A useful diversion to take take media attention away from the trouble in Beit Shemesh.

Shiver me timbers as Popeye used to say. Mahmoud Abbas plays cops and robbers at the Church of the Nativity where man-god was supposedly born. And we Yidden get to keep the peace at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre where the man-god went up to meet himself in Heaven, hmmm. A complicated mess. Now only if Ramat Beit Shemesh Bet can get together with Ramat Beit Shemesh Aleph to learn some lessons in common decency, that is Bet learning from Aleph since Bet always follows Aleph, then we can become the world's happy policemen. We can keep the Roman Catholics, Greek Orthodoxers, Armenian Orthodoxers, Copts, and I forget the other Orthodoxers from killing each other when the roof is collapsing in the Armenian part of the Church but the Greeks won't allow the repairmen through the front entrance. And then the PA's keystone cops can run after the same bunch in Beit Lechem. What a happy bunch we will be. Gut Shabbos or Shabbat Shalom or however you say it in Ladino.
