ADL Rips 'SNL' for 'Offensive' Weekend Update Joke About Israel

On Saturday's episode, "Weekend Update" co-anchor Michael Che said, "Israel is reporting that they've vaccinated half of their population. I'm going to guess it's the Jewish half."

[quote]Antisemitic libels are not funny. In fact, in Israel, all citizens – Jewish, Muslim, Arab and Christian, are equally eligible and have the equal opportunity to receive the anti-Covid vaccine. The priorities are health care workers of all backgrounds (including Israel’s many Arab physicians and health care workers) and the elderly of all backgrounds. Approximately 70% of Israeli Arabs over 60 have already received the vaccine.

[quote]Israel also offered the vaccine to the autonomous Palestinian Authority (“PA”) and PA President/PLO Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, even though Israel has no obligation to do so. The Oslo accords make clear that the PA is responsible for all issues affecting the health of the PA’s citizens. The PA and Abbas adamantly rejected Israel’s extraordinary, generous humanitarian offer.

[quote]The PA also refused supplies to combat Covid delivered on the UAE’s airline because they were delivered through Israel. However, despite the PA’s refusal, Israel delivered vaccines and other supplies to combat COVID and medical training to the PA. The PA has been using the Israeli vaccines, without crediting Israel!

[quote]In addition, Israel’s Magen David Adom has been vaccinating PA citizens who hold permits to work in Israel.

What you report is factual, R17 (Palestinian refusal of Israel's offer, the different political entities and citizenships).

What's interesting is that Che's implies that Israel is half-Jewish, half-Arab, which is exactly what the most extreme supporters of Palestine would say: that there is only one sovereign between the river and the sea, Israel, whose residents are 50-50 Jewish-Arab. The formal State of Israel is more like 75-80% Jewish.

"basing the premise of the joke on factual inaccuracies and playing into an antisemitic trope in the process"

Either Israel is a theocratic ethnostate (in which case criticism or jokes about the Israeli government could potentially be considered antisemitic) or it is not (therefore criticism or jokes about the Israeli government are not antisemitic). You can't have your cake and eat it too.

Diluting the meaning of antisemitism helps no one in the long run, ESPECIALLY not Jewish people. Do you really think the average person is going to care about antisemitism a generation from now when you are having the ADL, CPMAJO and the AJC throwing a fit over a Saturday Night Live joke, organizing petitions and demanding written apologies? These "Boy who cried wolf" performances will have exact opposite effect of what was intended: people become desensitized and will eventually stop caring about being called X word.

It isn't a theocracy. Israel is governed by the Knesset and a prime minister.

[quote]or it is not (therefore criticism or jokes about the Israeli government are not antisemitic).

No, the government need not be a theocracy for jokes about the government or about Israel in general to be anti-semitic or to "play into an antisemitic trope." Israel's population is by majority Jewish or of Jewish ancestry. Che's "joke" implied that Israelis were treating Jewish citizens preferentially. That is not based in any facts adduced in this thread and it does, indeed, play into an anti-semitic trope.

The total amount paid to incarcerated or released terrorists in 2020 was more than NIS 512m. because those who had previously been employed by the PA continue receiving their salaries while in prison, according to PA budgetary regulations.

[bold]Olmert: Abbas Never Responded to My Peace Offer[/bold]

Former prime minister Ehud Olmert said Sunday that during his tenure he offered Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas an unprecedented peace offer, based on a return to the 1967 borders and a fair demographic land arrangement which would see heavily Jewish areas in the West Bank remain under Israeli control.

"I offered a land swap, I offered a solution for Jerusalem, where the Jewish part would remain under Israeli authority and the Arab sections would be given to the jurisdiction of a Palestinian state," he told a conference at Tel Aviv University.

According to Olmert's plan, the Holy Basin would be demarcated under the rule of five different states with access available to believers of all religions. The offer was based on the agreements reached at a 2007 summit in Annapolis Maryland, Olmert said, and would be carried out in accordance with the Road Map for peace.

From December 2020:

[bold]Palestinians: We didn't ask Israel for COVID-19 vaccine[/bold]

. . .

The official told The Jerusalem Post that the Palestinians will soon receive nearly four million Russian-made vaccines against COVID-19.

The PA, with the help of the World Health Organization, has managed to secure the vaccine from other sources, the official added, without elaborating.

Another PA Ministry of Health official said that he expected vaccinations in the West Bank and Gaza Strip to begin next month. He, too, clarified that the PA has not asked Israel to supply the Palestinians with the vaccine. “We are working on our own to obtain the vaccine from a number of sources,” the official added. “We are not a department in the Israeli Defense Ministry. We have our own government and Ministry of Health, and they are making huge efforts to get the vaccine.”

