Settle Loons, this is a feel good story. The Coney Island Bialys and Bagels store , the oldest bialy bakery in New York City, was facing closure due to hard eonomic times. Enter Zafaryab Ali and Peerzada Shah, two Pakistani Muslims. Ali, who had previously worked there for 11 years and his friend Shah bought the place and have been continuing the old fashion Jewish tradition ever since. Steve Ross, the grandson of the original owner, who sold the bakery to the men, is constantly on hand to help out. Ali and Shah use the same ingredients and traditional baking methods as the previous owners to keep everything kosher. Ali says, “Kosher and halal is very, very close, like brother and sister, maybe twins.” See Loons, a feel good story.

Oi, oi, oi, if you want to make it in the cut throat world of fashion its best you don’t be sprouting anti-Semitic tirades and declaring your love of “Hitler”, it’s career suicide John Galliano I say, career suicide. The British fashion designer has found himself landing on his petite little ass after a video surfaced of him insulting French cafe patrons and declaring “I love Hitler”. Christian Dior have announced they are sacking the 50 year old. Oh boy. It doesn’t help that the face of Dior perfume is Oscar winning actress Natalie Portman, who is Jewish and now “deeply shocked and disgusted” by Galliano’s behavior. Hmm, hey Galliano, there is a spare seat over there, near Mel.
OK, here’s the thing you Nazi, if you have a tattoo of a Reichsadler (Imperial eagle) perched on a swastika on your arm, just hope your surgeon isn’t Jewish! A Jewish doctor in Germany walked out of a surgery and refused to operate on his patient after he noticed the Nazi tatt on his arm. So much for the Hippocratic Oath.
OMG, unfrigginbelieveable. Seems the Daily Telegraph have unearthed a bizarre secret, the Iranian president has Jewish roots. Who friggin knew. Yep, when they zoomed in on his identity card it revealed his “original” family name was Sabourjian, which is Jewish for cloth weaver. Oh I get it, that’s why he changed it to a more sophisticated name Imadinnerjacket, doh! It is believed his family changed their name after converting to Islam after Imadinnerjacket was born.Hmm, it might explain why he has a few issues with Jews. Ali Nourizadeh (Centre for Arab and Iranian Studies) says “By making anti-Israeli statements he is trying to shed any suspicions about his Jewish connections. He feels vulnerable in a radical Shia society.” No probs, just chuck the whingers in jail, like you do the protesters! Happy Hanukkah!
Psst Hmm, what next, Kim Jong Il is a protestant?
