Puppy love

Saved Posted by Hello

When it chief rabbi's family isn't busy kidnapping and beating people up, its diplomatic wives aren't involved in verbal abuse and blinded by celebrity, etc. etc. etc., Israel is actually a pretty easy place to love. And here's one of the reasons why. For the past couple of months, the country seems to have been anxiously following the fate of... 25 little unvaccinated puppies who were illegally smuggled into Israel from Uzbekistan and were threatened with 'deportion.' Animal rights groups have argued that they were too weak to survive the flight back, and that they could not guarantee the animals would be treated well back home. Now, the Tel Aviv Magistrates Court has come up with a compromise that might allow the dogs to stay in the Jewish State. The country can now heave a huge sigh of relief and the papers can get back to covering minor subjects like disengagement.
Really. Only in Israel....
