The Tao of Petitions

How little is too little?

Five Minutes for Israel was created on the principle that Israel advocacy need not take much of a supporter’s time. Commenting on social media; voting in an online poll; signing a petition all let Israel’s voice be heard are all valuable.

Save the Children from the Independent

Count the Children

As a general rule Five Minutes for Israel ignores the Independent. Criticising any newspaper featuring both Robert Fisk and Ben White would be like criticising al Jazeera or Soviet-era Pravda. But the graphics in  Israel reduces Palestinians’ permitted fishing zone by a third post (Saturday 6 October), especially as linked on their Facebook page drew my attention by their hypocrisy.
