Israeli Super Model `Bar Refaeli Tells Pink Floyd To Yank Her Picture From Stage

Israeli supermodel Bar Refseli was undoubtedly dismayed when she found out that her picture was used in a performance of Pink Floyd in which her picture was used in a slide show. “Roger Waters, you should remove my picture from videos at your concerts. If you’re going to boycott, then go all the way.” the internationally famous model announced on her Twitter account. Bar Refaeli undoubtedly objects to the demonisation of her country, which has become an essential feature of politics as a fashion accessory.

 It's on thing to ditch a handbag or skirt that has gone out of fashion. It's another matter entirely to decide that an entire nation has gone out of fashion. Yet no one gives matters a second thought when Israel, the Jew among nations, is thus singled out. Enemies of Israel are diligent and thorough when it comes to demonising Israel.

 There is a Norwegian web site dedicated to Bob Dylan songs that has barred Israeli visitors from visiting the site.

 I looked for they lyrics of one Bob Dylan song on the Bob web site that the Norwegian wen site did not have listed. Following are some of the lyrics.

Well, the neighborhood bully, he’s just one man
His enemies say he’s on their land
They got him outnumbered about a million to one
He got no place to escape to, no place to run
He’s the neighborhood bully

The neighborhood bully just lives to survive
He’s criticized and condemned for being alive
He’s not supposed to fight back, he’s supposed to have thick skin
He’s supposed to lay down and die when his door is kicked in
He’s the neighborhood bully

The neighborhood bully been driven out of every land
He’s wandered the earth an exiled man
Seen his family scattered, his people hounded and torn
He’s always on trial for just being born
He’s the neighborhood bully

Apparently, starting a country from which Jews are banned and in which Christians are persecuted does not rank as a high priority with political fashionistas. Neither do Congolese war atrocities, oppression of women in Muslim countries or human rights violations in China.Israel, the Jew among nations, is judged by a standard all its own.  More significantly, Israel is expected to fight by gentleman's rules in a world where dirty fighting is the norm.

In a world riddled with hypocrisy, it is a pleasure to be hated by such morally inconsistent, superficial and morally tone deaf people. in times like ours, being hated can be a badge of honour.
