Psst, are you ready for some fun? I’ll let you in on it on one condition: don’t blow the secret. This is too good and funny to be true and I don’t want to spoil it by having anyone squeal.
I was looking through my Facebook profile and noticed one of my Friends had linked to a new page seemingly created by Dan Halutz. He’s the former chief of staff of the IDF who commanded the ignominious Lebanon war while he wheeled and dealed with his stock broker over his investment portfolio. Perhaps his distraction contributed to the IDF’s lackluster performance in the war. I say lackluster not because the Israelis didn’t kill enough Lebanese. They did that–somewhere around 1,200 died during the month of that war. But the performance was lackluster in that over 100 Israelis were killed, all of northern Israel was a barren wasteland for a month, and Hezbollah was neither dislodged nor vanquished–all of which was promised by Halutz before and during the war.
Some Israeli jokester has created a spoof website that is deliciously ironic. Not to mention that fabulous real photo of Halutz looking like George Clooney in a tank and yukking it up. Here are some of the more hilarious Wall segments:
- Fighter jet pilot, soldier and general.

- What do you feel when you drop a 1-ton bomb on a residential building? “A slight bump to the (airplane’s) wing” – D. Halutz

- I have a Wikipage:
Some of the comments by Dan’s Friends are pretty funny:
Dan Halutz Going off-line untill monday. happy new year!Happy New Year! Maybe your New Year’s resolution should be not to kill as many children, yes?
What makes all of this even more delicious is the fact that real live right wing Israeli politicians have been hoodwinked by the satirical page and have “friended” Dan, including Likud MK Danny Dannon and settler extremist Moshe Feiglin. It’s all too funny for words: enjoy. But let’s keep this our little secret.
