Offbeat Israel: Iran Makeovers, Cable Price Wars

Here’s an interesting take on the unrest in Iran. Chic clothing firm Daphna Levinson has placed an advertisement in several newspapers. It reads: “Iranians, good luck with your revolution to freedom.” The picture shows “before” and “after” pictures supposedly on this theme. The “before” picture features a woman covered up in a black burka-like robe; the “after” picture comes from the latest Daphna Levinson catalog.


Israel’s main cable TV companies, Hot and Yes, are engaged in a price war. This has seemingly caused the companies to give the third degree to any customer who dares to call up to cancel.
