Laughter is good

I spent three years sharing a flat in Breman, Germany with German, Palestinians, Saudi Arabians, Egyptians, and Sudanese college students. Laughter was what kept the peace and help us not take ourselves and each other so seriously.
Furthermore, comedians do not "weaken us"......throughout our history it was comedians that helped us survive. Laughter is a gift from Hashem, and all of us need to take ourselves a little less seriously and realize that there is not that much difference between "us and Them".

these "comedians" trivialize serious matters

These "comedians" have the effect of trivializing the very substantive and fundamental differences between us and them. This is very misleading because it suggests that both sides are just wrong-headed dogmatists without real substance to their beliefs. Torah is Emes, Eretz Yisrael is G-d's gift to the Jews as Hashem tells us in the Torah, etc. We need to educate Jews and non-Jews about the basics of Judaism and
Eretz Yisrael. There is a place for laughter but not as part of an unwitting political purpose which weakens us as this group does.

Not amusing or thirst-quenchin

Jews can laugh at their own faults and trials but this gag about the feud in the Middle East irritates me. If all it took was a beer commercial to get terrorism to stop, it would've happened over 50 years ago. BTW, didn't the US actually GIVE Arafat a Noble Prize several years ago? Look how things turned out after that!! Terrorism increased tenfold under that hypocrite's lying words to the world.

Frankly, I don't think Lebanon, Egypt, Syria, and Iraq want beer or Western endorsement. They want Israel off the map and all of the Jews annihilated.
