You were right the first time … it's impossible to find humor in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Trying to milk it for money is kind of pathetic. Although if you search on You-Tube for Pat Condell you can find some fairly on point commentary on what is going on in that area of the world that is entertaining in a sardonic kind of way.
