  1. How reliable is the Syrian News Agency these days? Has the authenticity of their reporting not come into question of late?

    Also, just FYI, there seem to be some typos in this story – a word missing in the second to last sentence of the first paragraph, and the one sentence that makes up the third paragraph seems oddly constructed.

    1. Of course it’s a state supported news agency & therefore suspect in certain matters. But in this case, what it reported was accurate. If you want to correct typos (which I appreciate) let me know where the specific mistakes are so I don’t have to hunt through the entire post to find them.

  2. RE: “For many Israeli Jews anyone in Israel who isn’t Jewish is an ‘infiltrator’.” ~ R.S.

    MY SNARK: I have always thought the old tried and true “undesirable” had a rather nice cachet.

  3. RE: “Such charges are very serious and can land you in an Israeli jail for a very long time. Even if the charges are false, once you’re in the maw of the security apparatus it will not let you go.” ~ R.S.

    After months of trial postponement, Joseph K goes to court painter Titorelli to ask for advice. He is told to hope for little. He might get definite acquittal, ostensible acquittal, or indefinite postponement. No one is ever really acquitted, but sometimes cases can be extended indefinitely.

    Titorelli: “You see, in definite acquittal, all the documents are annulled. But with ostensible acquittal, your whole dossier continues to circulate. Up to the higher courts, down to the lower ones, up again, down. These oscillations and peregrinations, you just can’t figure ‘em.”
    Joseph K: “No use in trying either, I suppose.”
    Titorelli: “Not a hope. Why, I’ve known cases of an acquitted man coming home from the court and finding the cops waiting there to arrest him all over again. But then, of course, theoretically it’s always possible to get another ostensible acquittal.”
    Joseph K: “The second acquittal wouldn’t be final either.”
    Titorelli: “It’s automatically followed by the third arrest. The third acquittal, by the fourth arrest. The fourth…”
