Petty thievery is a more profitable job than pool hustling, which it resembles, requires far less talent and training, and is equally devoid of promise.

Peccable reflections

With the political and religious uproar in the Middle East, we here at Loon Watch wondered about the similarities and differences between the Muslims and the Jews. We are told by pontificators of a commonality twist those religions.
What might those be.


  1. Neither religion will consume pork
  2. Both reside in the Middle East

Well that’s a start on the comparisons.What else might we find?

  1. Jewish women may legally drive a car. Oops, no similarity for Muslim women.
  2. Jewish women may appear in public without a male escort. No similarity here.
  3. Jewish women may bath in public on mixed beaches. No ground gained with this.
  4. Jews don’t have ‘Honor Killings’. Oh, those poor Muslim females.
  5. Muslim women are required to get a clitoral excision. Jewish women, not so much.
  6. Jewish women daily expose a scandalous amount of skin. Muslim women wear a tent in public.
  7. Muslim women may be legally beaten. With Jews, that’s a no-no.
  8. Jewish women can be educated to high levels. Muslim women are forbidden any schooling.
  9. Jewish women are allowed to have headaches when they don’t want sex. Muslim women will be given a headache if they refuse.
  10. Muslim women cook all the meals. Jewish women make all the reservations.

Well there it is. Look at all the similarities.

They don’t eat pork and they live in the Middle East.
