“Israel is a Jewish state and Jews have superior rights,” says the chief rabbinate’s spokesman.
I cut that in mid-sentence Its not because the end of the sentence makes the first half any better, but only because the ending is somewhat surprising:
“But the Karaites are not Jewish.”
I'm not going to argue whether the Karaites are Jewish or not. However, what kind of imbicile would ever say to an international paper (the Economist no less) that Jews have superior rights? This Worst Hasbara of the Day Award is well deserved.
