Diary May 14

The Dervish controversy rumbles on.  FullSet, the support band for Dervish's planned tour in Israel, has issued a statement regretting the cancellation. The Irish Times has run several articles on the debate, which reveal as much about that paper's elite orientation and about the slanted 'objectivity' characteristic of power, as anything else of substance.  Kevin Myers, always acutely attuned to the agonies of the potentates, has published an article on Ynet, the internet arm of Yedioth Ahronoth, portraying the episode as 'the war on Israel, Irish-style'Such is the general level of Irish discussion.
