Wine Industry’s ‘Wine Spectator’ Praises Israel’s Wines

Tuesday, September 27th, 2016

The venerable sage of the international wine industry, ‘Wine Spectator’ magazine, has devoted its October 2016 cover story to “The Wines of Israel: Surprising Quality from an Emerging Region.”

Forty Israeli wines earned a score of 88 out of 100 by the publication, with 75 percent rated at more than 90 percent, and only two in the non-kosher category.

The top mark (93) went to Tzora’s Misty Hills Judean Hills 2013 vintage.

Wine Spectator predicts, however, that the Israeli wine industry will maintain a small place “on the world stage… for the foreseeable future.”

Israel produces 10 million cases annually from 13,500 acres of vineyard — one fourth of California’s Sonoma Valley.

Israeli Police Caught Violently Attacking Settler in Graphic Video

Friday, August 16th, 2013

A Petach Tikva court has ordered the immediate release of Boaz Albert of Yitzhar.

Albert, a father of 6, had received an administrative order to stay out of the Shomron and away from his home in Yitzhar, but he illegally returned to be with his family and tend to his vineyard. The family has not been told why there is an adminstrative order distancing him from his home and the Shomron.

The police occasionally use distancing orders against Jews in the Shomron without explanation and based on secret evidence. It is almost impossible to fight these orders once given.

Overnight, police burst into the Albert home and violently beat him up, shocked him multiple times with a taser gun, and arrested him, even as he did not resist at all.

The “Yassam” police attacked him in front of his children who were traumatized by what they say.

Despite Albert being completely passive and not resisting arrest, as well as begging them to stop, the police shocked him multiple times with the taser gun.

In the video below, you can hear, once removed from the house, how the police resume tasering Boaz Albert, as neighbors yell out to the police to stop as he isn’t doing anything.
