That's 21-year old Hagit Yasou, of Ethiopian origin but from Sderot in the Western Negev, singing in Arabic on Israel's "A Star is Born" talent show. Kind of puts the X Factor into perspective. (H/t The Blank Pages)
What else? Flesh on a broader definition of antisemitism; Roland on postmodernism and the death of solidariy; Greens Engage on Cynthia and Jello; Martin on Grayling, Glasman, Ken and Noam; Paul Anderson on libertarian socialism in a cold climate; Nick Cohen on MF Husain and censorship; Rebecca on the beauty of Jerusalem; Richard S with some Paul Mattick Jr on socialism or barbarism; the AWL for a union campaign against antisemitism and on Libya, anti-imperialism and the Socialist Party; Hikmet Karcic on the Visegrad massacre; Neil on Nazi iconography in football; Marko from the archive on the left revisionists on the Balkans; Carl on Chavez, anti-Zionism and antisemitism; Michael Walzer from the Golan Heights; James Bloodworth on George Orwell the socialist; Richard on the Heygate, Broadgate and green capitalism; Transpontine on Brixton's anti-poll tax movement; Adam Barnett on Pamela Geller the genocide denier; linkage on Ratko Mladic from Kellie and mainly but not just on Iz/Pal from Matt.
Also Darren's long series on Class War: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6. I've printed it out to read properly.
And from a totally different place, I only just noticed that Ben Cohen has his own website, with media punditry here, and a blog here. I saw this, on Brixtonian Mike Jones formerly of the The Clash on Jewishness and the Libyan uprising. (Is "brogue" the right word for a South London accent?) And on Mladic's appeasers and Yale's downgrading of antisemitism scholarship.
