Heartbreak: Iran’s “A Separation” Beats Israeli “Footnote” at the Oscars

In pre-Oscar television interviews, actors Shlomo Bar-Aba and Lior Ashkenazi, stars of the Israeli Oscar nominated "Footnote," which last night became the tenth Israeli nominee to not win the big prize – were telling anyone who would listen that it was definitely going to be Iran this year. And they were right. The Hollywood elite which decides these things gave the nod to Iran's "A Separation," from what we hear a fantastic family drama, and Director Asghar Farhadi has taken home the Oscar for best foreign language film. While Director Joseph Cedar, an observant Jew, went home empty handed for the second time in his career. Bummer.

If you have nothing better to do and you're member of the Park Slope Food Co-op, you should try to attend their Monday night meeting this week, when a group within the mostly organic-food loving, bicycle riding, inoffensive crowd of lefty New Yorkers, will be attempting to add the food co-op to the campaign of Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) against Israel.

Livni Stakes Political Future on Yeshiva Students’ IDF Service

The first Israeli pol to be taking a ride on the back of the Supreme Court's decision to kill the Tal Law is stating her motivation bluntly: "I'm sick and tired of hearing that it's impossible to implement the law, because the Haredim or the Arabs don't want to join."

Why Are Israelis Trimmer than Americans? Their Chocolate Costs Double

MK Danon: Stop Arab MKs from Joining Qatar Anti-Israel Conference

Qatar is going all out to assemble a major conference next week, with 350 representatives from Arab and Islamic countries, who will discuss "the legal status of Jerusalem before and after the Israeli occupation."

Is this a fun region or what?

Oscars to Sacha Baron Cohen: Stay Home

If they ban him, does he not bleed, at least a little, on the inside? The Oscar folks appear to have had it up to here with the loveable, although as lowbrow as they come, British-Jewish star. Or maybe it was all his own idea. You figure it out.

Iran to SC: Blame Israel for Absolutely Everything

On occasion it's nice to read good things about one's country, reflected through the eyes of a sworn enemy.
