Loser List #13: Hasan Bolkhari & Hazem Abu Ismail

Hasan Bolkhari

So one of the more popular things for Israel-bashers to do of late is to take random thing in the world, for example an animal or a product, and relay its actions or characteristics as antisemitic or something of the sort. What I mean is that they find some random piece of pop-culture and go on to say that’s its part of a crazy “Jewish/Zionist conspiracy theory” of how we’re taking over the world or some other nonsense.

Loser List #12: The jerk who dumped their garbage bag on my lawn this morning (AND didn’t recycle either)

Being clean is an important thing, both spiritually and physically. And while you can apply the connotation of what’s clean and dirty to a number of different things, one the most basic appropriations is usually given towards the disposal of garbage – aka taking out the trash.

Regardless of who you are and where you live, no one is exempt from this necessary task of orderly removing their garbage from their places of domain and placing it in another area where someone else will take it away to a bigger area full of other people’s’ garbage.
