We proudly announce the last-minute entry into the Israeli election race of a new and surprise party, the TOY Isranglo Party made up exclusively of young and not so young Israelis of English and American extraction, founded and led by none other than the venerable 92-year-old Post columnist, ex-New Yorker, Arthur “Art” Frankenstine, and the formidable 25-year-old jazz pianist Lily Disraeli who claims descent from no less an historical figure than Benjamin Disraeli himself. The other Israeli parties are watching in awed amazement as Israeli Anglos of all ages and persuasions flock to join the new party which is working at great speed to present its political program and the party anthem to be composed by no less a figure than the gifted Jerusalem Anglo rock singer-songwriter Ben “Baldy” Rubin. In this issue of the Times of Yisrael we introduce the election platform and personalities of this remarkable new Israeli party. Meantime spread the word and prepare to join in the election fun.

*All members will be required to prove their English or American or Anglo ancestry and that they can still speak English.
*Cricket and baseball will replace football as Israel’s main sports.
*Every Israeli will be able to earn a living, and giving, wage – i.e. a minimum wage of $5000 per month with the dollar pegged at NIS10 per dollar. This, and the 3-day working week, and free housing for TOY Party members, is part of the TOY Party’s acclaimed “social justice” program.
*Every day at 4 p.m. the Knesset will adjourn for tea and scones.
*All American and English Jews will automatically become Israeli citizens and pay a nominal tax to the Israel Treasury to help balance our national deficit.
* Reading and understanding the Times of Yisrael will be compulsory Bagrut subjects
*All cars will have a top speed of 50 kmh and Israeli drivers will drive on the left in order to cut road accidents by 95 percent.
*Isranglos will occupy the presidency, premiership and IDF Commander positions
*Hebrew will be read and written from left to right to make life easier for Olim from English-speaking countries.
*At elections rallies Isranglo members will brandish their copies of the TOY and sing the TOY anthem after the Hatikva.
*Isranglo youngsters who become bat or barmitzvah will be eligible to vote for the TOY Party.
*English will not replace Hebrew as the main language in Israel, but the TOY is introducing a female version of Hebrew, Shebrew, to make life easier for Israeli overworked and underpaid women.