[bold]Is Israel discriminating against Palestinians with vaccine?[/bold]

The Observer is wrong: Israel has vaccinated more Palestinians than any other country on earth

. . .

What about the Palestinians? First of all, Israel is providing vaccines to everyone in its health network, including Palestinian residents of East Jerusalem who have Israeli health care. Second, there are cases of non-citizens in Israel getting vaccinated by showing up at one of the mass vaccination points. This is because the mission of health professionals is to vaccinate anyone who shows up. The virus doesn’t distinguish between populations, and neither does medical care. The Guardian refers to Arab residents of east Jerusalem as Palestinians: therefore, by its own definition Israel has not excluded Palestinians.

The Palestinian Authority, a semi-autonomous government that is recognised as the state of Palestine by 139 countries administers health care to millions of its own citizens. The Guardian’s article on Israel ‘excluding’ Palestinians notes that the ‘cash-strapped Palestinian Authority, which maintains limited self-rule in the territories, is rushing to get vaccines. One official suggested, perhaps optimistically, that shots could arrive within the next two weeks… Despite the delay, the authority has not officially asked for help from Israel.’

In other words, the Guardian that asserts Palestinians were excluded goes on to admit that they were not excluded. Put it this way. The Palestinian Authority has not asked Israel to vaccinate its public. Hamas, the terror group that has run the Gaza Strip since 2006 after throwing the Palestinian Authority out, has not asked Israel for vaccinations. Ali Abed Rabbo, director-general of the Palestinian health ministry, did not tell the Guardian he wants Israel to procure vaccinations. There is a glaring inconsistency here.

In the 1930s there were around 16 million Jews in the world. Then some people did something and the Jewish population dropped by 6 million. After 75 years the population is around 15 million, 7 million of them living in Israel, about 75% of the population.

[quote][R79] I think you got my post wrong, what I said is, the success of Israel's vaccine plan (credit to its government!) reinforced the old stereotype of shrewd/cunning Jews.

Sorry, I misread your "this is why people hate Jews (isn't it awful)" comment as "this is why people hate Jews (uh-huh)".

R95 The only "obstruction" is in your Jew-hating little mind, Mahmoud. See R75 for details.

The ADL can just fuck off in this case. All they’re doing is calling attention the fact that he’s right.

R95 And how are they doing that? Oh wait, you cannot answer because you know you are wrong.

Tip of the iceberg. Expect to see more anti-Semitism under this new regime. Look at what happened in the UK.

Especially when the Vice-President is comfortable with bigots and their bigotry.

The ADL stays in business by being "offended."

R103, I agree. BLM, too.

The joke was so racist it even offended racists.

Then expect to see the Jews respond in kind. We've had enough of your blasphemy against our God.

[italic]SCTV[/italic] was funnier.

[italic]The Carol Burnett Show[/italic] was funnier.

[italic]In Living Color[/italic] was funnier.

[italic]MAD TV[/italic] was funnier.

Even [italic]The Muppet Show[/italic] was funnier and putting a warning label on Jim Nabors constitutes homophobia. I see your race card and raise you a gay card.

So many gay men are relaxed about anti Jewish racism. It really doesn't bother them that the anti Jewish voices the amplify hate gays even more than they hate Jews.

Most of the 6.500 workers killed in Qatar will be dark skinned people and a majority will be Muslim, but so few people who think of themselves as left wing can get upset about their deaths because they were at the hands of an oppressive Islamic regime.

It didn't stop Hitler from trying to kill us both. Gays should support Israel because Israel does more to support gays than the rest of the Middle East. In fact, one could argue homosexuality is to sex as Judaism is to religion.

That is a racist statement because Arabs are white and Jews are, always have been, and always will be of color. Opposing a government run by POCs when they use retaliatory force against white supremacists makes you complicit in said white supremacy.

China kills more Muslims than Israel and you round-eyed racist ofays fucking know it.

R1 here. In retrospect, I think two facts might have mitigated against SNL's including this joke (because on first hearing, it is funny):

1. A Black man cracking it isn't a good look, considering our current milieu of the "Jews will not replace us!" Charlottesville chants and the (now-cancelled) invitation by CPAC to that anti-Semite "Jews stole their fake religion from Black Egyptians" Pharaoh guy to speak this weekend.

2. The "too soon" rule might apply to jokes about Covid-19 and vaccines, while we're lowering flags and all.

Datalounge loves a good Jew joke. Not so much a Muslim or trans joke though.
