Mondial

“Mondial” that’s the Hebrew word for the World Cup. And while this World Cup is going on I get the impression Israelis favor Germany to some extend; traditionally Israelis support Holland. I watched the Germany-Ghana game at a beach in Tel Aviv, public viewing. And it seemed that everybody wanted Germany to win.

The Little General for sure is a supporter of Germany. Yesterday she sent me updates about the goals while I was sitting in the Yeshiva. And lately the Little General reasoned which of the teams are worth of sympathy. Brazil was out fast, since Brazil built up friendship with Iran lately. Argentina is not popular in her ranking, don’t know why. England, well, England. The English killed an uncle of her when he was a baby, in the 40s, a British soldier took him threw him on the ground; so, no, England is out. Spain, no no, “they are all anti-Semites”, till today. But what about Germany, wasn’t there anything? Sometimes I get the impression, that Israelis feel sorry for Germans; sometimes I have the impression that Israelis feel sorry for the Germans, because the Germans have this terrible past.
