Sorry. Yasher coach is a phrase much like L'Chaim and Mazal Tov - all relatively common.
I'm sure it was! I think it sounds great. You know, other than being God's chosen people (which is a blessing other ethnicities would love to have!), the Jews have very little to celebrate and be thankful for. I think it speaks volumes that one of the few things Israel can celebrate is the Holy destruction of one of their powerful enemies. I empathize with the plight of the Jews and Israel. Just as the bible made clear would happen, the entire world hates the Jews. I find it immensely disturbing that many Americans, particularly the LP's (Liberal Progressives), would celebrate the destruction of Israel. Just like the Muslims in the Middle East, many American LP's (though they claim to be humanitarian) salivate at the thought of "Zionists" being eliminated. They consider the Jews a scourge; a plague that needs to be eradicated for the betterment of mankind. You know. The same stuff Hitler went around proselytizing about. And I don't mean that as an attack. Again, I've witnessed it first hand and I'm really concerned and appalled by it. Most LP's I've come across believe the best foreign policy decision we could make right now would be to end our alliance with Israel. If I were to make an educated guess, I'd say that with the LP's in charge, USA-Israel relations and trust are at an all-time low. And that makes me sad. Since WWII, the Jews never needed a friendly, helping hand more than they do today.Some 14 or 15 years ago, I attended a seder specifically geared for children. There were toy frogs and locusts, and sunglasses for the days of darkness. It was a blast.

I pretty much agree with LincolnSpecter in #25. I don't want to see Israel destroyed but I do take issue with a lot of its policies, particularly around the settlements. But if we're going to continue this discussion, perhaps we should start another thread under politics and society. We're getting off the main topic of the orange on the seder plate and the transmission of myth.

Likewise, there are a lot of people in the US who want to define any criticism of the Obama Administration as Racism. To my mind, that is ridiculous.There are a lot of people in the US who want to define any criticism of the Israeli government as Anti-Semitism. To my mind, that's ridiculous.
