    Israeli Big Brother

    http://youtu.be/lGZv4tJSzYg

    Israel's Big Brother this year achieved a surprising twist, by making a superstar out of "Palestine sympathiser" Saar Szekely. Szekely is obviously locked within a left/right banal dichotomy (occupation, pre/post 67), yet, such an open debate is taking place in Israeli TV on prime time. 

    The Guardian reports: "Szekely, 27, is the wild-card candidate whose stated objective was to voice leftwing views on prime-time television. In a house full of right wind and with a predominantly rightwing audience, Szekely's mission looked certain to be short-lived. But for all the Facebook pages clamouring for his annihilation, the Tel Aviv-based artist has made it to tomorrow night's final, and along the way become something of a heart-throb."
