Embassy feels isolated
If the Israeli Embassy (London) website is anything to go by then
Israel is really feeling isolated in the world.
The Israeli Embassy proudly trumpeted the launch of its new website
recently (http://london.mfa.gov.il). Its front page is splashed
with a photo of Israeli footballer Eyal Berkovic in West Ham kit
embarrassing the British crowd by waving an Israeli flag.
The photo is ancient - at least 4 years old - Berkovic no longer
even plays for West Ham - his last game was in 1999. For the embassy
to dredge up such an old photo the cultural boycott of Israel must
really be hurting...ouch!
"Berk.. if you're gonna pull out a zionist flag from your underwear
during a West Ham game then at least have the decency to burn it!"
