Barenboim Attacked Yesterday, in a restaurant at Mishkenot Sha'ananim in Jerusalem's Yemin Moshe quarter, a group of Kach activists attacked world renowned musician Daniel Barenboim, calling him a "traitor" for giving a performance in Ramallah on Tuesday. (His wife responded by throwing vegetables at the activists). . . . Barenboim responded: "For me, it is important to stress that everyone has an obligation to work toward peace, in his field and with his own means."
