What is especially amusing is that the mullahs of Iran, arch-foes of
Israel, have said almost the exact same thing, virtually word-for-word.
I think that there is no meaningful distinction between orthodox Jews,
ultra-conservative Muslims, and Fundemenetalist Christians. They're ALL
narrow-minded book-burning scum, and the sooner their memes are excised
from the pool, the better.
(As a data point in support of this conjecture, note that Jodi Hoffman went
from being an Orthodox Jew to a Fundementalist Christian with no noticeable
change in lifestyle or temperament.)
