He may be the Afghani Larry David and the Taliban just can’t deal with him.
Read the last paragraph. This guy hated the second to last Jewish man in Afghanistan. Once they were both imprisoned together, and they argues so much the Taliban let them go rather than keep listening to it.
This reminds me of that guy on Mount St. Helen’s, Harry R. Truman.
Raw human suffering has no association with anything other than the pain felt by the soul of the individual. -Eddie01
Yitzhak Levy - Israel’s Kabul station chief needs a better deep cover name... lol
Some people say he won't ;eave because he refuses to give his wife a get, others because he hasn't paid his debts.
You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you might even learn something.
Woody Allen as “Zebulon!”
A flying carpet would come in handy about now.
Pay him to leave? Let him rot there.
At least they can’t keep him from going to church.
The Taliban and ISIS need this poor fool desperately, without a Jew for 1200km, who would be there to blame for Pashtun v Pashtun squabble over a goat situation.
Give that man an M240B.
“When the great Rabbi Israel Baal Shem-Tov saw misfortune threatening the Jews it was his custom to go into a certain part of the forest to meditate. There he would light a fire, say a special prayer, and the miracle would be accomplished and the misfortune averted.
Later, when his disciple, the celebrated Magid of Mezritch, had occasion, for the same reason, to intercede with heaven, he would go to the same place in the forest and say: “Master of the Universe, listen! I do not know how to light the fire, but I am still able to say the prayer.” And again the miracle would be accomplished.
Still later, Rabbi Moshe-Leib of Sasov, in order to save his people once more, would go into the forest and say: “I do not know how to light the fire, I do not know the prayer, but I know the place and this must be sufficient.” It was sufficient and the miracle was accomplished.
Then it fell to Rabbi Israel of Rizhyn to overcome misfortune. Sitting in his armchair, his head in his hands, he spoke to G-d: “I am unable to light the fire and I do not know the prayer; I cannot even find the place in the forest. All I can do is to tell the story, and this must be sufficient.” And it was sufficient.
G-d made man because he loves stories”.
It’s hard for me to believe that there is only one Jew left in Afghanistan. How are they deciding who’s a ‘Jew’?
surprised the taliban did not give him the Danny Pearl treatment. I guess nobody told KSM he was there back in the day.
taliban probably happy he is there as it demonstrates how tolerant they are LOL
Its hard to tell because the eruption expanded the lake and put his cabin underwater but as far as anyone knows, he's still there.
