Nice music video!

Interesting that the Israelis look pretty much like a group of Americans at the beach in California or Florida.

Maybe that's the reason Israel is hated in so much in the world...They look like Americans.

I have been there. And I have to say, getting on the El Al flight to Israel was an endurance thing (grilled for more than 3 hours, as my wife at the time was 3/4 Mexican, could have passed as a Mid easterner), but the flight itself was the most delightful flight I have ever been on. Party time, at least in the back half of the airliner where smoking was allowed. Beer and wine were included in the ticket price.

The rule was, you had to be in the back half (smoking section) and seated to smoke. So smoking passengers in the front half of the airliner would walk to the back and ask if they could sit in my seat (aisle seat) so they could have a smoke.

It was fun and educational to chat with them while they were sitting in my seat. I found Israelis to be extremely friendly and talkative to Americans, at least. Not being an "ugly American" itself had a lot to do with that. Israel is their nation. Who am I to criticize them and the way they do things?
