* Haaretz reports
that the Supreme Court is actually making Avoda Ivrit more desirable by closing the loopholes allowing Jews in Judea and Samaria to exploit their Hamas-voting neighbors, outsourcing their tax evasion and taking advantage of their proximity to a mafia-run third world empire (my words, not theirs).
* Rabbi Yuval Cherlow, who reportedly did not stop at telling his students they did not HAVE to refuse orders, but told them they HAVE to obey, says Avoda Ivrit is Nazism. Brought to you by Jpost
and the racists at RamFM, the clueless, yet entertaining South African-run station broadcasting in English out of Ramallah.
* There is once again an Avoda Ivrit web site
! The New Israel Fund, through its proxy, Mossawa closed down the old Israel-based Avoda Ivrit directory
, with its webmaster replacing the site with an apology. The new site could use some reader participation.
* Hey, even professional settler-hater Jeffrey Goldberg says he once dabbled in Avoda Ivrit (not in 'Nam, of course)
: "In the late nineteen-eighties, I worked for a time on a kibbutz in the Jezreel Valley, southeast of Haifa. I was a great believer in the philosophy known as avoda ivrit—the idea that Jews will redeem their land and themselves by hard physical labor."
- an art studio in Tel Aviv. Nice.
