Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Alice Walker is seeking to stop the
translation of her novel “The Color Purple” into Hebrew for sale in
Israel. She pronounces herself an agent of all that is good and moral.
Actually, Walker is a fellow traveler of Hamas, which is once again
firing rockets into Israel, and she is so deranged by anti-Israel
fever as to verge on anti-Semitism.
Walker is an adherent of the odious BDS movement — boycott,
disinvestment and sanctions — which finds the Jewish state guilty of,
essentially, the sins of existence and self-defense. She sees her
part as barring distribution of her book in Hebrew, the national
language of Israel.
