About me


My name is Yossi Gurvitz, an Israeli blogger, freelancer, translator, amateur historian and photographer. At the moment I am writing a book, for the American market, about the history of Israel and why it is likely to end soon. The “George” is George Orwell, whom I try to follow a a guiding light.

This blog is a translation of my Hebrew blog (and several of my articles which appeared in the Israeli press), with the kind assistance of Dena Bugel-Shunra and Yair Mehalael. The picture was taken by Daniel Shunra, and edited by me.

  2. Yossi’s Hebrew writing has some of the most important and insightful material about Israel that I have ever read.

    As an American concerned about the way Israel is idolized in the U.S., I am delighted to help make his writing more accessible to readers of English, worldwide.

    Israel’s policies and attitudes, along with its political and military strength, put the entire world in danger. Exposing these attitudes and policies may serve to promote sharing of political and natural resources inside the territory of Palestine – which is another, older name for Israel and the territory occupied by it from 1948 and thereafter.

    It is my pleasure and honor to translate his insights into English.

  3. I declare myself a new reader and am adding this to my own blogroll.

    Thank you for this blog.

  4. Hello, Fran.

    I aim to please. However, bear in mind that despite a quick launch, this blog is liable to be a bit slower than the original – and this week was particularly slow, writing-wise.
