Prohibitively High Rocket-Fuel Prices Bring Mideast Crisis To Standstill

"Do you know how fast a Qassam-2 burns through half a tank of rocket fuel? Even if I launched it from An Naqurah, it still wouldn’t make the trip to Nahariyya...."
That site is hysterical lol. I hadnt seen this, but am glad I did :D

I used to read it religiously 5 years ago. Now I just occasionally pick it up when I find it in print.
This article damn near made me spit my hot chocolate out a couple weekends ago.
Edit: Also let us not forget about Herbert Kornfeld. The badest "Accountz Reeceevable" mofo you will ever read about.

Among the highlights of Holocaust Hoedown '97: a Main Street parade featuring red, white and blue Texas blossoms spelling out "Don't Mess With The Jews"; a special appearance by six-time Zionist calf-roping champion Barry Lowenstein; and daily double-bill showings of Schindler's List and John Wayne's True Grit.
