Finally, I haven’t posted much on these types of stories, but Israel’s descent into the most extreme chauvinism seems to be accelerating. This is Gideon Levy reporting on the alleged “rape” case – an Arab convicted of rape because the Jewish woman he had sex with later found out he was Arab. Those who claim to love Israel should be the ones most disturbed by these kinds of stories, because Israeli society is becoming so radicalised that the country is become unrecognisable. Is this the country you love? Is this what you want to see from it?
