Tonight and tomorrow are Yom Kippur, traditionally a fast day in which Jews are immersed in spiritual retrospection about the ways in which we’ve let down our fellow humanity and the ways in which we propose to do better in the coming year. In that spirit, I’m displaying one of a series of political High Holiday cartoons by the inimitable, Mysh. This one features Interior Minister Eli Yishai (with fingers crossed, natch) saying to a group of African refugees in an internment camp:
“I’ve turned racism into a supreme value of Zionism and Judaism.
Food for thought on this holy day.
