Sundown: The West Bank’s West Bank

Plus Iran’s mind games, The Pixies, and more

Print Email
The Pixies(Village Voice)

• Prime Minister Netanyahu said that, for strategic reasons, Israel would never—even under a peace deal—cede the western border of the Jordan River. Which is of course mostly in the West Bank (that’s why it’s called the West Bank!), and doesn’t border the Green Line. [Haaretz]

• More than in any past year, pro-Israel campus groups are set to counter Israel Apartheid Week. [JTA]

• What the heck is Iran thinking, publicly moving most of its nuclear fuel into above-ground facilities? This may help you understand the mind games. [NYT]

• Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman was questioned by authorities over suspicions that he illegally intervened in a money-laundering investigation against him. [JTA]

• The Austrian Jewish community has condemned the presidential candidacy of far-right Barbara Rosenkranz. But isn’t Rosenkranz a Jewish name? (Yes, I am joking.) [Vos Iz Neias?]

• The Israeli human rights group Boycott! has called on The Pixies to cancel an upcoming gig in Tel Aviv. This, despite the fact that “some of us are huge fans and would love to see your show.” [Haaretz]
