silly Israelis

Israelis are silly. They love American politicians who say a few words in Hebrew.
Bush just said Yom Haatzmaut Sameach" and the whole Knesset gave him a standing ovation.

And look - it even made the Breaking News on Haaretz.

But I must say, Bush is giving a great speech so far.

Olmert is having a hard time keeping his eyes open while Bush is speaking. Peres was already shown dozing off.

Now that Bush concluded his speech, I must say that he gave a more right wing speech than I have heard from even the most right wingers in Knesset. It is hard to believe, after all he said, that he really wants us to divide Jerusalem.


  1. Well put. I have rouble figuring out just where bush stands on Israel.

  2. I think that's a lot harder for a non-Hebrew speaker than "Shalom, chaver". There's also the upside of carrying almost no risk of appearing on a bumper sticker (a la "Yom Ha'atzma'ut, atah chaser").

  3. had you heard him say it, you would have all the proof in the world how hard it is for a non-Jew to say. he stumbled over the words, and of course could not get the "ches".
    you'd think if he was planning on saying something in Hebrew, especially something so dramatic, as he clearly intended it to be, he would have practiced it in advance so he would get it right.

  4. "ich bin ein Israeli".

    you all couldn't tell?
