Israeli Flag Located At Ha’aretz Conference!

It is a known thing that if you are at a conference held by Ha’aretz, you’ll be hard pressed to find an Israeli flag. Or at least one that wasn’t removed.

Well yesterday one was located.

Israel’s social media was atwitter on Sunday after controversial performance artist Ariel Bronz went onstage at a cultural conference and inserted an Israeli flag into his backside.

Bronz, during his performance at an event hosted by Haaretz newspaper at the Tel Aviv Museum, proceeded to pelt audience members with oranges as part of his act.

After some spectators booed and threw the oranges back at Bronz, who was clad in high heels and a short pink skirt, organizers requested that he leave the stage.

At that point, Bronz turned his back to the audience and proceeded to insert a small Israeli flag on a stick.

Ushers rushed to remove him from the stage as he strutted about with the flag still deeply embedded.

The event was also attended by Culture and Sport Minister Miri Regev, although she had already left the auditorium before Bronz’s performance.

After learning of the incident Regev said she will investigate the possibility of prosecuting Bronz.

“I instructed the director general of my ministry to examine the legal aspects of this shocking act and prosecute its perpetrator,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

Bronz told Army Radio that he had not planned the flag prank in advance, but acted in the heat of the moment as a protest against the “gagging of mouths in the country.”

I feel like gagging just reading this. If only he’d set fire to the flag.

Meanwhile, rumor has it Roger Waters really wishes he was there, and DouchebloggerTM Richard Silverstein will implore his readers to donate to Bronz.

Update: The Jerusalem post now reports it was a white flag, and not an Israeli one. I would hate to have been the guy to have made that determination.
