Those who know me well know that I have a pretty good sense of humour (or for those in the USA: "humor"!), but.... & it's a big BUT... this to me is not good humour whatsoever... in fact, to me, it borders on being insulting, not only to Jews, but to HaShem Himself, just to get what I would call a "cheap laugh" & that, to me, is dangerous ground to be treading... I pray for his own sake that this guy comes to the realisation of what he is doing... & stops.

I think it is appropriate. It is comedy which is used to break down stereotypes by addressing them head on.

This is very appropriate. It pokes fun at some very serious concepts in Judaism. Get a name and a life, anonymous.

Its true that is why it is funny
It is true that Jews are a higher, loftier nation, and many Jews do not think so, but Hashem sure does

But that was FUNNY!

I agree with the comment of Anonymous June 21-2010, "It is inappropriate".
The majority of Jewish people I have come into contact with seem to have forgotten, that they "are" a chosen nation, they have forgotten the the meaning of " Hear O' Israel, The Lord your God is one Lord the commandment to love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. We must learn to listen and hear with our spiritual ears and hear what God has to say to us, we are to teach His Word and his commandments diligently to our children, and shall talk of them when we sit in our house, and when we walk by the way, and when we lie down and when we rise up, we must bind them for a sign unto our hands, His word is to be a front let between our eyes, This is a metaphor, acknowledging and remembering God in every thing we do, wherever we go, we are to think and meditate on his word and his commandments,from when we go to sleep and when we wake up, always keeping in mind to listen and hear, His still small voice, Deuteronomy 6 This man in the video claims to be Jewish , the Jewish people especially should know better then to make foolish jokes, no wonder they hate them, they (The Jewish people) should be feared for their righteousness and their believe, their trust and faith in God. Not just any god, image or idol, but the God in who's image they are created.
I believe now more then ever we live in a time to become serious, and stop fooling around.
