I’m too tired to really comment, but here’s the update on the egg roll strike story from two weeks ago:
Yesterday’s The World reported that Israeli sushi restaurants planned to go on a “sushi strike” today in phase two of their protest against Israel’s plan to eliminate work permits for foreign chefs. (Okay, really their plan is to challenge the new Israeli policy in court, but this is more fun, if totally counterproductive.)
Best line in the story comes from the Israeli owner of Sakura, a Japanese restaurant in Jerusalem: [Israelis just want to be normal.] “Being normal means you can eat sushi whenever you want…kosher or not kosher…”
