Of course, it's just a typo, but, you know, come to think of it, wouldn't many of us have preferred it if Shimon were to do what he does on the other side of the pond?
"Sarah Silverman and religion have proven a potent cocktail in recent history."
It's the lawlessness, stupid.
“The government finances are in paralysis state at the present moment. We are failing to meet our targets.”
A case file on Tsarnaev was sent over to the FBI, and the Russians pleaded with the agency to check the guy out.
Samuel Wurzelbacher aka “Joe the Plumber” is in hot water (which, professionally speaking, he should be able to repair) over his comments blaming the Holocaust on gun control.
Bill Pascrell, the "Arab" candidate, won the Democratic primary for NJ's 9th district. In the other corner, meet "America's Rabbi," Shmuely Boteach, the Republican candidate.
Once the lone star tic bites you, you could die, God forbid, from eating meat.
Let's face it, if we wanted to be on Temple Mount, we'd have been there.
What's wrong with this picture? Why didn't anybody tell me Sen. John McCain has joined the left wing of the Democratic party?
Jackson milked the faux pas to the last drop.
What's most striking to me is how similar things in Turkey are to things in Israel.
You'll notice that I added North Carolina to the list of swing states. This is because the Romeny camp has declared it as such, probably not a minute too soon. With its 15 delegates, North Carolina broke McCain's heart in 2008 and went for the Democrats. It's good to know someone in the Romney camp is doing some thinking.
They wrote flippantly: "Securing Israel’s future as a Jewish and democratic state requires diplomatic and political leadership, not legal maneuverings." Legal rights be damned, then?
Between conversations and nibbling, one of my neighbors bent over and whispered, smiling, “At least in this shul we know no one is going to recited Tehillim for his speedy recovery.” My immediate, totally uncalculated reaction was to open a siddur (prayer book) and begin to recite Tehillim. I couldn’t behave otherwise. That‘s my nature – if someone will tell me NOT to jump off a bridge, I’m already up on the railing, hat in hand.
Drawing red lines is never a politically wise move.
He should register his chutzpa as a lethal weapon.
"I write this article in fear," starts Omar Sharif Jr.'s revelatory article in the Advocate, which dishes out coming out stories to fit every pallet. This one involves an Egyptian TV and screen actor, grandson of a Hollywood legend, who fled his homeland for the safety of America. And he's probably Jewish, too.
Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk demanded a more "explicit reaction" to Obama's "Polish death camp" comment. Poland fears being sued for billions of dollars worth of property appropriated from Jews.
In Israel they have a cute commercial where a cop revokes your whining license for 4 years if you fail to vote.
Here's the text that accompanies this image on the Pentagon-run website DefenseImagery.mil: "During the Holocaust Days of Remembrance U.S. Air Force Capt. Jennifer McGee, with the 12th Contracting Squadron, helps Madison Angelito and Alex Barner make coconut pyramids, a traditional Jewish dessert, at Randolph Air Force Base, Texas." There are Days of Remembrance? More than one? Needs checking. Also: traditional Jewish coconut pyramids? Whose tradition? Help...
"Most people have probably never heard of Y-Love," writes Jerry Portwood in Out Magazine this week, explaining that "for a dedicated fan base, however, Y-Love, aka Yitz Jordan, is a popular Hassidic hip-hop artist who raps in a mix of English, Arabic, Hebrew, Aramaic and Latin. That’s right: Jordan is an African-American rapping Jew. And now he wants the world to know he’s gay."
"Ashkenazi Jews, who constituted 8 per cent of Egyptian Jewry, did not speak Arabic and despised Egyptian society."
Very clever clip, an 8-minute list of endless Jewish contributions to the civilized world.
I went on a random search for similar "balabusta" solutions for the miraculous by really lengthy festival of lights.
On Saturday, at noon, local Jews out on a walk at the Aner springs west of the village of Neria in Samaria were attacked by dozens of Arabs throwing rocks, Tazpit reported. The official reason for the Arabs to be in the area was the olive harvest. What can be more peaceful than the olive harvest? And yet, despite the peaceful properties assigned to the olive, despite all those olive branches everywhere – those Arab olive pickers put down the olives and picked up the rocks.
I just received their SOS email: the roof is leaking and time is running out, is, basically, what they wrote.
We long for the days that we will see the reestablishment of Solomon's Temple and hopefully we will pray there together in the near future. This will definitely happen as the days of Messiah—Yamot HaMashiach—are imminent.
I've no idea whether to feel offended by the fact that Beck saw fit to spend money on a sample of Hitler's blood.
