From the Prime Minister of Israel’s twitter feed, July 3:

PM #Netanyahu brought @PeterSGreenberg to Dolphin Reef in Eilat for @CBSNews show highlighting tourism in #Israel

Owly Images

That’s Netanyahu feeding dolphins three days ago, apparently alongside Peter S. Greenberg, travel editor of CBS News. Full sized image at the link.

From Greenberg’s twitter feed, yesterday:

    מאמצי קרי

    לא נשאו פרי.

    העולם מאשים
    את ישראל.

    יהודים צעירים,
    שפעם התגאו בישראל,
    מתרחקים ממנה.

    הצעירים שלנו
    מחפשים עתיד
    ומצביעים ברגליים.

    Kerry’s efforts
    Remain fruitless.

    The world
    Accuses Israel.

    Young Jews,
    Once proud of Israel,
    Distance themselves.

    Our own young,
    Seeking a future,
    Vote with their feet.

      One should note that “Kerry” rhymes with the Hebrew “Perry” a poetic form of “P’ree” meaning “fruit” (as in “fruitless”).

      I cannot resist an off-color but obvious association with the Rabbinic Hebrew meaning of the word “kerry” meaning “ejaculant”.
      Make of that what you wish.

      You guys and the BDS should make the biggest promotion for tourist to come and visit Israel.
      As only in that way , they will be able to see the terrible Apartheid and maybe understand what you cannot convince artist so far.
      That would be your greatest achievement.
      Go for it.

        Clearly, you don’t understand what the “B” in BDS stands for. We don’t want Israel to make money by tourism.

        Just out of curiosity, which party do you vote for?

        Lame sarcasm doesn’t really work for you, does it?

        The type of people who would visit Israel ‘even more’ due to BDS’s visibility and existence – are the type of people who were already going to visit Israel.

        They are already pro-Israel ‘right or wrong’ types. True believers.

        So who cares?

        BDS is supported by Palestinian civil society.

        You and other Zionist Jews, thieving settlers and war criminals in the Israeli army and government simply want NO RESISTANCE whatsoever to Jewish colonialism.

        Not going to happen, chump.

        I don’t want to visit Israel. Anyone who wishes to visit any part of Palestine is forced to go thru Israel/Israelis, and is only permitted to enter Palestine – or denied that right – by them. Tell me yrn, how many other countries on this small planet wield such power over another?

    The photo looks like Netanyahu does a Nazi salute. He recruits the dolphins for his ethnic nationalist project.

    Glad I visited before.

    I’ll wait until it becomes 1S1P1v for my next visit. No way, no how would I go right now.

    BDS til then.
