition.

This isn’t a discussion. It isn’t a debate. I want nothing to do with anyone that tries to dismiss antisemitic hate.

I’ve defended Tonge over her Palestine views in years gone by but this is just awful, awful, from her. Straight up victim-blaming. (She’s no longer a Lib Dem though, tbf to the Lib Dems...)

The irony of Israel recently crowning itself as the “Jewish Nation-State” at the same time as it is turning away increasing numbers of Jews due to their political views should not be lost on anyone.
