    I can't tell the difference between most Sabras and Palestinians. They walk, talk and act the same. But when I take one look at these misplaced, dangerous, lazy mamzerim who stone you on a Shabas for walking without covering your arms, I can't help understanding why we Jews are so loathed and vilified throughout the World. Who are they? Where are they from? Could space travel possibly accommodate and possibly return them to their rightful Planet, preferably in another Solar System. Don't get me wrong, the extremists in the Arab World are even worse but as a Jew I want more from my own people, and meanwhile they just keep digging that bottomless pit we will sooner or later all will find ourselves in. In short, they are killing our way of life, our spirit and our ability to survive. This is tantamount to Eastern Europe and America's version of the , "X Factor" for interpretation of "Jewishness" with it's compulsory outfits, Tzitzis, Sedar and ability to bang on about how many shekels to compensate your neighbor for the damage your sheep did to his disabled chickens while running from foxes. Totally insane, and DANGEROUS. UP side: Ahmadinejad loves them.
