Well, come on. It's Israel for crying out loud, not Los Angeles. It was bad research to assume they would find that sort of marketing acceptable in the first place.
Er....you might want to reconsider some of your assumptions about Israel, seriously, tel aviv is as modern and open (socially) as any other big western city and most of the country is the same.

Cool

Those are the two most terrible pictures of Sally Jessica Parker, I have ever seen. They should have covered her face as well...

Everything has a reason. That doesn't mean that it is a good reason.

As did I, I've done enough travelling to realize that stupid knows know bounds.

That just shows that they can't be wrong all of the time.

1) Definitely not kneejerk;
2) thoroughly thought out, plenty of practice cuts down on the cycle time;
3) not xenophobic, see my travel note above;
4) don't berate the understanding of someone you lack knowldge of.

Sorry gregle but you're not making too much sense, if you found the superbowl incident hilarious why do you think we should view this in solemn silence and slowly try and comprehend which ever bunch of fundies are behind this one? They're both silly incidents that are not good reflections on their respective societies nor are they that representative of the population in general and certainly doesn't fit my experiences with Israelis. In short, what is is you find has 'wiffs of xenophobia' about my comment.

I think Isreal has more nude or at least topless beaches than the US does. Either that or the people sending pics to Project Voyeur & VoyeurWeb are lying.

Folks, it's the Mid-East. By Middle Eastern standards they are NOT tight assed bastards - they aren't making the women wear burkas, right?

Hate to be Non PC - but lets thing of this - we have 2 major religions still based in the Middle East (Catholicism has been based in Rome _OR_ congregationalist for a LONG time) - both have a LOT in common - in fact, if you remove religion, it would be hard to tell an Arab from an Israeli

Naw, the Israelis carry Galilis and Uzis whereas the Arabs favor AKs.
