Caption "Last week's nomination of sculptor Yigal Tumarkin to receive an Israel Prize seems sure to trigger yet another round of bitter recriminations. Tumarkin is an enfant terrible in the Aloni mold, with an equally long track record of gratuitously offensive behavior." From the 2004 London Jewish Tribune article by Jonathan Rosenblum, "An Israel Prize for Wagner?"
