The prime ministers of both India and Israel referred, in their effusive remarks to the press on Monday, to the decisive role that Indian soldiers played in the Battle of Haifa in 1918. Although you could be excused if you’ve never heard of such a battle, it was in fact a critical turning point in the Allied campaign to conquer Palestine in World War I, and members of the Indian Army played a critical role in the fighting.
When Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon addressed the General Assembly on Thursday, making the case for members voting against the resolution on Jerusalem, he must have known that a few minutes later, when the vote was taken, a majority of member states would disregard his advice. Perhaps that's why he allowed himself to refer to the UN as a collection of hypocrites and "puppets," who, he said, are "forced to dance while the Palestinian leadership looks on with glee."
Inspired by my story in @haaretzcom last spring about King Hussein's unfinished palace in north Jerusalem, Mishy Harman decided to devote an episode of his Israel Story podcast to the tale of the fateful hill where the unfinished frame still stands, https://t.co/Tl1RkNgHmv
“ There is a myth of exceptionalism in America that prevents it from looking outward, and learning from the world. It is made up of littler myths about greed being good, the weak deserving nothing, society being an arena, not a lever, for the…” — @umairhhttps://t.co/mZ4sOMFuTG
@PaddyConsidine@KermodeMovie Recently saw a 1981 BBC doc about P&P, "A Very British Affair," a wonderful summary of their work together, with touching interviews with the two near the ends of their lives
This is why it's disingenuous at best for the U.S. administration to act as if it's reasonable and natural for it to give official recognition to #Jerusalem as Israel's couple. For one thing, which Jerusalem are they thinking about
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
