The Day In Israel: Mon July 20th, 2009

Click refresh to see new updates during the day

The Prime Minister’s Office has ripped palestinian negotiator Saeb “Massacre” Erekat for meeting with Iranian Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki, saying it stands in stark contrast to the palestinian refusal to negotiate with the Netanyahu government.

I say it is entirely consistent with Fatah’s true aim to wipe Israel off the map, albeit slowly over time.

Updates (Israel time; most recent at top)

9:50PM: The Melbourne Film festival has refused to give in to blackmail from anti-Israel British director Ken Loach.

Loach demanded that the festival reject the Israeli Embassy’s sponsorship of Tatia Rosenthal to visit the festival to answer questions about her animation feature $9.99, but the festival organizers refused, saying that they would not bow to “blackmail,” the Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported.

7:06PM: Please tell me this wasn’t deliberate.

7:00PM: Former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert could be in trouble.

6:58PM: Weird referrer of the day: The left-wing site Grateful Child has linked to here, presumably on the assumption that my inclusion of the Bilin protest video in yesterday’s post was indicative of my support for such a protest, rather than just a matter of including another example of Hairstyle Man going bananas.

9:28AM: From skinhead to hippy: It looks like KKK member Micky Louis Mayon, who sought refuge from the law in Israel of all places, underwent quite a transformation.

At least physically speaking.

Enjoy your deportation, shaggy.

6:00AM: Here’s yesterday’s Maccabiah Games newscast, featuring our favorite wooden model presenters.

5:53AM: The Jerusalem Post reports that Bangladeshi journalist and peace activist Salah Uddin Shoaib Choudhury, who has called for interfaith dialogue and for normalizing relations between Muslim countries and Israel, has been investigated by Bangladeshi authorities on charges of sedition, treason and insulting religious belief, and could face the death penalty.
