29 November!

Ok, let’s address this situation. I have had so many people ask me today what the significance of November 29th is. You guys! It is the anniversary of the passing of the UN Partition Plan. That miracle of miracles that gave us our own land!

Surely you’ve seen this a thousand times, but it never gets old, right? (Until I figure out how to do this automatically, start at 15:02)

This is, of course, what the street כ”ט בנובמבר in Katamon is named after. (Note that by calling it “Kaf-tet b’November,” they’ve actually fused the Jewish dating system with the secular one. Nice.)

And yes – Abbas’s move is, if nothing else, poetic.
