Another Blockade Crops Up in Israel

Swan vs. swan

The other Israeli blockade.(Haaretz)

In recent weeks, a pair of white European swans at Ramat Gan’s Safari Park [outside Tel Aviv] have been refusing to let the black Australian swans enter the safari’s pond and swim there.

The “blockade” launched by the white swans has been particularly hard on the black swans as the mercury climbed over the past few days.

Oh, I’m sure this couldn’t get more ridiculous.

No, no wait:

“If this doesn’t stop soon,” Goldstein said, “we’ll have to find a solution for the black swans in order to restore tranquility to their lives. In the meantime we are trying all sorts of intermediary solutions to open the water channels to them. It’s funny to say, but the caretakers are using peace activists to deal with this.”

Yeah, there it is.
