WATCH: 'Would you do that, for Israel?'

American comedy writers are discovering the wonders of the pro-Israel world. After this Onion piece, comes Saturday Night Live‘s version of the Chuck Hagel Senate confirmation hearing, which ended up not being part of the show, probably because the real-life event turned out to be just as absurd.

Before you go...

A lot of work goes into creating articles like the one you just read. And while we don’t do this for the money, even our model of non-profit, independent journalism has bills to pay.

+972 Magazine is owned by our bloggers and journalists, who are driven by passion and dedication to the causes we cover. But we still need to pay for editing, photography, translation, web design and servers, legal services, and more.

As an independent journalism outlet we aren’t beholden to any outside interests. In order to safeguard that independence voice, we are proud to count you, our readers, as our most important supporters. If each of our readers becomes a supporter of our work, +972 Magazine will remain a strong, independent, and sustainable force helping drive the discourse on Israel/Palestine in the right direction.

      Hilarious! Lindsey Graham will be first in line!

      Laughing at the Israel Lobby and Israel is the thing that will destroy it – taking it seriously, like Scowcroft said of George Bush being as if mesmerized by Sharon and Israel, is precisely how Israel is able to get away with manipulating the US so easily

      William Kristol and netanyahu are only one good journalist away from someone laughing in their faces and their existential evaporation.

      Candy Crawford came close with netanyahu last year

      This is such a good thing – and the metaphor of doing the donkey for Israel is so apt and fitting

      Oyyy Vey…this is sooo Anti-Semitic Blah blah blah! Wonder how Israel’s Hasbara Propaganda Apparatchiks will “Explain” SNL’s “Anti-Semitism?”
      The Israel Lobby had this coming a long time. “Sacrifice your first born child to prove you love Israel – And keep on proving it, in perpetuity.”

      Usual routine of Emotional Black Mail:
      How many Jewish mothers does it take to screw in a light bulb?
      Don’t worry about me, I’ll just sit here in the dark.
