Sex in the Israeli City

By Leo Stein
Israel Correspondent

L iving in Israel opens another world when it comes to sexuality and dating. The
first thing you notice is how freaking beautiful everyone is here, a phenomenon
that makes sense considering the wide array of multi-ethnic integration. (Take one part
Russian woman and one part Moroccan man, and the result is magic). But don't think
for a second that Gainesville charm of yours is going to get you anywhere near an
Israeli hottie. After doing some extensive research, and from much personal experience,
I will provide you with some general guidelines on getting it on in Israel.
First of all, one must take in to account that everyone in this Minnesota-sized
country has to complete a term of mandatory army service. So? American women are
likely to feel they're dating a non-stop commando. In Israel we call them "arsim."
These men are known for displaying an overwhelming sense of macho-ism and blatant
disgust in expressing their emotions. A friend of mine told me how his guy friends once
called him out on being too gentle with his girlfriend. I believe their exact words were,


"Toughen up with your girl, or she'll punch you in the face."
To make matters worse, Israeli men have also acquired a stained reputation when
it comes to infidelity, (just look at the president representing them). This claim, while
more a stereotype than a truth, is important for its insight into Israel women and their
evident paranoia (to be discussed later).
But there's good and bad news for the American ladies. The good news is that Israeli
guys seem to find American girls smarter and more exotic. The bad news. is that they
also see them as being easy. This is because when to it comes to dating, Israeli women
play a much tougher game. Tip for UF chicka: speak high-level English and show these
guys your extroverted side, (they don't handle reticence very well). You should also
compliment them sparingly and by surprise.
UF girls on the prowl in Israel should be aware of a few key concepts before heading
out for a night on the town. Let's say a UF girl decides to go clubbing, and perchance
wears more provocative attire for the occasion. It shouldn't surprise the girl when guys
notice and attempt to flatter her. In Israel, girls wear very exposing outfits to parties, but
if a guy makes even a gesture with his eyes that invokes sexual interest, he better believe
he's going to hear her yell out some nasty words (and not the "good" kind of nasty).
Indeed, the girls here are also known for their toughness. They're bold, loud,
and they command a certain amount of respect wherever they go. They hardly shake it
with guys on the dance floor, and reserve a tremendous amount of love for their number

one choice. Everyone gossips and knows each other in the community, so it's
much less common for a girl to hook up with some random guy at a party,
if for any other reason than its social repercussions. I hate to break it to you
guys, but it takes much longer to get close to these girls than to American
girls. They require constant flirting, attention, and teasing before they'll
even consider starting something with you. They also have the reputation of
being overly jealous and paranoid. As one lady friend told me, "we're always
thinking, 'what does he want from me now,' and 'what is he hiding from
me.'" An American guy is a plus for Israeli women, since they can offer
them an escape from the neighborhood arsim they'd rather forget. Tip for UF
dude: take it very slow, express your feelings (the cheesier the better), never
expect a cheap score, and for God's sake never, ever, interrupt them.
This might sound like a laundry list of problems and challenges, but
Israelis also have wonderful qualities. Both sexes show more open and warm
character traits, to the point that you feel you're good friends inunediately
after your first meeting. This quality also gives them an extraordinary sense of
humor. You also have to, remember that America has its own norms. Israelis
don't do the prom, and dating usually comes.much after they've already
been "going out" with their significant other. So there is no goodnight-kiss
at the.doorstop, or dinner-and-a-movie Friday night. Relationships form
spontaneously and don't work on any standard social convention. And like all
societies, a certain amount of common sense is required (i.e. foreplay, good
hygiene, not waiting long to call back). Israeli men and women both want to
find someone who admires them, adamantly stands up for themselves, and
shows an extraordinary amount of affection once committed.
If you come here knowing this, as well as accept the fact that
everyone here smokes, then you just might find yourself sharing a cigarette
with the sweetest prickly pear this side of Hadera.

By Giselle Mazur

Found an old picture when I was rummaging through a box of photos. It was cracked
at the corners, and the black and white ink was fading in places. But there he was, my
father, young and hip, standing on a corner in his felt hat and disinterested expression.
He must have been about 25 years old when it was taken. Even then he looked like a
rock star.






























