Biryonim – Hooligans – Win

Justice Richard Goldstone - child of South African Jews, opponent of
apartheid, human rights advocate, author of the UN report Operation
Cast Lead on Israeli war crimes in Gaza, and grandfather - has been disinvited from his own grandson's bar
mitzvah after protests by South African Zionists. Shame.

"What
have these people come to? What sort of Judaism is this? Do these
people even care
about religious values?  Do they know what it means to be a Jew? Of
course they don't have a religion in that sense because their real
religion is Israel." - Richard Silverstein
