Sundown: Soros on Settlers

Lobbying for lobbying, hot dogs, and more

Print Email

• George Soros’s International Crisis Group published a report on Israel’s religious right, acknowledging its “deep roots” but calling for the settlements it backs to be “reined in”. (The report notes that the 10 percent of Israelis, but 20 percent of Israeli first graders, are ultra-Orthodox.) [Arutz Sheva]
• Israeli rabbis, including the Chief Sephardic Rabbi, asked prominent American rabbis and Jewish leaders to “make use of your political power to lobby the American authorities” to support settlements. [Haaretz]
• Israel’s new ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, talks Zionism and the Diaspora with Jeffrey Goldberg. [The Atlantic]
• Quentin Tarantino will visit Israel in September to promote the release of his Inglorious Basterds. The movie is about Jewish-American soldiers who kill lots and lots and lots and lots of Nazis, and don’t even clean up afterward. [Haaretz]
• A vegan advocacy group called Cancer Project is suing Nathan’s Famous and Hebrew National, among other hot-dog makers, to get them to slap a cancer warning on their product. Given what we already do know about hot dogs, would that even dent sales? [AP]
