JOSHUA PUNDIT by Rob
You may recall the story of Shachar Rabinovitch, a 13-year-old girl living in Israel. She recently wrote to British academic Marsha Levine, who is reportedly an expert on horses that she was doing a school project and sent her a polite letter asking her for some information about the domestication and breeding of early horse species:
My name is Shachar Rabinovitch and I’m from Israel.
I’m doing an assessment for school about horses, and it will be great if you can answer a few questions that I will ask.
1. What ancient horses breeds preserved and were a base to the breeds we know today?
2. How did the ancient humans created new breeds or kept the ones who already were existent?
3. What ancient horse breed the ancient humans used the most and what were those uses?
4. Where did the ancient horses breeds lived?
Thank you for reading my questions,
Levine, who is Jewish (at least genetically) and who still claims to be a researcher at Cambridge University although apparently she no longer is, replied :
Dear Shachar Rabinovich:
I’ll answer your questions when there is peace and justice for Palestinians in Palestine.
I am a member of Jews for Justice for Palestinians. I support Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions. You might be a child, but if you are old enough to write to me, you are old enough to learn about Israeli history and how it has impacted on the lives of Palestinian people. Maybe your family has the same views as I do, but I doubt it. […]
