Sabraman Superhero Party (smug) Election Sensation

Incredible as it seems, the complex Israeli election scenario has suddenly become far more complex and fascinating with the announcement, at the very last minute and only two or three days before the election date, of the entry of an unknown party with tremendous potential called the Sabraman Superhero Party (SMUG -Hebrew initials). It has literally thrown the entire Israeli election campaign into a wild paroxysm of near despair such as never seen before in Israel or in the civilized world, and most certainly not in the Muddle East. They say that even Netanyahu the Invincible is tearing his hair and gnashing his teeth.

So what’s it all about? What’s so special about a party led by a legendary superhero like Sabraman without any previous election experience, and why are Israel’s millions of voters suddenly having to seriously consider abandoning their earlier very shaky voting decisions and so suddenly firmly decide to support the supposedly politically inexperienced Sabraman. Maybe they have all been bewitched by the fascinating and hypnotic impact of the Sabraman party posters with their potent message of joyful invincibility, and perhaps as much or maybe even more so by the amazing and entrancing Sabraman Superhero Party platform with the following promises:

*The Sabraman Superhero Party will bring peace and prosperity to Israel and the whole Muddle East;

*Every Israeli who votes for Sabraman will receive a new rent-free apartment.

*Israel will overnight become the cleanest country in the world and Jerusalem the cleanest city. Tourists will flock in their ten of millions to see this miracle and to witness the Sabraman Start-Up Nation miracle.

*All debts will be cancelled.

*No more traffic accidents on congested roads. All Israeli cars will now be crash-proof.

*All Israeli schoolchildren will be taught English by Sabraman comic book textbooks and will receive kosher SpeakEnglish tablets.

All this has been wonderfully organized by the Sabraman SMUG Party in a single day, and people everywhere are queuing to receive their free copies of the Israel Tomorrow Sabraman Party newspaper.

Seeing Sabraman and his colleagues flying non-stop from city to city to address overflow election meetings has given rise to the wide-ranging impression particularly among the religious sector, that ”the Days of the Messiah” have almost arrived, and even large numbers of previously non-religious Israelis are beginning to attend synagogue services and eat kosher.

Thanks to the Sabraman election victory anti-Semitism will be entirely eradicated throughout the world because everybody will henceforth love and admire the amazing new Israel led and inspired by the Sabraman Superhero Party. And many ex-antisemites the world over are now looking feverishly for their Jewish roots.
Jews from all the lands of exile will flock to the new and unrecognizable Super-Israel infallibly led by Sabraman and his superhero colleagues. The Negev Desert is being de-sanded and redeveloped to house all the newcomers demanding to settle in Israel.
And in case you are saying that all this is simply fake news I have just received a message that President Trump has tweeted to be expected in Israel to take part in the Sabraman Superhero Party election day victory celebration with Sabraman and his staff.
There is of course a terrific pre-election uproar since all the major parties are rushing to court to try and get the Sabraman Superhero Party disqualified on the grounds that politicians who fly and have supernatural powers are unfit to sit in the Knesset. That would be a tragedy don’t you think? So, friends, don’t be lazy, do the same as everyone else and VOTE SMUG!!!
