Apologies for the blog lag. I owe you many many cartoons and perhaps even some original writing. In the mean time, check out this ad for Columbia Sportswear, appealing to settlers, which appeared in last week’s Jerusalem Post. Didi Rimirez has a good post on this:

Note the description at the bottom “for active work in various regions, including outposts.” If we have any doubt what “outposts” the ad is referring to, see the same ad in Hebrew, which ran on the same day in the Friday Political Supplement of Makor Rishon, a right-wing weekly. The Hebrew translation of “outposts” there is “gvaot” (hills) a euphemism for the illegal outposts populated by the “hilltop youth”, notorious for their violence against Palestinian civilians.

All of this on the tails of Netanyahu’s settlement ‘moratorium’ farce, which nearly ruined my Turkey Day.

Oy.
