There is a Rom Com Coming Out Called Jewtopia

Yes this is a trailer for a real movie and no, we have no idea why a man pretending to be Jewish to get a girl is interesting but that's apparently the premise of the movie Jewtopia, coming out this week in very limited release.

Ron Paul Not A Bigot, Just A Chronically Uncool Dude Who Hates Spanish…

Orthodox Israelis Spit On Whorish 8-Year-Old Girl For Going To School

An American girl attempting to walk to her Jewish school in Israel is subjected to daily taunting and physical intimidation so bad that she says it makes her afraid to go to school.
