It's the same in any lingo

בַּת-בָּבֶל, הַשְּׁדוּדָה: אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיְשַׁלֶּם-לָךְ-- אֶת-גְּמוּלֵךְ, שֶׁגָּמַלְתּ לָנוּ
אַשְׁרֵי שֶׁיֹּאחֵז וְנִפֵּץ אֶת-עֹלָלַיִךְ-- אֶל-הַסָּלַע

How can one be compelled to accept slavery? I simply refuse to do the master's bidding. He may torture me, break my bones to atoms and even kill me. He will then have my dead body, not my obedience. Ultimately, therefore, it is I who am the victor and not he, for he has failed in getting me to do what he wanted done. ~ Mahatma Gandhi
If I am not for myself, who will be for me? If I am not for others, what am I? If not now, when? ~ Rav Hillel, Pirke Avot

Yes, the shutting down of construction in Yesha is supposed to be a favor returned with "normalization." Well the situation seems as normal as ever with Saudi Arabia standing steadfast behind the Arab League boycott of Israel.

A review of US Commerce Department data conducted by the Post found that the number of boycott-related and restrictive trade-practice requests received by American companies from Saudi Arabia has increased in each of the past two years, rising from 42 in 2006 to 65 in 2007 to 74 in 2008, signifying a jump of more than 76 percent.

The bulk of these requests were related to the companies' or products' relationship to Israel. Typically, Saudi officials ask foreign suppliers to affirm that any goods exported to the desert kingdom are not manufactured in Israel and do not contain any Israeli-made components.

Ya know, now that I think about it, I'm pretty sure that Saudi Arabian entrance into the WTO was being predicated on its pledge to Washington that it would end the boycott. So much for the promises of Arabs.

Yep...situation normal...all fucked up. Why is Bibi going to bring a halt to construction again?

So, ya think all those computers with Intel chips inside them are going on the refuse pile? How about those cell phones...that's's time to post the So You Want To Boycott Israel video's a classic.
