PuRim SaMeAcH

star-purim_2014Happy Purim

The cynics say that seizing the Klos-C was timed to coincide with the AIPAC conference but those really in-the-know see it was timed for Purim! The festival  celebrates the defeat of an ancient enemy in Persia, known today as the Islamic Republic of Iran. If there’s one thing the Jews know how do, it’s read a calendar.

Purim involves heavy drinking, barracking for the good guys, booing the bad and pretending to be someone you are not. Something like Carnival or Mardi Gras or Premier League football or every other day.
