I know, maybe this isn’t a good idea what with passions, ahem, enflamed, so to speak. But I was shown this video in the company of two gentlemen who shall remain otherwise nameless lest their liberal street cred suffer. Despite their incessant giggles and questionable state of sobriety, I blame them for this post.

One of Rabbi Yo’s fave sayings is a blast from the shtetl past – “Keep the Czar far, far away.” Well now we can replace Czar with Mullah. Or whatever that crazy dude is.

  • First of all, I’m not a liberal. I’ve never voted for a left wing party and never will.

    Few comments about the above video (which I just watched six times in a row). My favorite part is when he throws his hat just as the song kicks in. So awesome. Not quite as awesome however when the guy in the green scarf grabs the mic and gets the crowd moving. I also enjoyed the guy to his left hitting himself on the head. We are NEVER going to get along with these people. Oh, did I just say “these people”?

  • yeah, harry’s a betarist and puts stones on jabotinsky’s grave. where’ve you been?

  • Looks a little like the last Chicken Dance of the night at an Octoberfest keg party. I hope the poor guy gets the medical attention he needs.

  • hey ck, this is completely off topic, but you wouldn’t happen to know daniel/david herz. and would the name ‘my cousin dave’ mean anything to you?

  • why do they keep smacking their heads? kinda like the 3 stooges, only scarier.

  • eyal: Daniel and David Herz are my 1st cousins. I had shabat lunch with David this past Saturday. “My Cousin Dave” was the name of Daniel’s band until they changed it to… it pains me to recall… Fallout Theory. Yikes. I still haven’t forgiven them for that. My Cousin Dave was such an inspired name… So how did you figure out the connection eyal? And another question, who the fuck are YOU?

  • well, I too was in my cousin dave, and I subsequently became best friends with daniel. We were discussing the metzitza controversy this shabbat, and I brought up the article on your site, which prompted him to go – ” my cousin writes for that site!” and for me to go “no way!” “using my powers of deduction and the knowledge that the cousin in question must be moroccan, i deduced it had to be you. ask david about me, and tell him I say hi!

  • Thanks for the shout out Dave, but i am not sure that they even desrve the Czar’s blessing. Which is afterall, “May God bless the Czar … and keep him far far away from us.

    I cannot say the same about Hamas.

    I would propose rather a little diddy based on the Prayer for TZAHAL

    God Who blessed our Ancestors — may You bless the fighters of the Israel Defense Forces, who stand guard over our land and our cities, from the border of the Lebanon to the desert of Egypt, and from the Great Sea unto the approach of the Aravah, on the land, in the air, and on the sea.

    May the Almighty cause the enemies who rise up against us to be struck down before them. May the Holy One, Blessed is Hashem, preserve and rescue our fighters from every trouble and distress and from every plague and illness, and may Hashem send blessing and success in their every endeavor.

    May Hashem lead our enemies under our soldiers’ sway and may Hashem grant them salvation and crown them with victory. And may there be fulfilled for them the verse: For it is the Lord your God, Who goes with you to battle your enemies for you to save you.

    May Hashem empower the world to see the evil of Amalek today, and save many innocent lives from their baseless hatred and evil.

    Grant us true peace in fulfillment of the prophecy: “Nation shall not lift up sword against another nation, nor shall they learn war any more.”

    Let all the inhabitants of the world know that Dominion is Yours, and Your name inspires awe upon all that You have created. May this be Your will, and let us say, Amen.

  • This is great. I have never seen someone slap themselves with such vigour. It must be the music (or the insanity). Thanks for the laugh.

  • there is nothing funny.. this is just a tradition thing not a religion thing.. and the jews also shake their heads like a crazy infront of the holly wall!! ..
