tel aviv stove oven top binyamin bib netanyahu whats going on avigdor liberman the melting pot is boiling over eli yishai we must remove the foreign elements zehava gal on no no we need to add more tolerance cooks white chef hats
I'm rather proud of this one, since it took the original metaphor--a pot boiling over--and stretched it without breaking, since there's so many ways to play with it in this situation. The situation, by the by, is that the enormous influx of illegal African immigrants to Israel (particularly South Tel Aviv) has inflamed tensions between them and the native Israelis, and this has indeed reached a boiling point with near-daily altercations between the groups. Netanyahu and Liberman ought to be familiar enough; on the right is Shas's Eli Yishai, the hardliner leading the charge to deport the African infiltrators, and next to him is Meretz honcho (honchette?) Zehava Gal-On, voicing the left's more forgiving approach.
