Newsverse: Great Israeli Pickup Lines

Sabbar Kashur, 30, was sentenced to 18 months in prison on Monday after the court ruled that he was guilty of rape by deception. According to the complaint filed by the woman with the Jerusalem district court, the two met in downtown Jerusalem in September 2008 where Kashur, an Arab from East Jerusalem, introduced himself as a Jewish bachelor seeking a serious relationship. The two then had consensual sex in a nearby building before Kashur left.The Guardian, July 21

Hi! You know you look a lot
Like my great aunt Esther.
I always thought she’s pretty hot.
Looked good in polyester,

Walking down Miami Beach
Or by the Hudson River.
If she were here, then she could teach
You how to make chopped liver.

You’re the honey in the land
Of milk—and, in the Bible.
Where you stand is Promised sand.
I swear on Grandpa Leibel.
We Jews don’t do these things by halves
Not when it comes to sex. You
Know I love your golden calves
I can’t wait to annex you.
