The Russian (or, the ignoble)

How gracious be he, the Russian.

The vision of altruism and honor.

Nary a one of them would eat his own children.

No, the Russian is a noble creature. No white Arab is he.

So many are the lofty moral and progressive teachings that have emerged from that warmhearted place that one can not easily number them.

Ah, those men and women of that greatest of cultures!

Let us celebrate their character!

Those great men of justice!

Harrasing stinking Hilonim

A new Frank pastime is to stereotype Hilonim and act prejudicialy to their faces.

When I find a likely hiloni either randomly or in formal circumstances eating I'll ask them "what is that, pork?", and then move right into "are you one of those people that hates Zionism and wants to give our country to the Arabs?". I try and throw in "you think what's happening to the the Arabs here is worse than the holocaust, right?". A good old "you would marry a non Jew right? A German goy?".

These comments get alot o them really going. I usually just try to do this to people who i know have some anti-religious bias.

When they ask why I am insulting them with these questions I simply say: "oh, but I don't see you wearing a kippa, you must be a Hiloni, and don't all Hilonim believe...".

You see everyday in israel religious people have to deal with the same nonsense from the non religious. Questions like "are you one of those religious people who believe..." fill in the blank. Or any number of endless cavalier references to a kippa or kosher dietary prefernces.

I think the religious should start fighting back with the same stupid bullshit.

Short sleeves in the winter

I really hate it when someone feels the need to comment on my wearing short sleeves on the israeli winter. It's so stupid.

"what do you think, that it's summer"?

As if 5-7 inches of more sleeve will make the difference between life and death in this "arctic tundra".

I was at Shul once and this guy says to me:

"Ah, your wearing short sleeves are you? Do you wear long sleeves in the summer?"

I said:

"I didn't realize you found my clothing preferences so compelling as to comment on them. I didn't realize you were gay."

I would never take the time to make such a comment. Never. I could care less.
