Burka Babes Take Over Beit Shemesh!

scary stuff - not for the faint of heart.



Update: Just to be absolutely sure there is no misunderstanding, this video is 100% real. fake. Need proof? See what Mom in Israel has to say. (And she's one of the original Burka bloggers...after me of course :)

Hat-tips to: Lurker for sending me the email, and to the very talented Sara K Eisen and friends from the Nofei Aviv neighborhood of Beit Shemesh. Updated to include the following: Sara K Eisen's VERY TALENTED friends are Talli Rosenbaum (she of the swinging cellphone), Jaely Kurtz (who said, let's do a movie about those burqa ladies...), and Deb Weisblatt (who went to Ramle foraging for the Burqas!). Also Raanan Rosenbaum, 19, who is an amazing video editor, if you're making a simcha...


Wherever I am, my blog turns towards Eretz Yisrael טובה הארץ מאד מאד

Sara K Eisen: We KNOW this was a Purim video! How can you take a blog named muqata (see the banner) THAT seriously?

Besides; the Forward Article you show in the video (still shot) includes credit to this blog for breaking the story to the jblogosphere :)

Sara E said...

well...then hat tip!

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Sara E: Hat-tip to WHO? Do you have a blog I could hat-tip too?
I received an anonymous email tip about the video...

Sara E. said...

LOL...I punctuated incorrectly.

Do-over:

Well, then...Hat Tip!! (Rashi: I tip my hat to YOU, re: the Forward Article.)

Sorry Ladies, don't take this personally but a lot more padding is needed. But, a great idea.

Let's celebrate. Waffles for everyone.

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Sara: OK, I'm updating the post with a hat-tip to everyone :)

Those Ninja/Burka outfits are from Shuk Ramle/Lod?!

If you send me Raanan's email, we'll give him a plug as well.

(Funny people like yourselves should definitely be blogging!)

Gila said...

Oh-hilarious! Brilliantly done! Love the scene in Aroma.

Scraps said...

1) Your hands are showing. You clearly are still lacking in your understanding of tzniut.
2) In a couple of scenes, your legs show--oy vey!!! Indeed, your lack of understanding of tzniut grows by the minute.
3) The shiny letters on the outside of your burqas attract attention to yourselves and are untzanua. How many more times must I point out your lack of understanding of true tzniut?!

And....

4) Don't worry, the above is TOTALLY meant in jest. Happy post-Purim! :-D

FrumGirl said...

That was priceless! Thanks, Jameel!

Sara E said...

1. raanan rosenbaum (amazing video editor) is at raanan3000@gmail.com
2. me having a blog would be like an alcoholic with beer in the fridge; i resist the temptation to write and enjoy it, so i can have time to write and get paid for it (here i see my analogy is faulty b/c i guess no one gets paid for drinking beer...but you know what i mean)

Jameel @ The Muqata said...

Sara E: Lousy excuse! Blogging frees the soul :)



(And to the stupid commenter above, this is a family blog, so inappropriate comments are deleted.)

Sara E said...

May free the soul...but not the schedule.

I don’t know how you bloggers manage to keep a gr8 blog going and still do life.

Kol hakavod, im just not there…..

Yet.

[apparently i posted on the wrong post/site (serandez)...]

no makeup, sheitels, or having to pick out what to wear every day? what a life! :)

why were their knees repeatedly displayed (such as during the jogging scene)? very immodest...

Balabusta in Blue Jeans said...

I assumed the big letters referred to sins they were overcoming--like Hester Prynne's A...

bernie said...

We need more stuff like this- women in burqas should be ridiculed, Jewish, Islamic, whatever.

I am an Atheist but if I were religious I would believe covering up the female body in such a manner is a sin against God. It is equivalent to saying He made the female human form so evil, so disgusting and filthy that no man should view any part of it from head to toe.

Perhaps my view of God is of a Creator who made us in his image; sadly there are those on this planet that think that image is an abomination if it has breasts.

I think that this blog is very interesting, i love when people talk about Israel because these people has many different cultures, and i think that is good to know some of it cultures.

I like this post because I like to know a little bit more about other cultures because that's perfect to increase my knowledge.
