  1. Has anyone here ever walked through Borough Park Brooklyn on Purim?
    Would it be interesing?
    Would I be made to feel uncomfortable? Be ignored? Or just bored?
    Is Purim just for kids in orthodox neighborhoods or can I expect lots of public, righteous drunkedness?

  3. “you’re invited to join Jews Against the Occupation – NYC

    Is dressing up in faux suicide bomb vests and black Hamas palamilitary threads in good or bad taste at such a function?

  4. No, man, dig: The event is where people with no better conception of their Judaism than liberalism get so confused, that they can’t tell the difference between the enemy and their own people- Adloyada! Whereas during the rest of the year, these fools pretend to be jews…

  5. Ageeoo:
    I Just checked out JATO’s mission statement. There is nothing there stating a position against suicide bombing, so I’m just going to assume that the Hamas headband and cardboard suicide belt are OK. I’ll see you there, I’ll be the one pimpin’ with my virgins.