When I think about the events that have made his life so rich, I wonder if even then
he knew where the road would take him, there at that corner in New York City. He had
only been out of school for a couple years, graduating the University of Colorado at
Boulder Phi Beta Kappa in anthropology.
He had spent the latter years of his education hiking in the mountains to survey for
digs at Mesa Verde for Native Americans artifacts. He played shows in town with his
band to help pay the rent. As time went on, the shows became more frequent and the
digs less, until one day it was time to move on. He packed what little he owned in the
back of a drive-away truck and drove the 1,800 miles to Manhattan.
The rock star life was hard, struggling to make rert while performing in dodgy bars
and smoke-filled clubs. As time went on, he gained more and more success, getting
jobs as a popular studio musician. He played on albums and commercials, establishing
himself as a main-stay in the biz.
Then that all changed.
He was at a jazz bar in the city and another musician recognized him from his studio
work. The man was Robert Palmer's keyboardist. He offered my father an audition,
and he was hired on the spot. A week later, Dad found himself playing lead guitar and
singing background vocals on tour with the band. Remember "Bad Case of Loving
You"? It climbed to number 14 on the Billboard charts in 1979. This was the big-time.
He traveled the world, playing to crowds of 30,000 screaming fans. He rode in limos and
recorded at Compass Point Studios in Nassau alongside the Rolling Stones, ACDC and
the Talking Heads. He was invited to exclusive social events. He wasn't quite a star, but he
lived like one. I always wondered how he didn't lose himself to the lifestyle- the cliched
lived like one. I always wondered how he didn't lose himself to the lifestyle- the cliched


sex, drugs, rock'n'roll. How did he maintain a religious life on top of his social one'?
Mesa Verde.
When I was very young, my father told me that nothing reinforced his faith in God
like his time on the dig. To see so many beautifully wondrous places- waterfalls that.
cascaded down green cliffs, leaves that changed to the most vibrant colors in the fall
so that it looked like the sky was ablaze. Living with almost nothing except a sleeping
bag and a change of clothes, sometimes getting lucky enough to sleep in a four-walled
shack. There was no temple on the mountain, no Shabbat to attend. The earth was a holy
place in itself. He became a very spiritual person. He learned how to talk to God.
On tour, my father played almost every night. The rock star existence was not
conducive to a conventional religious one. But he never stopped talking to God.
He remembered the incredible places he'd been, and how he had made his own
divine connections.
He used the music as a link to his spirituality, feeling that his best work was
downloaded directly from God. Even now he sees himself as a conduit between God and
the music, whether he is playing professionally, personally or to sing his kids to sleep.
He finally retired from touring to be with his family, and took up the life of a
composer for television jingles. He moved, not surprisingly, to a small mountain town
on the outskirts of Los Angeles and scored TV shows like VH1 's "Behind the Music"
and the Discovery Channel's "The Great Biker Build-Off." At times, he makes a
mistake or hits a wrong note and it sounds more brilliant than the original-- his best
work happens by roo
accident-- with no ''

than he believes
he is a part of

The old picture
hangs in my room right next to my bed, serving as a reminder that yes indeed, anyone
can accomplish.anything. Everyone needs to find religion in their own way. But most
importantly, that even through the sex, the drugs and the rock 'n roll, there is always
room for God.

You can see Ken Mazur on a TV special which will air on PBS in April, a show that
aims to bridge the gap between the western world and the Middle East through music.

Kaller's Walls


(CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1)


crimes are under the age of 18. It is no wonder that we hate when we are old; it seems
we're never taught to love when we are young. There in lies the problem.
The wall helps reveal that we have attacked hatred and ignorance by pruning the
limbs of the hate tree, not by salting it at the roots as we should.
Because we have ineffectively taught tolerance to the youth, and because we were
improperly taught tolerance, the wall remains standing. "It is annoying, inconvenient,
and in your way," Laboon declared. Hate lives. The wall forces us to realize and
remember. The written words act as messengers for our emotions -- emotions ugly,
judgmental, vain.
These numbers foretell of something dark and sinister that sits inside our skin.
The wall helps bring it out. "It acts as a catharsis. Some people go into the rubble to
make sure their brick was broken," Laboon stated. The breaking of the wall is good
catharsis, but is it good change?
As humans, we live with walls. They psychologically represent safety, comfort and
isolation. We know of China's great wonder, we know of Berlin's great breaking, we
know of Pink Floyd's internal oppression, and we see a Jerusalem divided.
The Writing on the Wall project makes me wonder why Jews pray at a wall. The
Western Wall is just a small fragment, a morsel memory of what once stood strong and
proud. This is where every Jew may unfurl tears towards heaven, for all will be seen.
But why do we seek the wall as the place for our soul, and why don't we pray past the
wall? Are we afraid, too afraid to break it down because we will never be able to put it
back up?
We are afraid to move beyond what we've known. We are afraid to attempt seeing
what's on the other side. We are afraid of relinquishing our only monument to our
Jewish memory. Why? Because we cannot foresee a future without the Western Wall,
just as all cannot foresee a future with bigoted words and flagrant phrases. We keep the
Western Wall as a reminder of our tragedy, when, in fact, our only tragedy is honoring
it. Can we envision a future without walls? With the walls of China, without the
Western wall, without the walls in Jerusalem, without the walls at the Texas-Mexico
border, without the walls in our heads; or are we too afraid to witness seeing the holes
in our hearts after the rubble and dust have settled?
With walls erect, we are all failures. The walls in China, Berlin, Jerusalem, and
South Africa proved and prove it.
If you want to succeed, tear down your walls with me.
UF's hate wall is going to be destroyed at 1:20 pm on Feb. 2.

