If Jewish weekly editors had late night talk shows:
Crazy stuff in the Middle East this week. Al-Jazeera leaked memos showing the Palestinians were willing to give up parts of Jerusalem. But Israelis found out that the offer included ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods and turned it down.
Congressman Steve Cohen apologized for comparing the Republicans to Joseph Goebbels. That’s right. He even upset Sarah Palin, who said he should go even farther and “apologize to the entire cast of Hollywood Squares. “
Do you know that Israeli commission investigating last year’s shooting aboard a Turkish ship? It tuns out the average age of the commission members was 85. That’s right — 85. A bunch of old men sitting around talking about Turkey — it was like Thanksgiving at John McCain’s house.
Israel’s Holocaust museum has started a new YouTube channel in Farsi, so Iranians can learn about the evils of fascism. Or as it’s called in Iran: State-run television.
Singer Macy Gray asked her Facebook fans to vote on whether she should go to Israel. So far 300 people said yes, 275 people said no, and 15 asked that if she does go, can she drop off a package for their cousins in Ashkelon.
Boy, it’s cold in New York this week. How cold? Iranian bankers were at the U.N., complaining about their frozen assets.
We have a great show! Our guests tonight include Alan Dershowitz, comedian Jackie Mason and musical guests the Klezmatics! We’ll be back, right after this!
