Regarding "Israel's no-Madonna blues", IHT, May 17, 2005: What is really sad about this back-and-forth-innuendo-affair is that it shows once more how and by whom Israel's diplomacy and PR - two tools that, one would think, are more important than ever in the fight against our enemies and for some kind of normalcy - are being handled. It is obvious that - in addition to injust, wrong policies and faulty leadership - more than anything else our own incompetence, political powerplays, and infighting over petty and often nonsensical subjects are to blame for the bad press that Israel receives worldwide. Nevertheless, it remains much easier to simply say that the whole world is anti-Semitic and therefore against us.
