Not Anti-Semitism,....


A small item from today's Ha'aretz:

Einstein exhibit in China foiled by his Judaism

BEIJING - Israel has canceled a planned exhibit in China on Albert Einstein after Chinese officials demanded the removal of references to his being Jewish and a supporter of creating a Jewish state, an Israeli spokesman said yesterday. The incident adds to diplomatic strains that date back to Israel's decision two years ago to call off a deal to sell Beijing a sophisticated airborne radar system. China has also openly criticized recent Israeli attacks in Palestinian territories. (AP)

P.S. Combustible Boy has more on this and other recent non-anti-Semitic incidents.
