My daughter’s voice - FT.com

My daughter’s voice - FT.com | Humanity | Scoop.it
My daughter and I are driving to the mall and I hear two voices that sound very much alike. One says, “Right turn in 200 feet”; the other one asks, “What are we doing next?” Both are flat, uninflected monotones.

Refusing to play the racism game

Refusing to play the racism game | Humanity | Scoop.it

The author is the New Israel Fund's director of communications and the founder of Let's Kick Racism Out of Israeli Football


There’s nothing new in the abuse that opposing soccer fans inflicted on Hapoel Tel Aviv’s Toto Tamuz in Monday’s game against Beitar Jerusalem in the capital’s Teddy Stadium. The shouts of “kushi” (the “n” word), monkey calls, and throwing bananas – black players in Israeli soccer have been enduring this sort of thing ever since they began playing here. Not only foreign players, but Ethiopian Jewish immigrants like Baruch Dego get the treatment. (The Nigerian-born Tamuz was adopted by an Israeli mother at the age 2.)

What is new about this latest outpouring of filth is that Israeli soccer players were moved to rebel against it, to finally say “enough.” The Hapoel Tel Aviv team, backed by the club’s management, announced that the next time they encounter racist expressions directed at their players, they will all walk off the field.

The European Left and Its Trouble With Jews

The European Left and Its Trouble With Jews | Humanity | Scoop.it
The left once led the fight against Nazism. Now it coddles anti-Semites.

....In recent years, there has been an increased blurring of the distinction between Jew, Zionist and Israeli. Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of the militant group Hezbollah, famously commented: “If we searched the entire world for a person more cowardly, despicable, weak and feeble in psyche, mind, ideology and religion, we would not find anyone like the Jew. Notice I do not say the Israeli.”....

'They should've packed their insulin when fleeing genocide'

'They should've packed their insulin when fleeing genocide' | Humanity | Scoop.it

Just in time for Thanksgiving, a Winnipeg satirist has a video on YouTube "thanking" the federal immigration minister for taking away health benefits from refugees.
Ari Sara Kreindler said her song and slide show Thank You Jason Kenney was inspired by his policy and a petition thanking him for it that was posted on his website.
"When I first heard about the cuts to refugee health care, the policy seemed mean-spirited and potentially damaging to the most vulnerable people," said Kreindler, a provincial health policy researcher who has a PhD. The move is expected to save each Canadian 59 cents a year.
The woman, who's studied at Oxford and has a love for musical theatre, wanted to respond.
"But it seemed too heartbreaking for satire."
Then, Immigration Minister Jason Kenney's personal website posted a petition that thanked him for making the cuts.
