“This is the way the world ends
Not with a bang but a whimper.”
THE KIBBITZER is a whimper; a forlorn attempt to get in the last word while all around fascists and madmen are banging away.
It is satire, based on current news in or about Israel and its totalitarian fantasies. If you can’t take a joke, particularly a joke about Israel, I’m sure there are other blogs that will make you happy.
For those unfortunate enough not to have had Yiddish-speaking grandparents, a kibbitzer is a backseat driver – a person who talks a lot and complains a lot but doesn’t actually do much.
