Occasional reflections on Life, the World, and Mathematics


In a Jerusalem cafe the other day I picked up a right-wing Israeli newspaper that proclaimed on the front page Netanyahu’s  intention to “boycott” those countries that disapprove of Israel’s settlement policies (i.e., all of them). No mention of “divestment”, but definitely sanctions are in the offing. Perhaps Netanyahu’s policy should be called “BS”.

While threatening to withdraw Israel’s assistance to Senegal, they are kindly agreeing to continue accepting US aid, but presumably only because the US abstained rather than voting in favour of the UN resolution. But those Americans are on thin ice if they want to keep the Israeli international aid flowing.
