"To hell we are going. Zionists in the millions"

It is summer. It is hot. I don't feel like tackling any complicated subjects. So I am reaching for the low hanging fruit that Prof. AbuKhalil's news service blog always yields, in abundance, just the thing for a lazy blogger on a hot and slow summer day.

Angry Arab has another question for us:

"Protests in London and Israel

I want to do what the New York Times did with the Arab protests: how it strove to attribute them to a retired American professor and his writings. So here we go: it can be argued that Israelis and British people in London read the writings of, say, Naguib Mahfouz, and decided to protest. Oh, yeah. How do you like it when we do it to you? Do you know how silly you sound?"

"How do you like it when we do it to you?"

We don't. Please stop. It's too painful.

" Do you know how silly you sound?"

We might if we had the flimsiest inkling of what this rant is about.

Just a reminder that Prof. AbuKhalil is now professor of political science at California State University, Stanislaus and visiting professor at UC, Berkeley. He teaches young American students about disciplined thinking, objective knowledge and critical observation. He also likes fried eggplants and gets tickled all-pink by such knee-slapping humorous jokes that refer to Israeli Jews as "sons of dogs" and suggest that Israelis should adopt the slogan: "To hell we are going. Zionists in the millions". The same source of hilarity seems to have a lot of jokes about Israeli Jews and gas, too.
And speaking of dogs and such, as they say, kul kalb biji yomo; every dog - his day comes. Please notice how "AbuKhalil" contains "kul kalb", an additionally- poetic brushstroke on an already splendid academician.

Now, on top of exacerbating my jealousy, you have insulted the whole tribe of canines...

Not that I am a dog lover, just remarking on it.

I have long believed that armageddon will come to the dog-lovers versus the dog-haters. The French, being obsessive dog-lovers, will finally end their romance with muslims.

Thought you would like to read this - a fresh breeze amidst the stormy rants:
"Democracy in Tel Aviv’s Streets
The Israeli protests, whatever their merits, are a model for political dissent."
