There is an old joke about two Russian Jews riding on a train. Shiomon is reading a Jewish newspaper, while Levi is reading Pravda.

Shimon asks Levi, “Why are you reading Pravda?”


Levi, of course, answers with a question, “Well, what’s your newspaper talking about?”

Shimon tells him the headlines… how poor the Jews are, the latest anti-Semitic attacks, and so on.

Levi says that in the issue of Pravda he is reading, they are talking about how the Jews rule the world and how the Jews have all the money… so he prefers to read Pravda.

In that vein, here is a wonderful video about Settlement growth put together by some people who don’t really like Israel all that much – ominous music and all.
