Some questions for Israelis:

Why do Israelis clap when the plane lands?

Why aren't there more blue/white ribbons

Why doesn't it matter to Israelis whether you say 'thank you' or 'you're welcome' first?

When there are three lanes on a backed up highway, why do Israelis drive in between the lanes
causing traffic to be even more backed up?


I know conversational Hebrew was just brought back to life in the past hundred years....but considering all the different cultures and dialects that were brought to Israel by immigration how is there already a standard Israeli accent

Some questions for the 'Pals.'

Why malls

c. they got better things to appreciate (like hummus)
d. israel is all about standing in lines, in the most obscure of fashions.
e. yeah, i dunno
f. there isn't, every ethinicity points at another one and says, damn "..." As if their ethinicity, which landed in israel a month earlier was that much more superior.
