Melanie Philips' Brilliant, But Too Polite, IBA Interview
The Melanie Philips interview is the best thing I've seen on Israeli TV in a very long time. By calling Israeli Hasbara Information a "joke," she shocked the veteran Israeli newscaster Yaakov Achimeir, who then tried to convince her that a Pseudostinian aka Palestinian sic State would be a good solution. I wish she had been less polite, but then maybe they would have censored out her reply.
It was a real pleasure to hear common sense on Israeli TV News. No surprise that it came from a woman!
