Laughing About President Trump’s Visit to Israel and Beyond

Trump: I love the people of Israel – especially with ketchup!

Most of the jokes are not about Trump but by him.

How he can play a home game while he’s abroad, becomes clear when you see how all the local Middle-Eastern leaders compete with each other how to make their flattery of him seem sincere.

Decades ago, Israel adopted the Russian word for chaos: balagan. Israeli “management” is even less systematic than a faint word as chaotic. We use balaganistic. Turns out that Trump outdid us. He is even more doing his job on the fly than Israelis! It earned him a new title: Mr. Balagan and mismanagement.

Ever since Shmuley Boteach reveals Stephen Bannon’s wall of promises, we learned why the president needs to fly on such a large airplane: Stephen’s board wouldn’t fit anything smaller – but you’ll see that again Trump will be blamed for it.

Ever wondered why Saudi Arabia and Egypt are excluded from Trump’s ban. Why? Simple – how else could he make it home again?

Don’t forget, there’s not a country in Europe that would have accepted him as refugee, except Russia, but how could he spy for them if he’s located inside the Russian Federation, the largest country in the world (it’s huge)?

Still, there are rumors that his enormously successful tour abroad (huge too) could leave him stranded right there, because of the witch hunt back-home.

I want to reassure you all. He can easily fly on to his friend, the President of the Philippines, ever since Trump adds the Philippines’ Duterte to list of authoritarian world leaders he’s praised. I’m sure that he’ll be graciously welcomed to become part of Israel’s Invisible Filipino Work Force. It’s huge. It’s fantastic. Believe me.

About the Author
To subscribe to his daily blog posts, click on the circle next to the blogger's picture, containing a dot with two quarter circles around it (the Feed Computer icon). * The author is a fetal survivor of the pharmaceutical industry (DES - Diethylstilbestrol), born in 1953 to two Dutch survivors who met in the largest concentration camp in the Netherlands, Westerbork, and holds a BA in medicine (University of Amsterdam). He taught Re-evaluation Co-counseling, became a social activist, became religious, made Aliyah, and raised three wonderful kids. He wrote an unpublished tome about Jewish Free Will. He's a vegan for 8 years now. He's an Orthodox Jew but not a rabbi. * His most influential teachers (chronologically) are: his parents, Nico (natan) van Zuiden and Betty (beisye) Nieweg, Wim Kan, Mozart, Harvey Jackins, Marshal Rosenberg, Reb Shlomo Carlebach and lehavdiel bein chayim lechayim: Rabbi Dr. Natan Lopes Cardozo, Rav Zev Leff and Rav Meir Lubin. * Previously, for decades, he was known to the Jerusalem Post readers as a frequent letter writer. For a couple of years he wrote hasbara for the Dutch public. His fields of attention now are varied: Psychology (including Sexuality and Abuse), Medicine (including physical immortality), Science, Politics (Israel, the US and the Netherlands, Activism - more than leftwing or rightwing, he hopes to highlight Truth), Oppression and Liberation (intersectionally, for young people, the elderly, non-Whites, women, workers, Jews, GLBTQAI, foreigners and anyone else who's dehumanized or exploited), Integrity, Philosophy, Jews (Judaism, Zionism, Holocaust and Jewish Liberation), Ecology and Veganism. Sometimes he's misunderstood because he has such a wide vision that never fits any specialist's box. But that's exactly what many love about him. Many of his posts relate to affairs from the news or the Torah Portion of the Week or are new insights that suddenly befell him. * He hopes that his words will inspire and inform, reassure the doubters but make the self-assured doubt more. He strives to bring a fresh perspective rather than bore you with the obvious. He doesn't expect his readers to agree. Rather, original minds must be disputed. In short, his main political positions are: anti-Trumpism, for Zionism, Intersectionality, non-violence, democracy, anti the fake peace process, for original-Orthodoxy, Science, Free Will, anti blaming-the-victim and for down-to-earth optimism. Read his blog how he attempts to bridge any discrepancies. He admits sometimes exaggerating to make a point, which could have him come across as nasty, while in actuality, he's quit a lovely person to interact with. He holds - how Dutch - that a strong opinion doesn't imply intolerance of other views. * His writing has been made possible by an allowance for second generation Holocaust survivors from the Netherlands. It has been his dream since he was 38 to try to make a difference by teaching through writing. He had three times 9-out-of-10 for Dutch at his high school finals but is spending his days communicating in English and Hebrew - how ironic. G-d must have a fine sense of humor. In case you wonder - yes, he is a bit dyslectic. November 13, 2018, he published his 500st blog post with the ToI. * He likes doing age-appropriate and age-inappropriate things and looks forward to getting to know his timeless mature out-of-the-box soul mate. * To send any personal reaction to him, scroll to the top of the blog post and click Contact Me.
