NEWS ITEM: Video-porn is flourishing in Israel, via a Web site that features amateur performers. The latter consist of homegrown Israelis, both Jews and Arabs.


Voyeurs, rejoice! Be not forlorn!
There’s solace in Israeli porn!
(The critics praise, ad hominem,
“Sex Party in Jerusalem”).

Both Arabs and the Hebrew tribe
Alike to sinful site subscribe.
They flock to view extreme hard-core
In numbers never seen before.

The proletaire with cash to spare
Shell out to see what’s “barely” there.
The Web site’s theme, “Make Love, Not War,”
Now thrills these viewers to their core.

No Book of Revelations e’er
Revealed such detail! (Wouldn’t dare!).
Our ancient prophets foretold well:
That profit-motives could propel
The nation to the point where greed
Might triumph over morals, creed.

Now in the land of milk and honey,
The shekel reigns — it’s rule by money!


Tsu Yiddish kumt a naye vort,
Un oykh tsu Is-ra-el iz dort:
Dos vort iz porn, a shmutsike zakh
Vos mener haltn fun a sakh.

In Yisroel, oyf video,
Iz yetst a koytik, brudik show:
’Siz take grob un take mies,
Zey tsaygn alts, fun kop biz fis.

Di voynershaft, geshupt mit gelt,
Zey loyfn dos tsu zen! m’kvelt!
“Makh libe, nisht milkhome mer”:
M’folgt dem moto everywhere!

Oyf hard core nemen zey a kuk,
Oyf kernkerndik they look
Altsding, bay zey, iz quite okay
Makht-organen are quite blasé.

Neviim, lang tsurik, agreed
Dos folk vet a korbm vern fun greed.
Der foroyszog has come to pass,
Der shekel kenigt alts, alas!
