Climbing the mountain of the glassed ceiling career...
When you finally punch through, you're in like flint, temporary, but there nevertheless!!! Learn to thrive on hate, not unlike a comedian, but, BE totally , seriously, you. If you can't abide being you, who's going to be you? For you...

You may not like it or think it is stupid, but it is not anti-Semitic. Yes, it is exploiting a stereotype, but in no way is it anti-Jewish just because it makes fun of Jews. Silly people. Anyway, this if funny and I suppose none of you are Israeli because they would be laughing. That is what makes them unique. They can laugh at stupidity.

Come on! Lighten up a little!
Some folks see real humor in this, some don´t. I think such a skit written and performed by Jews is very funny. They spoof some of the Goyish stereotypes, and with a winking eye, see a little humorous truth. Even black comedians do skits that make fun of eccentric things some of their own people say and do. As long as this wasn´t put out by anti-semites, just enjoy it. No offense is intended, and none should be taken! You ought to see some of the skits that German/Turkish comedians do, poking fun at themselves.

If only it ere not TRUE!!
I live in Israel and this is a very funny skit. If some one is too sensitive to watch this skit they wouldn't last a day in Israel Most Israeli's agree they are generally rude and pushy. If nothing else let the people who have to live with their behaviour lagh a little!

WHAT WERE YOU THINKING?
Agreed, NOT funny, doesn't even make sense
February 22, 2010 9:00 PM
well, i live here in Israel with sabras
And I don't dig this. It's pretty stupid, and not worthy of presentation. It is not funny.
Anyway, happy Purim.

Verrrrry Not Funny, Antisemitic, Disgusting
As a Holocaust survivor, I am deeply hurt and shocked that a Jewish site would show Antisemitic material perpetuating negative stereotypes. Why not just post a link to one of the many anti Jewish hate sites while you're at it?

pRICE IS RIGHT
STUPID AND INSULTING AND DISGUSTING.

Hostile External Pressures
Although Israeli Sabras naturally have a sweet, mushy inside, years of external pressures, and being forced to survive on their guts and instincts, make their exterior prickly and aggressive. They are a product of their experiences and environment
