Mo’ Genocide Blues


For a people accused of genocide against the Arab population, we (still) sure suck it it.

As the Jewish year heads to a close, the Population and Immigration Authority released its statistics for the past year, among them birth and death rates, and of course, the list of the most in-demand names for newborns in 5778.

As has been the case for many years, the most popular name given to newborn boys for the entire population was Muhammad. Among the Jewish population, Ariel was the winner, previously only the third-most popular name for Jewish boys. David stayed in second place, unchanged from 5777.

Of course, I am being facetious. You should all know by now that such accusations of genocide and apartheid resemble what is in a baby’s diaper.
