Egyptian Candid Camera Show Where Celebs Are Told They Are on a Israeli TV Channel

A video featuring scenes from an Egyptian candid camera series is garnering attention on the Internet. The show, created by Memri TV, includes clips of Egyptian celebrities being told they are appearing on an Israeli channel.

The video starts with an interview between a female host and actor Ayman Kandeel “Tuhami.” Kandeel is friendly at first but grows angry as a caller tells him he’s being featured on an Israeli program. The actor gets into an argument with a producer, ultimately assaulting the original woman he was speaking with.

In the second portion of the segment, Egyptian actress Mayar Al-Beblawi makes an appearance.

“They keep whining about the Holocaust, or whatever it’s called,” she begins, before being told she is on an Israeli channel and removing her microphone in anger.

In the final part, actor Mahmoud Abd Al-Ghaffar is fed the same lie, which incites shouting. Al-Ghaffar yells “You are a Jew” at a producer and hits him about the head. When told it was all a prank, Al-Ghaffar says, “I hate the Jews to death.”

In finishing the segment, the female host chalks the extreme reactions up to “patriotism.”

Weekend Storm May Break Boston Record

Why not? We’ve come too far to be second best.

Models show the system bringing 3 to 6 inches across the region, but that may be enough to topple the snowfall total record for Boston.

“I know you don’t want to hear about it, but it’s only 3 to 6 inches of snow for us. That’s pretty much a dusting this year,” StormTeam 5’s meteorologist Mike Wankum said.

Currently, Boston’s 2014-15 snow total sits at 102 inches — just 5.6 inches shy of the current record set in 1995-96 of 107.6 inches.

South Carolina College Bans Homosexuality in the Name of God

Erskine College had two volleyball players come out as gay and decided to bible up.

Last year we featured the stories of Drew Davis and Juan Varona, two gay Erskine College volleyball players who had found acceptance from their teammates in the small school in rural South Carolina. After we wrote about them the team went on to the NCAA tournament, one of only six teams in the country to appear in the postseason.

Now Erskine College has issued a new official statement that is expected to drive a no-gays policy at the school and create an atmosphere where LGBT people do not feel safe:

Christ affirms that marital union is to be between a man and woman (Matt 19:4-6). The Bible teaches that monogamous marriage between a man and a woman is God’s intended design for humanity and that sexual intimacy has its proper place only within the context of marriage (1 Thes. 4:3-5, Col. 3:5-7). Sexual relations outside of marriage or between persons of the same sex are spoken of in scripture as sin and contrary to the will of the Creator (Rom. 1:26-27; 1 Cor. 6:9-10; 1 Tim. 1:9-11).

We believe the Bible teaches that all sexual activity outside the covenant of marriage is sinful and therefore ultimately destructive to the parties involved. As a Christian academic community, and in light of our institutional mission, members of the Erskine community are expected to follow the teachings of scripture concerning matters of human sexuality and institutional decisions will be made in light of this position.

Ok, fair enough. But if they’re going to start using the bible to set college policy, shouldn’t they start banning tattoos, punishing unkempt hair, and suspending anybody wearing clothing made from two different fabrics?
