Everybody Loves The French!

Last summer, Israel was inundated with French people. Whether they were escaping anti-Semitism back home, visiting family or just enjoying the beaches and the bargains afforded by the strong Euro, one thing was clear: the French? They’re not like you and me. This clip is in Hebrew and French and if you speak neither language you’ll just have to rely on the visuals for a laugh. Here’s a helpful hint… the guy in the Speedo? He’s a French Jew from Marseilles.

Thanks to Ahuvah for directing me to this Eretz Nehederet (It’s a Wonderful Country – an Israeli comedy show) clip.

    The bit at the end with the IDF soldier is priceless!

    We were in Eilat for the weekend in August, and I think 80% of the people on the tayelet and at the King Solomon were French. And it seemed that a large % off them spoke some Hebrew beyond the “shalom lach” level. Maybe the “ugly Tsarfatim” were up in Netanya:-).
