Welcome, ladies and gentlemen, to United Israel Tours. Have a seat, but be sure not to sit next to Someone Who is Different from You. All children will be segregated. If you look out the window to your left, you may glimpse beautiful red tiled roofs with swimming pools, which just hide the view of squalor a few meters beyond. Now, while mad drivers are grabbing for the wheel, do not let on that we are headed towards uncertainty, but ride along like "happy passengers", for indeed you are ignorant of the vehicle's faulty brakes or what the wheels are trampling on. Please notice the lovely scenery (but don't pay attention to that ugly grey wall.) Ahem. The social engine of this bus has been designed well to suit your needs, it's meant to endure long mileage over rocky terrain. If you plan a long smooth ride, please encourage the driver to stop at a garage and separate the powers (of religion and state), and throw in a good bill of rights as a warrantee for your safety. Now relax, and enjoy your trip at United Israel.
