Yanqui Go Home!
Kever Benjamin City has been enriched by an American oleh hadash (new immigrant), who has assumed the sacred mission of improving the environment of this corner of the Holy Land. He is an American architect, a true Zionist, an idealist of the old race. "I know I am called naive, a dreamer..." he says. The man is a famous professor, a hero of the American environmental architecture scene. In his lectures he predicts the coming end of fueled vehicles, and the urgent need to think about the problem of tens of thousands of abandoned gas stations. He wrote an award-winning paper about transforming these stations into "green" sanctuaries, all over the world. I am afraid if the stays in Kever Benjamin City, cars will be outlawed and we shall have to ride asses, as our ancestors. The use of energy-guzzling lifts will be forbidden since staircases are available. Street asphalt will be broken up and the city reforestated. The original fauna of wild jackals, rabid wolves, poisonous snakes, pest-carrying rats, Anopheles mosquitoes, will be reinstated. Please, America, take him back!
