International relations are rarely good for a laugh, but one Israeli blogger is having some fun.
Pinchas Orbach of Kumah reports:
“So… Fateh, of Yasser Arafat fame, set up a website called Fateh.net and they opened it up to anybody that wants to post a blog. Hmm… well someone posted this blog there called “Am Yisrael Chai” (The Nation of Israel Lives!)”
(Screenshot sourced from Kumah.org, with thanks)
Subtitled “Israel rocks Fateh.net,” the Am Yisrael Chai! blogger's recent entries include “Jew-cooties” and “Nah! They're not Anti-Semitic,” as well as a calendar that counts kassam rockets landing in Israel from Gaza, similar to the one found here.
The blogger's “About” page reads:
“This is mostly a joke page just because I saw that anyone could create a blog on Fateh.net. The posts here are a very small selection of posts from the Elder of Ziyon blog.”
