I just love this short but exquisite disarticulation of the ‘intellectual’ boycott against Israel and all things BDS.
It’s funny, it’s devastatingly brilliant and it’s true. And it was recorded in July 2007. It appears that the inspiration of one of the core themes of Jacobson’s Booker Prize winning ‘The Finkler Question’, the BDS movement and Jewish self-hate, was a long time in gestation.
The book’s self-haters form a group of ‘Ashamed Jews’ which is a poke at many leading ‘as-a-Jews’ in British society today who use their self-proclaimed but usually disaffiliated Jewishness to attack Israel and, by extension, themselves.
