Force of habit.”

Mr Ne­tanyahu re­torted in re­sponse via Twit­ter that “the Ira­nian for­eign min­is­ter talks about tol­er­ance when his regime hangs ho­mo­sex­u­als, im­pris­ons jour­nal­ists and calls for the de­struc­tion of Is­rael. Who are they kid­ding?”

AN AC­TIVIST pro­mot­ing a boy­cott of Is­rael was spot­ted buy­ing his falafel lunch at the Is­raeli chain Maoz in Am­s­ter­dam.

The man, dressed in a high vis­i­bil­ity vest em­bla­zoned with the Pales­tinian flag and the words “Boy­cott Is­rael”, was pic­tured put­ting salad in his falafel at the take­away.

The pic­ture caused amuse­ment on a Dutch Jewish news Face­book page, where peo­ple were quick to point out the irony.
