Major BDS Victory: Texas Town Changes Name from ‘Hebron’ to ‘Palestine’

Israel to Change Name of Jerusalem to…

Israel to Change Name of Jerusalem to…

As the United States Supreme Court considers Jerusalem’s status on US passports, the Israeli government is seeking to deflate the negative connotations long associated with its capital city by submitting a referendum to the citizens of Israel that will decide on a new name and motto for the current ‘Jerusalem: God’s Feisty Kitty’. While not a single Israeli government ministry was available for comment on the decision to hold a snap vote, TID has obtained an as yet unconfirmed list...

Senior Saudi Arabian Minister Rejects Rapprochement with Israel

Saudi Commerce Minister His Royal Freshness Prince Nash bin Baba Al-Saud stated on Tuesday that the rash of rumors about dialogue between Riyadh and Jerusalem is little more than a Zionist ruse. “Get real, cousin. This whole ‘from foe to friend’ plotline is as hackneyed as The Dark Night Rises. Jewish screenplay writers in Hollywood have been secretly whipping up and spreading these fairy tales. Coincidentally, Dark Night Rises happens to be my fifth wife’s nickname for my ‘little highness’.”...

MONACO – A powerful cousin of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ali Khameini has defected from the Islamic Republic and relocated to Monaco with his wife, mistress, spotted Siamese cat, two million dollars in unmarked, non-sequential bills – and perhaps some well-guarded secrets regarding Tehran’s plutonium production program. ‘Catch you on the flip side, bitches!

Al Jazeera Viewership Dramatically Down in West Bank

From the West Bank of the Mississippi, locals are tuning out Al Jazeera in droves due to lack of ‘real newsy stuff.’ Local soybean farmer’ Marvin ‘Tweets’ Furlough said, “When they first appeared on cable, we thought Al Jazeera might give us some juicy video from the Mideast, but now they’re showing nothing but rock-throwing punks and camel cutaways.” A similar complaint came from Melvina Twerk of suburban Joliet. “We had high hopes for AJ when they first started, but...

Controversial New Study Claims Palestinian Authority Schoolbooks Teach Reading, Writing and Bomb Making

Controversial New Study Claims Palestinian Authority Schoolbooks Teach Reading, Writing and Bomb Making

Guided by Messianic visions of blowing up two of Islam’s holy sites, some violent Jewish settlers, or ‘asshats’ as they are often known in Israel, have long asserted that the way Palestinian children are educated is proof of the true intentions of the Palestinian leadership vis-à-vis Israel. According to Dr. Zion Ben-Judah, a senior member of the pro-settler Council for a Jewish Tomorrow, “When you google translate: ‘A just and comprehensive peace in the Middle East’ from English to Arabic, you...

Hamas Bombs Make “BOOM” in Israeli Real Estate

Hamas Bombs Make “BOOM” in Israeli Real Estate

Wealthy Jews (really, are there any other kind?) are buying up high priced property in Israel as a hedge against rising anti-Semitism in their present countries of residence. The surge in economic activity is creating a real estate boom as a welcome side effect of the recent war with Hamas. Despite the Gaza conflict creating a spike in global hatred for “dem Jooooos,” the Jewish people have responded as they have for millennia; by pointing out that they are in...

Israeli Facebook community can’t handle that people criticize Israel online

Israeli Facebook community can’t handle that people criticize Israel online

If there is one thing Israelis (original or transplant) feel more passionately about than Israel, it’s people criticizing or complaining about Israel. It appears that the online community of Israel is so effective at over-reacting that they don’t even have to read the articles to mobilize their indignation. Often times a mere whiff of a headline that mentions Israel not followed by ‘cures cancer’ or ‘provides relief aid’ is enough to unleash the deathly gates of hell and cause Israelis...

International Intelligence agencies unable to pin down origin of ‘Khorosan Group’

At an emergency roundtable meeting held at The Hague, Netherlands, the emergence of a previously undocumented player in international terrorism known only as the ‘Khorosan Group,’ has dominated the three-day security symposium. “I’ve heard of them, but I thought it was a management consulting firm.” said one attendee.  “No! You have it all wrong.  Khorosan is a powdered dish soap suitable for septic systems.” screamed another.  Official remarks are still in draft status until the security summit reaches its conclusion...

Retraction: top satirical news site misidentifies radical Muslim clerics

A leading satirical news website, The Mideast Beast, stood accused of gross racism yesterday as it published a story in which it mistakenly mixed up two leading religious firebrands. See “British Home Secretary loses her shit.” “But Sir, they all look the same to me,” moaned dashing reporter Marcus Thunderbolt. “One of them has a fucking hook for a hand and the other one doesn’t, you colossal racist fuck,” retorted the editor. “Sorry.” On a side note, ruggedly handsome reporter, Rani Steelballs, oddly enjoyed...

British Home Secretary loses her shit

The British Home Secretary, Teresa May, has failed to react with restrained dignity on the news that the Jordanians have found Abu Qatada the radical Muslim Cleric and amateur Peter Pan nemesis, not guilty of being a complete lunatic. “Fuck my life!” said May. The normally calm top official for UK domestic affairs was reported to have embedded a stiletto shoe into the head of the unfortunate civil servant tasked with bringing her the news. The Home Office later released a...

Australia the Most Dangerous Place on Earth

Australia the Most Dangerous Place on Earth

Islamic State (IS) militants have now joined the long list of ‘basically fucking everything that is trying to kill you in Australia’.

I knew a mate that was taken out by a Koala bear falling out of a tree, true story. So...

‘Should Scotland leave? Does England care?   As Britain braces itself for Thursday’s referendum on Scottish independence, the United States – having gone over a week without entering global politics– has begun crisis negotiations with representatives from England and Scotland, attempting to persuade them to enter into a two-state solution.
