Eine Kleine Nichtmusik

Witty and pertinent observations on matters of great significance OR Incoherent jottings on total irrelevancies OR Something else altogether OR All of the above

One day they'll grow their own food and won't have to appropriate other people's. Because they'll have to.

Twenty-six former EU leaders have called for a tougher line on illegal settlement building.

About bloody time too.

You have to laugh at Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Ygal Palmor with his denial that settlement products are mislabelled. Er, they say "Produce of Israel" and not even the Israeli giovernment lays claim to the Occupied Territories as being part of Israel. Well, apart from East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, but hey, every one has to have a dream, right? ("Next year in East Jerusalem.") Is the Israeli government so hard up for professional liars that it is reduced to going "LA LA LA CAN'T HEAR YOU IT'S ISRAELI IF WE SAY IT IS NEVER MIND WHERE IT COMES FROM".?

Mind you, I suppose that's been the basis of Israeli foreign policy for the past forty years, so maybe he's just keeping on message.
