It’s Purim! Tel Aviv is all costumes and feathers and streets parties.  It’s a 4 day celebration of something that happened thousands of years ago in Persia.  Meantime, exactly on Purim, Netanyahu is talking Iran in the U.S. Congress again.  The Occupy Wall Street-style tent city of the 2011 Israeli social protests has sprung up again on Rothschild Ave in the city center.
