The Sydney Morning Herald carries this article:

Two gay Israeli men have installed a huge double bed in a New York art gallery and are inviting Arab men to become their "lover" as part of an exhibition called Sleeping With The Enemy.

But the artists, who like to be known simply as Gil and Moti, talk about the project in romantic terms, saying it's about "falling in love" rather than sex.

"The bed is for us to live in. Artistically, three pillows symbolise unity of three people which goes along with the whole concept of make love not war," Gil said.

Heh heh heh! Good on you duckies.

I am just waiting for the right wing conservative pro-Israeli pack to say something … eh no, more likely … froth and foam at their mouth about this abomination.

The abomination link is rather interesting, as the author explains the difference in the Jewish abominations of shrimps and homosexuality. Regarding shrimps he stated:

With shrimp (Leviticus 11:10), the full phrase is sheketz hame lachem, 'they shall be a detestable thing to you.'

'You' meaning the Jewish people.

No, God does not 'hate' shrimp, but He does instruct the Jewish people that they should not eat it as one part of their particular spiritual regimen to be a 'holy people' and a 'light unto the nations.' He made shrimp tasty for non-Jews, so they should enjoy shrimp as He intended. For Jews, we now have fake shrimp, made from kosher fish, to satisfy our desire for the taste of shrimp.

Making something that's detestable to Jews, tasty to goyims? Hmmm, looks as if God is discriminating here?


  1. "For Jews, we now have fake shrimp, made from kosher fish"

    This is something new to me. God is indeed discriminating, wait a minute, aren't some Taosists also the same ... floured abolone, roast duck disguised as vegetarian food?

    The Religious Dilemma ... another idea for Dr M to write a book.

  2. No, that's Buddhists. Taoists don't practice vegetarianism. Some Buddhists do, but it's not mandatory.

    And it's not roast duck disguised as vege. It's actually vege(tofu) made to look and taste like roast duck or abalone.

    It's the Chinese pragmatic character peeping through. Chinese don't believe in denying themselves, like torturing themselves with lettuce and other bleah-stuff while practising vegetarianism. So they develop the culinary art of turning tofu into any damned thing under the sun.
