    That's true. Intelligence is anathematic to bureaucracy.

    Sorry dude, I'm not that interested in it. As I saw it, the guy said nothing against Jewish people anywhere. Just called it how I saw it.

    Maybe they're Netanyahu supporters. He said essentially the same - see my sig.
    We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq.

    Purim, to the Jewish fanatics, celebrates the slaughter of Gentiles:

    'Like many Jews around the world, I dutifully celebrated Purim last week. In my case, it meant hearing the Book of Esther read aloud in my synagogue while drinking an occasional shot of scotch, enjoying our annual “Oy Vey Cafe,” ... I’m sure that many middle-class American Jews celebrated Purim in similar fashion. I’m also fairly sure that most middle-class American Jews are unaware that Purim has long been “celebrated” in a very different manner by ultra-nationalist Jews in Israel.

    'Last week on the day after Purim, it was reported that a Palestinian woman was attacked by ultra-orthodox women at a light rail station in Kiryat Moshe, Jerusalem. According to the Israeli newspaper Ma’ariv, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish woman walked by the Palestinian woman and began punching her. Others soon joined in the attack and eventually tore off her hijab. According to the report, the light rail security guard, as well as some 100 religious Israeli men, stood by and did nothing. Eyewitness Dorit Yarden Dotan, who was horrified by the violence and took photos of the beating with her telephone, reported that the security guard even “watched and smiled”. “It was simply terrible,” she added.



    'By the way, this was not the only act of Purim violence this year. On the same day as the Jerusalem attack, a Palestinian citizen of Israel, Hassan Usruf (right), was attacked by drunken Jewish youths whom police suspect had been participating in Purim celebrations during the evening ...

    'Those who follow the news must surely know that this kind of Jewish violence against Palestinians have become an annual inevitability in Israel. The most infamous Purim moment, of course, occurred in 1994, when Baruch Goldstein walked into the Cave of Machpelah in Hevron wearing an Israeli army uniform and opened fire on Palestinian worshipers, killing 29 and wounding more than 125. By committing this act of mass murder, Goldstein believed he was fulfilling the the Book of Esther, which describes the slaughter of seventy five thousand Persians at the hands of the Jews. Since that time, Goldstein has become venerated by ultra-orthodox, ultra-nationalist Jews and for rest of us, Purim as never been quite the same.'

    Not many here realize that's it's these fanatics who are becoming more and more accepted in Israel:

    Fundamentalism into the mainstream - Israel News | Haaretz Daily Newspaper

    Because the fanatics are in charge, as Uri Avnery describes. He discusses the controversy over recent rabbinical rulings, beginning with pointed examples showing how such things go completely against the grain of contemporary Western culture:

    Seems to me its just a reminder that no people's are immune to bad taste. And regardless the motive behind it, poor judgement, bad taste, exploitation of the children.

    For some, their is no such thing as justified criticism of an Israeli.

    What you did was simply add fuel by dredging up something similar.
    The costumes were disparaging. Funny you think that pointing to them was.
