RI­HANNA BEATS TWEET RE­TREAT DRINK­ING CURE FOR IS­RAELIS

The Jewish Chronicle - - COMMENT -

POP star Ri­hanna is more known for provoca­tive at­tire than pol­i­tics. But she stum­bled into hot wa­ter this week af­ter a tweet went out from her of­fi­cial site which read #freepales­tine.

A source de­nied this re­vealed the singer’s Mid-East sym­pa­thies and said she had ac­ci­den­tally sent out the hash­tag af­ter read­ing about the lat­est con­flict. The tweet was re­moved shortly af­ter its ap­pear­ance.

IF you want to give more than moral sup­port to Is­raeli friends and rel­a­tives shel­ter­ing from Ha­mas rock­ets, then a flask of scotch might be just the thing.

Ap­par­ently, a study into the state of mind of Is­raelis dur­ing a pre­vi­ous round of hos­til­i­ties with Gaza showed that those who en­joyed a drink or two were more likely to re­sist de­pres­sion than those who were tee­to­tal.
