So at first I thought Geggy was buying up infomercial airtime, when I woke up to this:

"Just $350 will send one Jew back to Israel!"

"For just $1400, you can send FOUR Jews back to Israel!"

It was a little weird because begging for money on TV is not really a Jewish thing, the rules on charity are pretty strict. But after a little research I found that this is some Christian organization acting on behalf of Jews (uh huh) and, hell, they even had Netenyahu on there.

Still, it was pretty weird. If it had been 65, 70 years ago, I wonder if there would have been any infomercials about donations to send Jews somewhere. Not Madagascar, I'm guessing.

Very weird.