JYoga Pose of the Week


MA, l t to the Houm

B\ Derek Bernstein

O ne got a big monkey off his back. and the other got a little confidence in himself
One groomed to be a quarterback since birth. the other chomped his way into the
NFL. One is the best in the game. the other almost got benched.
Super Bowl XL I is setting itself up to be a tale of two quarterbacks. On the one side
. \ou have Peyton Manning. the cool. calm. collected play -caller for the Indianapolis Colts.
On the opposite side s ex-Gators hurler and current Bears fiont man. Rex Grossman.
T\wo \ er different quarterbacks. one \ en simple goal: Be the Super Bol I champion.
So. \\ho is most likely to be the one to hoist up the Vince Lombardi Trophy ? Let's
break it down
S Manning once again threw for more than 4.000 yards and just for kicks added
S31 touchdown ns. which compared to last year's record-sening 40 touchdowns. I
guess it w\as an off-season for this guy. If you also add the fact that Manning calls
all the plays for the offense from the line of scrimmage, this gu\ seems the Albert
E instein of quarterbacks.
No\w, there might ha\e been some "na. savers" out there. prior to the New\
England game. \\ho said. "M anning just can't \ in the big one." And he\. I \was right
there \ ith \ou.
But b\ drix tng the Colts back from what I thought \\as an insurmountable deficit.
lManning proved to me that he can not only handle the pressure, but just like his best
buddy Tom Brad.y he can produce. Next up for Manning is a Bears defense that is
ihungry to bring back the Super Bol I shuffle.
Led b\ All World middle linebacker Brian Urlacher. the Bears defense might pose
the best chance at slowimg Manning do\n -- if you \\ere looking 1to sp number 18.
know\ this- it isn't going to happen
The Bears better hope to get plenty of pass rush on the ex Vol and make him make
mistakes under pressure. If planning has an\ time to sit back in the pocket, the Bears

Sw w w t h e s


Sill ha e about as good a chance at w inning as Nicole Richey does at the Nathan's
hotdog eating contest.
For Manning. it has been a long road to get to this point. I think I can sum
up ho"\ Manning is feeling at this \ ery moment by doing a little rendition of his
Master Card commercials.
Price of a Super Bowl ticket on eBay?. More than $1.000. Price of ne\ football
cleals to \ear at the Super Bowl\? S100. Finally beating the New England Patriots and
going to his first Super Box I? Priceless.
No\. let's switch ovie to the Bears' front man. Let's just face it: Nobody knows
\what to expect when Rex steps on the field. In Latin. Rex means king. and the Bears
are hoping their young QB acts just like a king and play s the game they need to \ in.
Speaking of acting. I think the Colts defense has been taking acting lessons. In fact,
w\hoe\er their acting coach is desert es the Golden Globe for best male performance.
because the Colts' defense hasn't been play ing like itself.
\here is the team that ga e up more than 2i50 yards rushing to the Jaguars in the
regular season? I don't buy this new fond toughness. I think Rex has the skill and
talent to pull offa \in oxer the Colts' defense, but will that be enough to also beat the
Colts' offense? I don't know.
Grossman has put up decent numbers in the play offs thro\ ing for 282 x yards on 21 '38
passes. But the big number is one One interception. And that \ill be key for Grossnan
in this game. If the Bears keep the ball on the ground, throw \when necessary. and keep
turnovers to a minunum. I believe they ha e a good shot at \ inning this bad boy.
No%% that we have broken down the pla\ callers. it's tmne for me to put my neck
out on the line and gi\e a prediction. I think the Bears \will stun us not only on offense
but on defense, as \well I predict the team's offense i ill put up better numbers than
predicted, but the big stunner \\ill be the Bears defense or lack there of. That's %i hn I
sa\, Colts 38, Bears 27.
"Parn in the citx v. here the heat is on all night on the beach till the break ofdaw\ n.
welcome to Miami. bu e\enidos a Miami." Will Smith had it right when he said that
Miami is bringing the heat. and the cit, won't be an\ hotter than it \\ ill come Februar
when the Champlions from the .-\FC clash .\ ith the NFC champs. Only time w ill tell
which quarterback will be able to finish Smith's song Grossman better hope that
Manning's middle name. W\illiam, is just a coincidence.
