Man in the middle

Shock! Horror! Probe! The Guardian prints a sympathetic article about Israel an Israeli. Can you believe it? This person must be something special, surely? He is.

If you have the slightest interest in football, or, if you are simply interested in reading the fascinating true story of an unsung Israeli hero, do not hesitate and just click on this link. You will not be disappointed.

Unbelievably – for, remember, this is the Guardian – not only do the words “Palestinian terrorists” appear, but there is not a single dig or criticism of Israel in the entire (long) piece. Is this a first in the modern era?
