Denny Crane (William Shatner) tells it as it is about Israel

So what's your take on this folks? He looks like he manged to upset the 3 sides here, Israel, "they have a a habit of overreacting", The US who believes they, only, have a right to use disproportionate power and obviously the Palestinians when he agrees that, of course, Israel has the right to defend itself, etc.


  1. Oh, how this clip brings back memories. I guess all religions are strange, but since I had to go to bar mitzvahs and stuff like that, all the particular strangeness of synagouge is most familiar to me. First of all, you knew it was going to be different from the outside world right off because all the books were printed backwards and in Hebrew. And yarmakules are not made for people with long hair-they fit best on your head if you're bald. If you let your hair grow, it's like balancing a napkin on your head for three hours. And the service goes on and on and on, and it's all in Hebrew. But looking at the translation, you could see it really wouldn't matter if you knew Hebrew. It's the same thing over and over: Blessed be thee oh Lord, our are everything, we are nothing. Then when you think there is hope it will end soon, they pull out another scroll. When the Barmitzvah Boy stumbles through his portion, it is a sign that you're halfway through the torture. And what a drag it is if the rabbi takes his job seriously and gave a sermon, and heaven forbid, wanted to lead a discussion. In that case, there'd be no telling when you'd get out of there. And when I learned they spoke Hebrew in Israel, any chance of me going there went right out the window-it would be like being in synagouge 24 hours a day.

    Joe, I've seen  yarmulks  fitted with a clip of sorts on many heads in Paris. Is this something unusual to do?
    BTW, thanks for the reminiscence of your childhood memories. Sounds like great fun..I realise how lucky I was escaping all rituals and ceremonies..

  3. I see those clips too...About the only thing you can do to make a yarmakule more retarded is to use a hair clip to keep it on.
